#NPM18 - 21/30 - Sleepover

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.

Here is Poem Twenty-One:


  1. How absolutely delightful Linda! It was ok me a while today, but. Finally got something posted, and it is about a granddaughter too!

    1. I just sat down at the computer again, Cheriee. Granddaughters are good things to write about. Ingrid and I had lots of fun reading and first, going to our favorite Indie bookstore. Thanks!

  2. Perfect evening. I miss my granddaughter.

    1. Thanks, Glenda. I assume your granddaughter lives away in perhaps another state. I have a grandson far away too. Wish I could see him more often.

  3. Love this! I shared a readaloud and songs with my great niece and nephew last night. Wondering what you and Ingrid were reading.

    1. We went to our favorite Tattered Cover and I bought her The Wild Robot and The Wild Robot Escapes (autographed!). We started The Wild Robot, but read some picture books, and a favorite is one I'm sharing tomorrow, Philip Stead's All The Animals Where I Live, just a beautiful story! Thanks, Ramona, how fun to spend that time with your niece and nephew.


Thanks for visiting!
