April - Poetry Month - Day Fifteen

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.

  1. Yummy! A lunch of apples sounds pretty good, especially with your lovely poem and illustration.

    1. Thanks, Kay, apples keep for a long time, thank goodness! And though I didn't add that part, I think they're healthy for me, too.

  2. Those wooden circles do make perfect apples...and I swear it looks like you trimmed that third one with your own teeth! I love "nature's glow/autumn's show." Keep on circling!

    1. Actually, no teeth, ha! They trim fairly easily with scissors! This has been a gift to me to do these, Heidi, taking time which is what I have! Thanks!

  3. You are having so much fun with these circles! I love seeing what each day will bring. Apples are a favorite of mine, too. I agree, "there's nothing better" to crunch!

    1. They were my 'go-to' lunch at school nearly every day, kept me going! I had to write to give some attention and love to them! Thanks, Catherine!


Thanks for visiting!
