This month, I’m tagging along with Christie, Margaret, Jone, Mary Lee, and other writers to play with poetry for National Poetry Writing Month. I’ll be creating poems using haikubes, metaphor dice, magnet poetry, paint chips and anything else that catches my fancy.
There’s always a day in the early 20s of every daily writing challenge I undertake where I think I’m going to have to throw in the towel because there is literally nothing–NOTHING–to write. I messed around with magnet poetry for awhile but couldn’t make anything work, so I switched to haikubes and tried to get something there. Nothing. Finally, I decided to take what was right in front of me–
–and write a haiku using my new Cat Lovers Magnet Poetry Kit.

come snooze in the sun
my lap is your warm sofa
sleep is almost here
