It is April…which means that it is National Poetry Month. Make an effort to read some poetry, write some poetry, recall your favorite poem and share it with someone.
Here are some Haiku. small thoughts in fragments, just to get me in the mood, poetry’s sound bytes.
A fawn dug under
spring’s layers of mud and snow;
thoughts among remnants.
silhouettes on glass;
starlings avoid flying through.
headaches are a bitch.
Expect colder skies;
winds catch you sleeping in Spring,
tornadoes toss trucks.
Pirates lounge around,
dream of New England autumns,
judges and quarters.^
