This Bud’s For You

The Spring flowers
starting their bloom
Nature’s powers
pushing back gloom
Life perseveres
despite our fears;
without our doubt

I am happy to say my ha’sonnet “Getting Across” is featured on the FREE VERSE REVOLUTION site today, 25 March 2020. It was written for the FREE VERSE REVOLUTION March Theme “Bridges.”

Bouncing Around

There comes a time
to go to bed
when there’s a rhyme
stuck in my head
that feels it must
be free, though just
somehow not now

Thanks to Susi Bocks at I Write Her for pointing out today, 21 March, is World Poetry Day in her “Celebrate Your Passion” post! I didn’t realize that when I posted my poem above. Why not take the time today to discover new poets, read poetry you love, or write something just because!
