Tomorrow marks one year of my journey in poem writing! It all begin on April 1, 2013 with the NaPoWriMo Challenge of writing a poem a day.  After finishing that April 2013 challenge I found I so enjoyed it that just kept writing a poem a day and thus this blog continued on.  It has been such a rewarding experience for me!  I have learned so much and have met so many interesting,talented people along the way.  I feel blessed for the opportunity! I hope to continue on with writing a poem day and plan to join in the April 2014 NaPoWriMo Challenge beginning tomorrow.  –Leona

Sleep Writing

In sleep
My mind writes verse
I wish I could capture
Such beautiful poetic lines

Leona J. Atkinson. 03-25-14

Tonight I fell asleep before writing my poem to post. I kept dreaming of poems and writing some in my sleep. Yet, when I woke up I could not remember any of them. I wish I could have,  as in my dreams they seemed to be very good. Thus, the reason I wrote this poem.

Spring Concert

The symphony
Musical vibrations
Reverberate in harmony
So sweet

(I was inspired to write this during my visit to the local symphony’s Spring concert last night.)
