Can you say adorable…Poetry Reading

First, this is a beautiful poem. Second, this has to be the cutest little guy reciting a Billy Collins poem I’ve ever seen or heard.

I wish I would’ve helped my children learn to memorize poetry like this.

There are other videos of him on YouTube if you’re interested!


NaPoWriMo~ say what

Calling all poets! April is National Poetry Writing Month — NaPoWriMo for short. Modeled after National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), NaPoWriMo is an annual project encouraging poets to write one poem each day in April. Source

Will I be able to write a poem everyday for thirty days…I’m not so sure…but I would like to give it a try.


I’ll be taking a class this summer on learning the fundamentals of poetry…so this could be considered excellent practice for me…opening my mind to the idea of poetry.

I’m not a poet-so what evs..right???-

Here goes~


Day 1

simplicity of routine- creature of habit

resistant to change- stuck in my ways

burdensome repetition-complacent in the predictable

Yearning for excitement-gasping for  air

loosening the choke-seeking an escape

understand the restlessness-release the passion

cap the brooding- drench the melancholy

Round-round-round-the sensations travel-

always returning to the simplicity of routine

That was actually kind of neat…freeing in a way…to let your thoughts wander!
