{Inter}National Poetry Writing Month 2011~ it’s done!

{Inter} National Poetry Writing Month 2011 is over!

i must admit that   NaPoWriMo  did not go quite as i had hoped it would. there were two days i did not get to post a poem, though as of  today, i have posted 31 poems in April.  i have had the wonderful opportunity to meet more poets by participating in various sites’  “prompts”  {i am going to do a post very soon listing all of  the sites i’ve found that offer prompts and i hope to get more from everyone who reads the post. }   i only managed to reblog a few posts related to poetry and poets, but i started reblogging poetry before April and i will continue to do so.

my big regret is that i got behind in the posts for  .  featured poet of  the day.   laptop problems and a small flood are not valid excuses. i asked a friend of  mine if  i was too anal putting together my posts and he kindly said maybe too “fussy” ~ i will not do any less on the remaining featured poet posts than i did on the first ones though.  the whole point is to spotlight the amazing talent of  these people.  soooo here’s what i’m going to do ~  i am going to keep the “featured poet” feed up at the left top of  the page, beginning with the first poet whose post was not completed. his or her name and feed will stay there until the post about them is up. i will continue until everyone on the list has truly been featured. after that, i will continue to feature poets at least once a month, hopefully more. there are so many absolutely wonderful poets and i was not able to feature everyone i wanted to in one month.

if  you want to see any of  the posts ~ whether  .  featured poets,  .  poems or reblogs ~ you can either click on the category  .   “National Poetry Month”  .  or click on  .   “April 2011”   .  in the archives.

i would like to thank everyone who has visited haiku love songs in April ~ your visits {and comments} are greatly appreciated.

.

here are a couple of  things that i am going to participate in during May 2011 ~

.

May is for 5 Line Poetry sponsored by Tina Nguyen  { @TinaNguyen  } on her blog  .  A wish for the sky…  . ~  get the information {and cool badges for your blog}  .  HERE.  5 Line poetry includes .   gogyohka,  .  tanka,  .  cinquain,  .   pentastich  and probably more i don’t know about.  i will try to find more resources during the month, too.

.

.

NaBloPoMo ~  National Blog Posting Month {though they are actually doing it every month}  is providing daily prompts, as well as linking to blogs which register with them ~ get the info   HERE.

and don’t forget ~

from the day the twins were born,  Joey and Jodi were inseparable. only when they were older did they tell anyone that when they held hands they could make the monsters disappear. or at least go sleep at the neighbors.

.

what more can we want

than a world without monsters

a safe place for all

◦ ϫ Ѭ ϫ ◦

.

.

the form i used is  {i hope}  a .  haibun ~ prose ending with haiku. {though in the strictest sense this would be senryu, not haiku.} if you are bored, you may count the words and see that it is also a flash fiction 55.  i used several prompts as listed below:

.
