Day Twenty-One - wordplay 

      It's Easter. If you celebrate, I wish you a joyous day today. And because it's Easter, I thought I'd write one more poem from my playing with words.  

      Here is a brief piece from the History Channel that gives some history of the Easter symbols.

NPM19 - Day 19 - Wordplay With Hearts

It's Poetry Friday, the next to the final one in April! Amy Ludwig VanDerwater is our host on The Poem Farm, surely giving more information in her "poem story" about John and Betsy. She's kept us waiting each day on poetic cliffs to see what will happen next. Thanks for hosting, Amy!



   If you celebrate Easter or Passover, wishing you a joyous and peaceful time.

Continuing with ideas from the book. This time, wordplay


         One idea of wordplay, to me, is to go for a walk, this time around my house, to find something that stands out I might play with. I have a kind of bulletin board made of wire I found a few years ago that's filled with fun things I fancy - a felt banner I found a few years ago that says "celebrate", lots of snapshots, buttons, and birds in various forms, tiny drawings by Ingrid and Imogene. I hope you can imagine it. I stand and look sometimes, savoring the things that mean memories. Some favorites hanging there are hearts. Here's a small picture, and my poem having fun with "hearts".  



Heartfelt

heartthrob
will rob
heartstrings
broken wings
heartache
hard to take
heartbreak
teen ache
heartburn
adult turn
heart sick
never quick
heartsease
yes please
