When is the last time
you felt the warmth of a dirt path
beneath your feet, inhaled
the mustiness of a still pond, tickled
your palm atop the tips of tall grass, mimicked
the call of a Canada Goose?
Go, listen for the stirrings of spring
and don't forget - you're a part of it too.

This is linked with "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Taking it to the Streets" hosted by Susie Clevenger. Write a "street poem" offering a bit of wisdom, hope, encouragement, or something to bring a smile to someone's face. I imagine my poem on the office wall - perhaps a few will leave for the weekend a bit earlier and head for the countryside?
For the month of April, I am participating in NaPoWriMo2014 or National Poetry Writing Month. The website is HERE.
In celebration of this year's challenge, I will be giving away a free book of my poetry. If you are interested in participating in this drawing, please click the red logo at the top of my side bar and leave your name and a means to reach (blog, email, etc) you in the comment section.
