April - Poetry Month - Day Eight

It's April. It's Poetry Month!

         Remember to check out the list of what everyone is doing at Jama Rattigan's blog: Jama's Alphabet Soup.

          And check on the Water Poem Project where every day, a poet is sharing a prompt connected to water, hosted and created by Laura Shovan!

Plus! Check each day for the added line to the Progressive Poem, created by Irene Latham, now hosted by Margaret Simon! The link is above and the graphic to the right!

           A leap with the theme of CIRCLES for poetry month, poems & small sketches. I am looking forward to reading everyone's posts. I'm sure I will love each one, knowing they're done during a time we've not lived before. I am worried about so many, those close and those far, my community, too. 

April 1 - haiku
April 2 - cinquain
April 3 - a couplet

April 4 - limerick
April 5 - a kyrielle

April 6 - a skinny
April 7 - quatrain

Best wishes for continuing good health to you all!

see hope balloons rise,
wi-fi news ­­of tender deeds
patching broken hearts ­–
share every time you notice
show all the times you care


  1. I love those balloons of hope. This is a beautiful poem for the challenge at Today’s Little Ditty.

    1. Thanks, Kay, I will share it there! I hadn't connected to Michele's challenge!

  2. Your lovely poem is exactly what we need right now, Linda. "Tender deeds" do patch "broken hearts."
