God rest you merry

Kristjaan at Carpe Diem encourages us to write a “full circle” haiku series using twelve words (bold), one per line in listed order, on a wintertime theme.


hoar frost on window
breath of heaven’s mist on trees
morning light sparkles

scent of mistletoe
cuddle under soft blanket
fireplace embers glow

poem of december
children praying for first snow
clouds whisper promise

lights on Christmas tree
wrap gifts in shiny paper
smile to see bright star

 

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 poets proud

If you enjoy versing, let’s rock it!
