The quiet world waves
from six feet; some will point out
when the lilacs bloom.
The poem above is a haiku: learn how to write one here [Kenn Nesbitt ] and here [The Writing Cooperative ].

Be safe out there. Find ways to help yourself, your family, and others keep going! We can do this together!
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
The Academy of Poets encourages us to write #shelterinpoems. Get some ideas there and share your own.
Tons of information can be found at Poets.org: National Poetry Month and here: Virtual Programs.
National Council of Teachers of English also offers suggestions here.

I’m soooooo excited for the lilacs to bloom here, but in the meantime… The tulip buds show their colors and they WANT to open… the magnolia tree has bloomed full, and the flowering almond has buds that are ready to POP! I’m excited for when they all go POP! POP! POP!
Hi Joy, I’d love to see a flowering almond. We have two magnolia trees in our neighborhood and I love them. Some people also have dogwood, which are so lovely with their four petals. We have a type of dogwood that blew in on a seed one year and took hold. We let it grow. Pop! is right — we do enjoy the spring when it pops its bright and soft colors for us to enjoy. Take care… ~ Sheri
