April is National Poetry Month

NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.

I've done this challenge before in 2015 and 2017. I published a few of my 2015 efforts and the whole 30 that I wrote with illustrations in 2017. Creating and publishing every day was time consuming and I decided I was too busy to try in 2020. At least I thought I was too busy a few weeks ago. But things change (sarcastic laugh). So come back in April and see what happens. I'll publish the prompts and my efforts but don't look for pictures every day.  Until then, here is one of my poems from March 2010.


Rotten snow rusts.
Gardens and forests still sleep.
Wind’s iron fingers smear shadows.
We ache inside
Homesick for spring.

Hope you are all well and staying safe. Best wishes to you and your families.
