Day 30 Spring Things


Sing! Dance! Laugh! in the warmth

of the strengthening sun;

Sing! Dance! Laugh! when the light

of the lengthening day has begun!


Easter, from Ēostre or Ostara, goddess of dawn, according to Wikipedia.

And, a bit of haiku, #smallpoems from #clmooc, started by Algot, added to by Keven and Sheri:


Yes! I heard it too!

A flutter and much chatter,

A chorus of joy


Voices heard, unseen,

Hundreds singing their welcomes,

hidden in the spruce.


  1. Listen to the sounds around you — inside or outside. Capture, without naming, in words and phrases.
  2. Add a verse of haiku to add to the story –the one started by Algot [above]
  3. Read your own favorite poem and add a verse of your own.
