Poetry Month: Poetry is Coming 1 of 30


For the month of April, I'll be writing poetry each day in celebration of National Poetry Month.  I've decided not choose a theme, not to plan the writing, but instead to wait to see what poetry finds me each day.  Here we go....


Poetry is Coming
Shhhh!
I hear poetry
tiptoeing
on light feet,
hiding 
around the corner.

Shhhh!
I hear poetry
whispering
in the spring wind,
rustling
through treetops.  

Shhhh!
I hear poetry
playing
by the creek,
wading
on the water's edge.  

Shhhh! 
I hear poetry
waiting
to surprise us,
waiting
to be heard.
