Here’s one thing I know,
Standing under orange sky,
I’m still chasing dreams.
Teases dry, winter branches,
On New Year’s Day, reminding
Dreamers there’s hope once again.
The moon in daylight
Must feel very out of place
Alone in blue sky
Missing twinkling stars. Sometimes
The sky’s too bright to be loved.
Displaced, waning moon
Staring at the glorious sun
In cloudless, blue sky.
Everyone ignores pale moon
While the bright sun is shining.
National Poetry Writing Month is a poetry writing challenge to write a poem a day, which takes place every year in April. Follow the link to find out more, be inspired, get daily prompts and meet other poets!
For Day 22, 22nd April, Earth Day, my poem is an acrostic combination of a tanka (Earth) and a haiku (Day).
Trees stare at river,
Watching rippling reflections.
River stares at sky,
Admiring its vast blue hue.
Leaf falls on grass, blade quivers.
Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday!
This year is my fourth AtoZ Challenge. My theme this year is poetry once again. I’ll be writing a haiku a day, but I’m also adding a new hobby to the posts, photography. I will post one of my photos, or a donated photo, every day to accompany my haiku.
This April, I’ll also be sharing my poems and joining another group of poets at National Poetry Writing Month, organised since 2003 by Maureen Thorson. Write 30 poems in 30 days. I’m in! What about you?
