For this wonderful month of April, Poetry month, I made the goal to write haiku and haiku-related poems. It's been rewarding to write something new every day. I've put all that I wrote in a page above if you'd like to read some of the poems.
Here is the final one.

It's Poem In Your Pocket day, too. My class will be sharing a poem with staff members today so they too can carry a poem in their pocket!
I'm also happy that some of us are sharing on twitter with the hashtag #DigiPoetry, created by Margaret Simon, of Reflections on The Teche.You're welcome to join us. There have been so many offerings this month, and I was sorry to have days when I did not have the time to read other beautiful words or contribute a poem myself. All were rounded up by Jama Rattigan at Jama's Alphabet Soup. I wrote a lot of poetry and read even more. It was a month filled with words. As the late Mark Strand wrote:
“Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.”
