The time to express yourself in poetry is upon us! Today is April 1st and that means it’s the start of National Poetry Month! Yes! There are many ways people can celebrate, but some choose to participate in NaPoWriMo, (National Poetry Writing Month) which is a 30-day poetry writing challenge.
The poems can be any style or length, but if you would like to follow daily prompts, visit the official NaPoWriMo website for instructions and inspiration.
I usually freelance and come up with my own ideas, but today I chose to do a mash-up of the site’s prompt, which is “carpe diem” and April Fools’ Day. What better way to usher in April than with some poetry! Seize the day! Enjoy!
Fool For Love (Haiku)
April’s fool wears red.
An easy target for laughs.
Take heart, it’s all love.
For more delicious servings of poetry this month, please visit these bloggers as they are also participating in NaPoWriMo!
