Haiku 5/30 #npm23

Today, I decided to play along with Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s National Poetry Month Project. She’s writing her daily poems about 24 hours in the life of an old barn. For my poem, I chose one hour from the perspective of my coffee mug.

Coffee Mug, 4 A.M.

birds not yet singing
the darkness still and quiet
morning already?

This flexible calendar of ideas shared by Margaret and Molly is my guide for writing poetry this month.

    I’m here with you. It seems I don’t hear any birds until I’m walking and the sun is slowly rising and then it’s an opera!

    What a fun calendar, and I feel the feeling that your mug feels at 4:00 AM. (Though now the peepers are peeping all the time!) Thank you for playing along for the day, and happy happy rest of the month to you! xo, a.

    Just today, I noticed the morning light. There seems to always be one day when I just notice it. I wrote a haiku today as well…it was a crazy stormy day!
