Poetry speaks soul to soul.
Creating a spark of recognition in the reader.
It ignites and inspires.
Firing off thoughts to share.
In celebration of April being ‘National Poetry Month’ I aim to post extra poetic offerings over the next few weeks.
I cannot promise a daily dose because my fluctuating health won’t allow for that.
However, I will do my best to put out smaller snippets a little more regularly as God gives me inspiration and strength.
They will be based on observations of life, loss, love and faith ~ with a stronger emphasis on life in this season where it is burgeoning all around us.
Today’s snippet (like subsequent Tuesdays ahead, hopefully), is a tanka poem using a 4-6-4-7-6 syllable pattern.
