A Poem for day one of National Poetry Writing Month

 April 1st is the First Day of National Poetry Writing Month. 

To participate online and write 30 poems in 30 days  here’s a link to the National Poetry Writing Month blog: http://www.napowrimo.net

Here’s my first poem

Mustache Surprise

Mustache cloud
sitting in the sky
over a silver beam of light…
one, two crisscrossing 
three pairs of wings soaring high 

Detail from "Through A Sunflower" pencil with 3 birds-blog


This drawing is a pencil sketch detail for the picture book I’m working on called  Through a Sunflower. I added a couple extra birds for the poem.
