April - Poetry Month - Day Four - A Surprising Loss

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!

           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.
         Best wishes for continuing good health to you all!

April 1 - haiku

April 3 - a couplet

Here's Number Four - a limerick


The last time I bought I was hurried.
I picked up a four-pack and scurried.
The surprise that when gone,
all sang the same song:
“They’re out everywhere!" Now I am worried!


  1. This is so funny! And who ever would have imagined that toilet paper would become a topic for a poem?!

    1. I know, but believe me when I say a weeks ago visit to Costco makes me wish I'd bought more! I am glad I captured this news, though it seems so silly! Thanks for coming by, Elisabeth!

  2. Oh dear! Hope you find some! A friend who traveled from Haiti to the US took some toilet paper along for family there. What a reversal!

    1. Wow, and yes, the toilet paper just disappeared! I'm fine, but wanted to write about this phenomenon for sure. Thanks, Ruth!


Thanks for visiting!
