April is Nationa/ Global Poetry Month. I’ve been “Playing With Poetry” this month along side Mary Lee Hahn, Margaret Simon, and Christie Wyman.
I have fun tools to use: Haikubes, Metaphor Dice, Paint Chip Poetry, and Magnetic Poetry. Plus I signed up for the daily prompts at Two Sylvias Press. My poems are in draft form and sometimes I combine prompts and tools. It IS playing with poetry after all.
Feel free to join us. What kind of poetic trouble can you get into by playing along? We’re at #playwithpoetryNPM on Twitter and Instagram.
Tuesday and yesterday were good poetry days for me. A poem that’s been rolling around in my brain for month came together. Not sharing here but some day.
And this morning I played with my magnets for this haiku:
dandelion between trees
