NATIONAL POETRY MONTH

POEM A DAY

WEEK 3: April 15-21

Today is third weekly installment of 7 poems I’m posting during April in recognition of National Poetry Month. Although I’m only a wannabe poet I’m sharing my collection of poems with you on each Tuesday this month. By the end of the month I’ll have shared 30 poems, equaling one per day for the month (in four installments). Note: the fourth week will include 9 a poems to cover the short week at the end of April.

Read the first installment,  National Poetry Month Poem a Day: Week 1—April 1-7 , the second, National Poetry Month Poem a Day: Week 2—April 8-14 and the fourth, National Poetry Month Poem a Day: Week 4—April 22-30.

Poetry is not my genre. However, I play around with it, mostly when I’m a passenger in the car. I cull them from a list of odd rhyming words or words that relate to each other somehow.

I present the third installment of seven poems:

APRIL 15: IN SPRING IS HOPE ETERNAL

March is weary

April is teary

May is leery

June is dearie DSC00244e

APRIL 16: ALIENS IN OUR MIDST

There’s aliens in our midst.

Illegal aliens.

Those among us without sanction.

 

Yet I wonder…

If we label them illegal aliens…

Does that make us legal aliens?

APRIL 17: SOMEDAY

My someday has come and gone,

Unfilled dreams have left me alone

I cannot conceive of the years left to me

What they will ultimately be.

APRIL 18: SEA THINGS

I see things in the wave

Sea things in the wave

Nature’s offerings

Man’s debris

APRIL 19: AFTERLIFE

Plant a tree on me

Let its leaves nourish from me

Let birds sing joyfully for me

APRIL 20: BIRDS

Birds flying

Experiencing a freedom

Truly not free

APRIL 21: LOU

My parents did name me Lou,

I was named for my dad, Lou,

We are two Lous,

Which of us Lous,

Will lose the race to the loo?
