Review for April 2023

April begins
with rain and snow
always time
for poetry to grow

The Academy of American Poets began National Poetry Month in April 1996.

During Holy Week this year, I read from Luci Shaw’s books published by Paraclete Press. I often return to Luci Shaw’s work.

snowdrops still bloom
in the sun

Scarlet Dragonfly Journal Issue 13 – April 2023

For Earth Day, I posted at Poems For Bulletin Boards: Happy Earth Day 2023. Perhaps a few ideas for bulletin boards and lesson plans.

Earth Day was founded on April 22, 1970. You can visit Gaylord Nelson, Founder of Earth Day for more information.

And as I wrote in the last two posts, Time Of Singing poetry journal began Volume 50 with the Spring 2023 issue. TOS was one of the first journals to publish my poetry.

Thank you

A Poem For April

a poem for April
from a small town
by Lake Michigan
our Great Lake
in Wisconsin

not Winter
because of the light
and snowdrops
yet not really

like the time
when a project
is almost complete
a special day
almost here

New poem today

My post for the Bloganuary prompt for January 14, 2022 was for the prompt, Write about a challenge you faced and overcame. I quoted from the Psalms.

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 27: 14

My post also relates to the WordPrompt for April – GREEN.

And Earth Day is April 22.
