National Poetry Writing Month 2020

April 1, 2020

April has been chosen as National Poetry Writing Month in the UK, the US and Canada, and encourages people to write a poem a day throughout the month. I’ve made a modest start with a haiku, inspired by a walk along our nearby section of the Devon coastal path. (I am very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world, during this time of crisis, when we are staying at home, except for essential shopping and daily exercise.) The bright yellow gorse blooms all year round, but its flowers are especially vibrant in the spring. Today some small bluebells added their first colour of the year.

First day of April —
first Devon bluebell in bud.
Birds are building nests.

Meanwhile, delighted to see an old favourite, Cake-o-Saurus being beautifully perfomed on video, shared by English Hubs – Ruth Miskin – Training Centre. Click here to watch and listen to Elly reciting my poem.

Why not have a go at writing a poem each day of this month? To start you off, pick a favourite flower, food or game — write about how it makes you feel.
