#NPM18 - 19/30 - tulip

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. I'm glad to see your poem today. I'm feeling rushed and don't want to miss the flowers.

    1. Thanks, Glenda, happy to offer some flowers for you!

  2. I am loving the relationships between your poems and the images, and how they take me into important realities in my own life.

    1. I think we do learn when we write, thanks for sharing your thoughts, too, Cheriee!


Thanks for visiting!
