April - Poetry Month - Day Seventeen - A Wake-up


It's April. It's Poetry Month!  

         Remember to check out the list of what everyone is doing at Susan Bruck's blog: Soul Blossom Living!
         
          Plus! Check each day for the added line to the Progressive Poem, created by Irene Latham, now hosted by Margaret Simon! The link is to the right!

           TIME TO CELEBRATE POETRY! 

My Plan: “I’m exploring the aesthetic of wabi-sabi, sometimes described as one that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature. I think walking out in nature this past year gave me the joy needed to keep going, so I’ve gathered photos taken since March 2020 for inspiration in composing haigas, sometimes other forms.”

woke me up for spring

April - Poetry Month - Day 16 - Poetry Friday - Spruce (Shadows or Sunlight)

 

It's April. It's Poetry Month!  And it's Poetry Friday with Jama Rattigan at Jama's Alphabet Soup! She's sharing a wonderful post about Carol Ann Duffy the UK Poet Laureate, whose poem about poetry is a lovely thing this April poetry month. Thanks very much, Jama!

Changes by sunlight

in the garden’s corner spruce,

then I look again.

Shadows create magic, too.

Contemplating calls for tea.
