Sing! Dance! Laugh! in the warmth
of the strengthening sun;
Sing! Dance! Laugh! when the light
of the lengthening day has begun!
And, a bit of haiku, #smallpoems from #clmooc, started by Algot, added to by Keven and Sheri:
— Algot Runeman (@algotruneman) April 12, 2020
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.
- Listen to the sounds around you — inside or outside. Capture, without naming, in words and phrases.
- Add a verse of haiku to add to the story –the one started by Algot [above]
- Read your own favorite poem and add a verse of your own.

April is time for NaPoWriMo — National Poetry Writing Month, try a bit of poetry and art to encourage others to be safe with each other. Something short. Something inclusive. Something of spring and hope. #NaPoWriMo/#GloPoWriMo
