#NPM18 - 9/30, A Haiga

April is  #NPM18 - National Poetry Month.
There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it. - Gustave Flaubert  
         Of interest:  See the page on the bar above for the Progressive Poem's schedule of poets, hosted by Irene Latham at Live Your Poem.   

        And, see what many are doing for Poetry Month, by looking HERE at Jama Rattigan's post at Jama's Alphabet Soup.
              My goal for Poetry MonthA haiku diary that may include other forms related to haiku, like haibun, haiga. monoku or renga. My first poem speaks of why I am handwriting the poems.

Here's Poem Nine, a haiga! You can read about this form here. I decided to put the words on the photo along with handwriting it. 


  1. How fun is this! Yes, jello in all its jiggly forms has been replaced by cauliflower, which we had mashed yesterday (4-8).

    1. Thank goodness I like it. It's everywhere! Thanks, Glenda!

  2. I laughed out loud at this one today. My family would rather have jello than cauliflower. Sigh..

    1. I should make one Jello dish for the grand-girls. I'm not sure if they know what it is. Thanks, Cheriee, it was fun to write!

  3. Loving the poetry/haiku series. What fun you must be having!

    1. Thanks, Barbara. Yes, lots of fun!
