April’s Fool: NaPoWriMo

April is National Poetry Month, and with that comes National Poetry Writing Month, or NaPoWriMo, the goal of which is to write 30 poems in 30 days. Numerous sites provide prompts each day throughout the month. I’ll pick and choose and try to remember to mention the source (if any). Today’s poem used two prompts: Fool/April Fool from Adele Kenny’s The Music In It blog and “arrival” from Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog. And remember: We’re focused on quantity, not necessarily quality! 🙂

April’s Fool (Day 1)

Spring wobbles in on training wheels,
learning to steer ahead, though
veering from side to side.

Spring shows up with tulips
wrapped in birdsong, worms and
smells of the mudden earth.

Spring delivers a letter,
stamped with Postage Due but
sealed with a rainy kiss.

Spring arrives like a baby—
no expectation but love, and
not yet knowing its name.
