So, April is National Poetry Month. In our wonderful digital age this means, of course, that a community has organically sprung up to write and share poetry this month: National Poetry Writing Month or NaPoWriMo. The idea is to write a poem a day all through April.
My efforts during November for NaNoWriMo (1 novel in one month) fell dismally short, but I’m blaming that on the fact that, you know, I was in the final stages of preparation for an international move. Add that excuse to the fact that my life at the moment seems to be naturally generating a lot of poetic outbursts with little or no encouragement, and I feel fairly confident that this time will be different. Plus, I’m starting out easy. My first offering is the haiku that sprang to life yesterday morning when Princess Imagination burrowed under my covers in the blessed moments before we had start the day.
Mommy, can we snuggle?
Will you hold me warm and close?
BEST ask of the day.
