April - Poetry Month - Day Fourteen

It's April. It's Poetry Month! 

                It's a special day, my Granddaughter Ingrid's birthday! 

         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. I have so much been enjoying your April poems!
    Thank goodness for those grandkids!

  2. Ingrid is a lucky girl to have you as a grandmother, Linda! Wish her a happy birthday for me.

  3. Happy Birthday Ingrid! After all the storm damage last week, my husband made me some coasters (like your circles) out of the limbs from the tree we lost. They remind me of you! :)

    1. Ah, they make nice ones for sure. We used to cut one slice off our Christmas trees then burn the date into it each year for a keepsake. I've seen big slices used for painting too. Thanks for telling me, Leigh Anne.


Thanks for visiting!
