many forms of poetry

Just some thoughts
and to be continued —
why we need poetry!

 

winter becomes spring
once again
poetry

sunset becomes night
dawn, then day
poetry

despair becomes hope
once again
poetry

the mind settles
into a new peace
poetry

words find their
shape on a page
poetry

The WordPress tag for National Poetry Month is growing rapidly.  So many good ideas, for all ages.

Also, I was just at The Haiku Foundation website–they are supporting a National Haiku Poetry Day on April 17.  http://www.thehaikufoundation.org

      1. Yes, beauty in the mystery!
        Your repetition, and the fluid movement in your poem, is striking. It’s like a supple backbone of the poem.

  1. Oh I SO love this too, Ellen (I’m becoming redundant, I fear)–from your words about poetry, I can tell you’re a gal after my own heart!! I’ll have to check that link promptly–every year it seems I miss “our” month! God bless you richly.
