Day 41 4.23.2020
Hello! Hello! my friends, of here and there—
In this a wish to you of hope and care!
These flowers, berries, leaves of green, a gift—
to bring a smile and help your hearts uplift.
I’ve been thinking of all my friends, even calling some I have not spoken to for years as our lives drifted apart from our home town. I’ve been hoping that all are well and adapting, and they are– moving forward in finding ways to continue their lives and to stay connected while staying safe.
And today, my friend Karen tweeted this, which helped focus my art today as a response:
Writing something positive to others also makes one’s own life more positive. And I certainly feel much better knowing this bit of art and poetry may lift another’s heart.
Write and send a positive note to someone today.
Also, I continued my attempts at couplets and iambic pentameter [see here].
Take care and stay safe my friends, and to all.
About this post:
Be safe out there. Find ways to help yourself, your family, and others keep going! We can do this together!
April is time for NaPoWriMo — National Poetry Writing Month, try a bit of poetry and art to encourage others to be safe with each other. Something short. Something inclusive. Something of spring and hope. #NaPoWriMo/#GloPoWriMo
The Academy of Poets encourages us to write #shelterinpoems. Get some ideas there and share your own.
Tons of information can be found at Poets.org: National Poetry Month and here: Virtual Programs.
National Council of Teachers of English also offers suggestions here.
