NaPoWriMo 04/11/2017: Mud Dauber

2017 NaPoWriMo1

This month, I am collaborating with nonfiction author and photographer, Christy Peterson.  You are invited to write and submit a poem based on the photo in the comments. Tuesday calls for a tanka.

  1. Amazing! I just learned about tankas and am attempting one for Poetry Friday. Thanks for sharing your “mentor” poem!

    Isn’t it interesting how insects “know” how to do these things? Love your ending, Jone!
