April is National Poetry Month. I am going to be publishing a haiku every day. Who's with me?
It does not have to be a haiku for you. I am just curious if, as writers, you will take part in a poetry challenge.
OK. How did I think it was March? Oh, well. Looking forward to reading a lot of great poetry this month.
Its in my pyschic diary and has been for some time. I actually want to do a Hub on Haiku itself. Alas! Looks like it's going to be awhile. Good on you, though. How's your health, by the way? drop me a line.
i hadn't intended on doing something like this, but now that you mention it. . .I might attempt it. Although I am not sure I have the time. When I write poetry, it is most often fairly effortless because it just comes to me naturally. Something sparks an idea and out it pours. Whenever I purposely sit down to flesh out an idea or to do something like write for a challenge, it usually takes more time, thought, and effort. I know it can be done, though. It could be good for me, provided I find something things I want to write about or something I want to say. It's not as easy when the muse doesn't present a topic seemingly at random. I can tell you one thing, however, and that is that I will not likely be writing any haikus. I don't usually do well with structure and rules when it comes to poetry. Oh, make that two things. I look forward to reading yours. At least I'll try to read them. I'm so busy lately that I hardly get to read anything anymore online or off.
For the last 88 days I have been working on a challenge of 101 pieces of paintings, part of my 101 Days Of Creativity (which ends on April 15th). I know life can get busy, so I have to challenge myself. You don't have to do haiku. Write your style.
I would love this. I write some poetry. It might sound odd, but can you post the rules that a poem a haiku. I have been out of school awhile. Thank you.
Hi Gina I didn't know it was poetry month. I'd love to give it a try! I will write Haiku with all of you but if I feel I need to write another style of poetry can I also include that as well?
I have really enjoyed reading all the poetry that has been posted this month so far. Keep up the great work!
For those of you who have not started, it is never too late to start.
