April Poetry Month - Day Thirteen - Paying Attention

It's April. It's Poetry Month!  

         Remember to check out the list of what everyone is doing at Susan Bruck's blog: Soul Blossom Living!
          Plus! Check each day for the added line to the Progressive Poem, created by Irene Latham, now hosted by Margaret Simon! The link is to the right!


My Plan: “I’m exploring the aesthetic of wabi-sabi, sometimes described as one that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature. I think walking out in nature this past year gave me the joy needed to keep going, so I’ve gathered photos taken since March 2020 for inspiration in composing haigas, sometimes other forms.”

    You have me thinking about all things dappled in nature!

  2. I love this picture and the idea of looking for imperfect in nature. What a beautiful idea for a poem!

  3. Dappled is one of my favorite words, and I love your illustrated definition!

  4. What a gorgeous representation of dappled.

  5. Definitely dappled!Absolutely perfect!!!

  6. Thanks, Catherine, Julieanne, & Carol. I imagine that nature defines oh so much more!

  7. I love the word, dapple! Thanks for the smile. :)

  8. Yes! Dappled is one of my favorite words! I used it in the Progressive Poem a few years ago. Fabulous photo and poem. Sometimes "we" go through life not noticing.....I mean as a child it just seemed normal to see whatever I saw in my daily life. Now I look back and see wonder and beauty and think how lucky I was. I once wanted to do a project in school and needed a grant to by disposable cameras for kids but it wasn't to write poems. I could see this being a great school activity on many levels.
