I’ve been participating in Laura Shovan’s fabulous #WaterPoemProject, and it’s the best decision I made for National Poetry Month. With only a few exceptions over the past several weeks, it’s been the first writing I’ve done each day. I check out the prompt, spend about 30 minutes writing a poem draft and creating a Canva imagepoem of it, and then I share it. Without Laura’s hard work setting up this huge project, I don’t think I’d be able to share a poem a day this year. So…thank you, Laura Shovan! And thanks for inviting me to be one of the writers to share a prompt! My prompt is up today here!
And here’s today’s poem, from my own prompt. In this poem, I imagined I was the force creating snow and sending it to earth with a mission:>) And while this may seem late in the year for snow for some readers, we’ve had snow three days this past week here in Minnesota. In fact, I have the front door open right now, and through the storm door I can see the couple inches of snow still on our front porch and porch chairs. It’s melted most everywhere else, but we face north, and not much sun gets onto our covered porch.

Like most everybody else, I’m experiencing lots of upheavals lately! I have no huge National Poetry Month plans–just hoping to share an imagepoem here each day (or as often as I can). I’m participating in Laura Shovan’s awesome #WaterPoemProject the best I can, so most of my poems will come from either that or from the PAD (Poem A Day) Challenge at Writers Digest. Grateful for the distraction of poetry and friends!
