Poetry Month - Day Eighteen - Oops

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.

Best wishes for continuing good health to you all!

I ran out of time
to create a good rhyme.
I made biscuits instead,
better than bread.
This tiny brown circle
will have to suffice.
To munch on a biscuit

was awfully nice.


  1. I like the silliness--and biscuits sound wonderful.

    1. Thanks, Kay, yes, they were yummy! I haven't made them in a long time.

  2. Love this fun poem! I made biscuits this month too. Tried out the recipe from the NYT! But I still like my mom's recipe best.

    1. I love biscuits, & love that you made them, too, Ramona. It felt like a good time to do some baking! Thanks!

  3. I love this, Linda! I also feel the pressure "to create a good rhyme." Making biscuits sounds like a perfect antidote to these troubling days.

    1. It was nice to do something in the kitchen for sure, Catherine. It's just me so I don't really need to cook much! And the poem was fun, but was not what I originally planned. The day to day does feel like pressure sometimes. Thanks!
