MoNaWriPo: Playing with Poetry 22/30

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.

This morning I wandered into the writing room and the next thing I knew I was playing with the magnetic words.

I discovered three things:

  • I need a bigger board (IKEA has some slick ones)
  • I need more words
  • I like organizing the words into groups for easier searching.

Guess who needs more “s”?

beneath the wild blooms
dawn crab asks,

who wanders a lunch?

Reminder to stop by on the Progressive Poem. It’s so fun to see how it travels in cyberspace. Can you believe we are at week three?
