Well, May 1st is at the door and April, with its poetry writing challenge, comes to an end. Thanks everyone, for bearing with me while I went on my poem-writing bent.
I’m glad I accepted the challenge; I’ve learned a lot about interesting poetry forms and exercised my creative muscles. The NaPoWriMo and Writer’s Digest sites have posted inspiring prompts that I’d still like to try sometime.
It seems that our winter is also over. Snow has melted, trees are budding, birds are singing in the woods beside us. For me this winter was a tough one, but my oncologist tells me the pills are working and ridding my body of leukemic cells. My blood test last week looked very good. Now that May’s here, it’s time for me to exercise other muscles, do some spring cleaning, sewing, digging in the soil.
Brian, over at Writing from the Heart with Brian, has posted a list of 100 things he’s thankful for. Take a quick hop over and read his list, see how many things you have in common. His post has inspired me to ponder on the subject. Can I list 100 things I’m thankful for?
Oh, easily, once I start considering all the everyday joys! Maybe I’ll start off in May by posting a short list every day, a dozen things I’m thankful for – and perhaps my list will include a short poem or story. Also, I’ve come across some intriguing words in books I’ve read recently that I’d like to incorporate into some posts.
So for now….
Farewell my lovely April muse, now I choose spade over pen But if inspired by a colorful bug or the song of a bird in the nearby glen, I feel your touch again, well then…
