April: National Poetry Month

How on earth did I forget this?

I have been so busy with being and working – that I missed that  National Poetry Month is here. A month long celebration of poems, poetics and poets.

“National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. We hope to increase the visibility and availability of poetry in popular culture while acknowledging and celebrating poetry’s ability to sustain itself in the many places where it is practiced and appreciated.”

I had better get cracking and write some poems now!

 


Scared of Friday the 13th

Oh my! Today is the day of superstition! Friday the 13th

For those that are not aware – in western mythology a Friday the 13th is bad-luck. A day of misfortune. Unfortunately no one really seems to know why this might be the case!

I have never placed any belief in the bad-luck of Friday the 13th – and so far I have not seen any side-effects. The town of Port Dover in Ontario actually celebrates the day! It started out as a motor-cycle enthusiast excuse to show of bikes and party – and now is pretty much just an excuse to party.

So Happy Friday the Thirteenth! And Good Luck to all


Haiku: Show (HH Prompt)

Haiku 1:
show me yours and i’ll
show you mine she said grinning.
We’re still comparing.

Haiku 2
the secret she said
is to show and never tell.
She turned out the light

Haiku 3
The show must go on
spring summer winter or fall
to stop is to die.

Haiku: Try (HH Prompt)

Haiku 1:
like the Jedi said
there is no TRY or NOT only
do or do not

Haiku 2
inflamed by spring air
I circle closer to her.
She sashays away.

Haiku 3
try to run away
your winter whispers follow;
STOP possessing me!
