I know it’s hard to believe April is here already.
But when I look out my window and see the trees and daffodils in bloom, I know it’s true.
And what a better month to celebrate poetry than in this colorful month of APRIL.
A HAIKU is a perfect poem to start the month off with. A short, simple poem which usually highlights nature–only three lines. The first and third lines each has five syllables and the second line has seven.
A scrubbed puppy just
after a bath and just
before a mud puddle.
I gave this Haiku a title, but you don’t have to.
See how easy that is. Go ahead–give it a try!
