“Spring Sunbeams,” #haiku, #NaPoWritMo

It’s day 14 of NaPoWritMo and my Poem-a-Day practice. I’m sure you’re tired of seeing these white pear tree blossoms, but they are so spectacular. My camera does not do them justice. I think I caught a faery glimmer in the trees. Do you see it?

spring sunbeam...
white blossoms sparkle
in the blue sky

My neighborhood is alive with color! Those clouds are bringing in a cold front. Snow tomorrow! I’d much rather have rain, but moisture is moisture.

April is National Poetry Month | How Will You Celebrate?

April 2021 marks the 25th annual celebration of poets and poetry! Join me and write a poem a day for thirty days!

2021 National Poetry Month Poster

National Poetry Month, a celebration of poetry which takes place each April, was introduced in 1996 and is organized by the Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry in the United States. The Academy of American Poets’ website Poets.org serves as a hub for information about local poetry events during the month.

I’m decided to kick off National Poetry Month with a new writing habit. I want to write a poem a day for this month… and continue this habit onward indefinitely.

Make sure to check out the National Poetry Month website on the Academy of American Poets at poets.org

Did you know writing a haiku is a form of mindfulness?

I’ve created a new category called: Poem-A-Day on my menu where we can tract my progress. Maybe you will want to do the same thing. Submit your blog to NaPoWritMo.net.

If you would like to link to this post, share the https:// address of this post in your own post. I will try to visit and comment on all the poetry. ❤

I’ll see you April 1st, 2021!
