Celebrating with Ruth Ayres and others at Discover Play Build. And starting the second week of April-- poetry month.
It was a good week, full of snow on Tuesday, Wednesday and flowers blooming Thursday, Friday. I've written a poem every day for my "tiny things" goal, and will certainly write on! Imogene and I visited the Denver Museum of Science and Nature, a favorite spot each Tuesday and finally saw The Vikings exhibit. Some parts are a bit beyond her, but I think she is continuing to broaden her understanding, and really loves looking and asking questions. Ingrid visits Friday afternoons and we really don't do much, just "be". We walked to my neighborhood park, stopped for an impromptu magic show by two children who live nearby and Ingrid played on the new jungle gym. We also drew pictures together, read a few books and then went to eat at Noodles, her most favorite spot in the world--really! Our country's and world's political stage widens, and I celebrate speaking out when I can.
Yesterday for Poetry Friday, Diane Mayr shared a new poem form connected to haiku. It's called the "Cherita" (1, 2, 3 lines) and you can find her post here. I was intrigued, have continued to write haiku and read books and articles about them, and thought this would fit my thoughts of today's 'tiny thing.' No titles!
this minute cherished
outside smelling the lilacs
celebrating a finished poem
the tiny stub will last
for one more page
I am grateful
