poem in your pocket day

When i began this blog 5 Mays ago, i did not realize today is designated annual “Poem in Your Pocket Day” by The League of Canadian Poets and Academy of American Poets!  How cool is that?  Here’s a pocket-sized poem for the occasion.

a fresh poem

home-grown in

fertile loam of

heart’s dark tome

let thoughts roam

new ideas phloem

seeded, weeded, and

(hopefully) read(ed)

whether new haiku

or favorite sonnet

remember

to carry a

poem in

your pocket!

happy poem in pocket day

A little limerick in honor of Poem in My Pocket Day…when I titled my blog, almost three years ago, I did not know it was a “national” holiday!
 
 

I carry a poem in my pocket

Obsession eccentric – don’t knock it!

May I read it aloud?

Make dead poet proud

If you enjoy verse, let’s rock it!
