        It's Poetry Month, a pleasure to read so many wonderful poems and challenges throughout the poetry blogger world. I am trying to find time to join them sometimes during the month, but my goal is to work hard to write haiku and haiku-related poetry this month. See my latest below. 

           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. Find the many Poetry Month offerings rounded up by Jama Rattigan at Jama's Alphabet Soup.  

That little boy
digs into warm earth -
wiggle in his hand

  1. Such a peaceful image. I can't wait for worms and dirt.

  2. I love the line ""wiggle in his hand." That is perfect--makes me want to go dig in the dirt myself.

    1. Thanks, Kay. I once had a 'worm' experience with my grandson, & thought of him when I wrote this.

  3. Linda,
