Adieu to April

Today brings to an end the April Poem a Day Challenge.  This was my second year of participation and I have greatly enjoyed it!
Since I have been writing a Poem a Day for over one year, writing a poem a day was not that big of a challenge to me anymore,
therefore, I chose to challenge myself further this month by not only writing a poem a day, but to also write a different form of poem each day,
plus I also chose to create some form of artwork daily for each poem. 
It was a challenge–but one I really enjoyed!!
Many thanks to NaPoWriMo 2014 and WD 2014 PAD Challenge for their daily prompts which often inspired me!

It’s National Opposites Day!

Shall I say goodbye when I mean hello?
And should I stay when I really want to go?
On this day of opposites,
Does anyone know what really fits?
If I say what I mean,
Will I mean what I say?
Oh Lord help me make it through this crazy day!
Perhaps it would be better to stay in bed,
And just skip this day instead,
But if sunrise is sunset, it’s over before it begins,
So I shall just play along ’til it ends!

National Opposites Day–January 25th

Goodbye July

Goodbye July
A fitting farewell to July was the sight of our Flag
Flying in the breeze at sunset tonight.

 

 

The days of July are coming to a close,
We have come to the end of its last day.
The sun has set on another month.
Summer is quickly running away…
