Happy Poetry Friday
I’ve taken up the Poetry Sisters March challenge of writing a dizain poem for closing out the month of March. Look for more dizain poems with the hashtag #PoetryPals.
DIZAIN FOR SPRING
Spring springs discombobulating senses.
Teasing with her summer-like advances.
Boomerangs back to winter’s offenses.
Snowflakes dusting down on grass and branches.
Wicked-whipping-winds slow spring expanses.
Robin’s chirrup draws away my doldrums,
her mirth inspires a passel of poems:
An ode to pass through patches in-between,
dizain to rain swooshing out hum-drum-glums,
and abecedarian garden’s green!

I came across a new environmental book by Kathleen Dean Moore called EARTH’S WILD MUSIC Celebrating and Defending the Songs of the Natural World. Along with the book a series of videos have been produced with readings by poets and music by different musicians. I’ve included Albatross below read by Jane Hirshfield and music by Rachelle McCabe (piano). Here’s a link for more info on the book and accompanying videos.
Sending out more heartfelt thoughts for all those taken by the shooting this week in Boulder Colorado.
