Day 23  I didn’t get to a post yesterday – what with the Garden Poems reading and other distractions. So consider that day a wild card as far as prompts go.

My next reading will be this Thursday – Moments Before Midnight Continue reading “Apr 23 #AprPAD #NaPoWRiMo”

Day 17 I have a good reason for being late-ish today. A great reason! I was poeming. That ABC poem from last Friday? – My muse decided what it really should consist of: and I’m mostly blind today so it took a while – and two devices – to type it out.

I’ll share it with you at the end of today’s offering.

 

Today’s prompt is “shared questions”. Continue reading “Apr 17 #AprPAD #NaPoWRiMo”
