NPM18 - 12/30 All Over Town

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.

  1. I just love this image. I've been admiring these bud clusters around here, and your poem today describes them perfectly!

    1. Thanks, Cheriee. These particular ones are what did it. They looked exactly like fists to me, baby ones of course.

  2. "fists of buds"!

    I love this!!

    Thank you again, Linda, for your generous words and giveaway of WITH MY HANDS.
