May’s big “Flower Moon”

Blooming in the eastern sky

Year’s last Supermoon

Haiku

“A super moon is the result of the full moon coinciding with the moon’s closest point of orbit in relation to the Earth, which is known as perigee. The result is that the moon is not only full, but looks closer to us and brighter than usual. On average, a super moon is seven percent bigger and 15 percent brighter than a full moon.

The May Super Flower Moon is the last super moon this year.”

The time has come

May’s skirts rustle as she tiptoes

Through the dancing tulips 

Sowing seeds of florescence

Carpeting the world with flowers

Adieu to April

Adieu to April--Farewell poem--Nonet
Original Photographs by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

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!

Candy in the garden
Easy on the eyes
Found amongst the rocks
Under sunny skies
Fragrant white  tufts
Umbels with purple centers
Candytuft in the garden
A welcome sight when one enters
