So what am I doing to celebrate this most wonderful month?
1. Plan to write a poem a day.
2. Thirty Days~Thirty Students~Thirty Poems at my Check It Out blog. Will feature student work each day.
3. Poetry Postcard project. Receive a poem on a postcard from one of my students.
The prompt at One Single Impression is “avatar”. When I read the word, I thought the movie and the little computer avatar of me on Yahoo. Decided to look up the definition of avatar and found this:
“embodiment: a new personification of a familiar idea; “the embodiment of hope”; “the incarnation of evil”; “the very avatar of cunning”–wordnet.princeton.edu
she flings seeds here, there
her avatar, kindness, shows
spring’s profuse blossoms
What are you doing for National Poetry Month?
good plan! i’m trying it too!
This is beautiful. The Rumphius effect!
I love the idea of sendind a postcard with a poem to friends. I am going to add this to my list of post-work activities I will indulge in. God bless you on this Good Friday and beginning of Easter weekend. Love, Annie
I have this image of birds flinging seeds around and flowers blooming. Spring is with us now!
So much ambition for the month – good for you! I’m looking forward to all the juicy reads.
