My poem for this prompt just happened to also be my first poem for NaPoWriMo!

For those who were interested in the back-story to my surreal poem a couple weeks back, I've posted it here:

This month we do a special poem a day series that extends way beyond the blog (NPM) so the poems won't necessarily go with the theme. Back on task in MAY.

Mine goes back to the plunging pool at Tovara, Nayarit.

Okay, not regional, but just wanted to share.

I've left two links -- one for NaPoWriMo Prompts, in case you need help getting through the week; and one for my NaPoWriMo category, as all my poems are regional...

I've also made a page just for NaPoWriMo links. Go play!

This poem relates specifically to events that have escalated in Port Phillip Bay since January 2008.

Well the latest isn't region but there are quite a few in the archives.

Sweet idea here!

I hope it's okay I posted twice! This poem is not my region, but regional really. Make sense?

Thanks for reading!

See my poem In the End for a bit of regional flair.
