#NPM18 - 16/30 - Notice & Wonder

April is #NPM18 - National Poetry Month.

"Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary."
                                                                                                      ~ Khalil Gibran
         Be sure to 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. Excellent assonance in "sneaking" and "peek" and "new." Your image is really appropriate to your poem.

    1. Thanks, I nearly wrote an explanation. I'm not sure if the wasp was eating, maybe gathering moisture? It was traveling up & down, up & down those leaves, didn't mind me getting close at all!

  2. I am assuming you took this photograph. I love the detail in the wasp and how your poem and it fill the spaces in each other.

    1. Thanks, Cheriee, I guess I should add my name with the photo. Yes, I took the pic, was watching closing because I saw some movement & it was this wasp, traveling as I described above.


Thanks for visiting!
