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!

falling petals stream
My first haiku!
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???-
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!
