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!


April 15

Amazing azaleas!
Perky Pinks
Riotous Reds
Funky fuschias
Wonderful Whites
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!

April 19  

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
Synchronous rotation
A cause for celebration
That two bodies could learn to attune

April 21

Do sonnets catch phish?
Are quatrains run on tracks?
Are free verses costly?
Can acrostics be stacked?
