The Poetry Friday Roundup is HERE!

 

Welcome to the first Friday of National Poetry Month! Susan has the Poetry Month Project Roundup for lots of Poetry Friday bloggers' projects. Today we'll get to see your work in progress!




The 2021 Progressive Poem is off to a great start! Follow its progress through the blogs at this post from Margaret.

And as for me? This year, all I can manage is a haiku a day. I briefly thought about skipping a year, but that didn't last. How could I NOT write a poem a day in April?!?!


Here are my poems from April 1 and April 2.

Now, on to the roundup!

  1. Thank you for hosting, Mary Lee! Although I don't love the April Fool's day forecast, I do love your April 1 haiku. The forsythia is just starting to open in my neighborhood.

  12. Let's get it started! Whoo hoo! I'm excited to read your Haiku Diary, Mary Lee (and no you canNOT skip a year; to write each day IS giving yourself grace. Are you tweeting them? I'm focusing on a poem a day in the private Facebook group I created as an accountability parking lot. I hope others might want to participate too (hint hint). Happy NPM!

  20. Mary Lee, I read both of your haiku; they so encapsulate the essence of spring. The flowering joy, the birdsong... that wren...just yesterday in a post I wondered: How can such a little bird have such a big voice? So full of glory, too. Many thanks for these and for hosting today.
