I'm sorry that I've missed posting a couple of days during National Poetry Month this year. Certain things have diverted my attention away from poetry and blogging--a family emergency, the death of the only brother of one of my oldest and dearest friends, problems with our heating system, and lots of cooking and baking for Easter.
I went looking through my poetry collections for a poem to post today. Here's an acrostic that I thought would be appropriate for a lovely April day.
Sewn into softened
Eager to see the sun, they
Dig their roots deep,
Sprout up, up, up and blast off to the world above.
