April Showers

Happy Poetry Month

William Shakespeare said “Men are April when they woo, December when they wed. Maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.”

What say you email me i'll add it to this post

--Reason A. Poteet from US says
April seventeenth
marks the first of thousands
phone call number one
My husband calls me almost daily. No phone call has been as thrilling and anticipated as that first one on April 17, 1974, nearly thirty-five years ago. He
asked me to go to a movie, first date

--Quentin Clingerman from US says
Oh April showers
Rain dandelions galore
Yellow pollen falls

--William Sorlien from US says
When I first started writing poetry, I "installed" some guerilla art at the poetry park by Lake Phalen in my hometown,using chalk on the asphalt walkways to entice passersby with haiku. That summer evening there were much needed heavy rains and I got to watch the verses melt away, one by one...
evening rain
my poems washed away
to feed the earth

--Cindy Tebo from US says
between the blooms
of red bud and forsythia
nature's perfect sense of timing

...and more daisies to you Gillena, this a fresh and warming haiku.

RBroeker said...

Yes, Magyarm you are absolutly right. Even if you don't see the colour of the sun in this, you feel it while thinking the verse.

Best wishes
