April 2022 – National Poetry Month Week 3
Sorry for the delay. A medical emergency on April 22 ended this year’s goals. Enjoy the third week!
In a flash, muted and gone
April 16 – The year 1812
The pencil was created by William Monroe
Used for class notes and many a memo
Kentucky’s first distillery came into being
Creating many a riotous evening
“Old Ironsides” received its nickname
The pride of The Navy it’s claim to fame
A great overture filled with loud booms
Lighting the sky with firework flumes
April 17 – Easter Haiku
The scent of lilies
A subtle reminder of
One Man’s sacrifice
April 18 – Limerick
There once was a small resort city
Who focused a lot on committees
So much time spent
On where the money went
Turns out it was graft – what a pity!
Ever wonder if a opening daylily
Is little more than a plant’s yawning?
Or the explosion of daisies
A leafy “jazz hands”?
April 20 – Limerick
Whenever I look at the moon
The thoughts in my head make me swoon
A cause for celebration
That two bodies could learn to attune
Do sonnets catch phish?
Are quatrains run on tracks?
Are free verses costly?
Can acrostics be stacked?
