NaWriPoMo19: Playing with Poetry 21/30

April is National/ 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.

Today I spent some time working on some poems for a poetry postcard project. I decided that I liked this new to me form, Gogyohka.

Gogyohka: 5 line poem. Newer Japanese form. Since there five lines I pulled form the Pain Chip box, five cards; one for each line.

They become moments that are playful and whimsical. These lines are all from five postcard poems I wrote. Here’s a sample:

In the dappled sunlight

raven circles above

after the avalanche of words

we found out stepping stones

in the shelter of the bluff

Reminder to stop by on the Progressive Poem. It’s so fun to see how it travels in cyberspace.
