World Poetry Day turned into a day whereby I sought poetry … it was far from what I expected.
I planned the day to be one of seeking images and places to photograph to accompany haiku but instead found things that were poetic on their own.

I enjoyed the heightened awareness around poetry today and hope you will all join in National Poetry Writing Month in April! 3 years ago
Writing poetry helps keep my mind focused, and today I just happened to write this
I offer it all over again under this goal in celebration of a day dedicated to an art I love
There are some beautiful poets on this site, and I salute you

These are but a few whose words hit those resonate chords that sound so soul deep 3 years ago
Today I completed a Haiku , started a few and joined ReadWritePoem. After Julie posted a link that gave further explanation about World Poetry Day, I couldn’t think of a reason not to join. So today I began creating a profile for another online community that offers inspiration ; ) 3 years ago
so I spent a good portion of the day starting (and in a few cases completing) haiku, and also taking some pictures that I am sure will inspire haiku, but I got so caught up in the health care debate, and slogged around in a garden on this first weekend of spring that posting what I did is gonna be a little late.
better late than never I guess 3 years ago

When I was talking to my mother on the phone, I told her what today was, and shared with her my favorite poems. We talked about Shakespeare mostly, since we both love his works. LOL
It was nice to share World Poetry day with my mother. 3 years ago

I have been seeping my brain with wonderful poems, as well as coming up with some beautiful ideas for my own poems on this gorgeous day!
I pulled out Intruction to Poetry by Burton Raffel, which has a good selection of different poets and their styles. 3 years ago

Some local person dropped of a little poster that said “Breakfast and Poetry with the Mayor” scheduled for Friday April 2, 2010.
I found out that is at 9:30 a.m. I might take an hour off of work so I might be able to attend, since it will be right across the street from the office.
The tickets are also very cheap, only $12.00, so I might seriously think about doing this as well. I know it isn’t in March, but it does focus on poetry. 3 years ago
since today is #wordwednesday (something only a few people mark on twitter for now, but I am sure more will follow) I posted a few haiku on my blog today and plan to do more on Sunday
ah haiku … now I know what to do with some of those photos for which a caption would become clutter! 3 years ago
The brain within its groove
Runs evenly and true;
But let a splinter swerve,
‘T were easier for you
To put the water back
When floods have slit the hills,
And scooped a turnpike for themselves,
And blotted out the mills! 3 years ago

I think I will spend the whole day reading and writing poetry!
I think this would be a great day to focus on a love of mine that I really have allowed to fall along the wayside.
I think I will soak myself in the works of my favorite poet, William Shakespeare.
As well as read some Emily Bronte, Robert Browning, Elizabeth Barret Browning, Dante, Lewis Carroll, Robert Frost and Walt Witman and Emily Dickinson. 3 years ago
Whenever I get Curious, I go to Google in order to discover more. 3 years ago
isn’t a part of world poetry month?
Perhaps it is a running start…. 3 years ago
I found my journal with all of my haiku scribbles ….. woo hoo! I love when a portion of a goal just falls into my lap like this! 3 years ago
