Poetry Month - Day Twenty-Six - Memory

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!

The chocolate chip 
does not ignore
its given chore: 
a joyous fraternity 
with cookie dough, 
a sweetest show –
I’m sure you know.

It lasts for all eternity.


  1. Yes, chocolate chip cookies are the "sweetest show!" I think I'll bake a batch today.

    1. I may soon. I probably can get more, but I have a half bag from sometime in the past, probably just enough for me! Thanks, Catherine!

  2. Yum! Sweet poem, Linda! " a joyous fraternity
    with cookie dough" - exactly! :)

    1. Thanks, Bridget, I'm going to have to bake soon. It's hard to write about food without having them!

  3. Yummy! Sweet fraternity indeed. I may have to join you in baking--I've done lots of bread, but have been trying not to bake the sweets.

    1. Well, i might not make the cookies if I had that delicious bread you've shared pictures of! It was a fun poem to write, Kay! Thanks!
