When the explanation about the poem's origins are longer than the poem itself....
Everything but the Poem
NaPoWriMo, Day 3:
#TinkerSketch Prompt --> Draw to Music
SO I played a little Dittie on My Beautiful Piano (simply because I couldn't decide what music I wanted to draw to)....
Make some music make some noise
Forget about neighbours forget about poise
Blow a whistle bang a drum
Guitar or ukulele go ahead, strum
Get up and dance move your dancing feet
It's all good says Blue Cat Pete!
Move like a kid give it a whirl
Skip, hop or even twirl
Get some paper any will do
Even an old receipt that you already threw
The sky's the limit get out your pens,
Crayons can give your soul a cleanse
NaPoWriMo, Day 2:
I think I will base my poems on my doodles & sketches from @Tinkerlab's Instagram Doodle-a-Day Challenge. I also incorporated @Idearoom's Instagram Photo-a-Day prompt. Things just sort of come together. Today, I read a story to some Kindergarten kids & there was an owl in it. I also did some yoga with 1/2's & we were trees. Then we danced. Oh, how we danced! (It's called DPA, Daily Physical Activity.)
I LOVE THE ARTS:)
NaPoWriMo, Day 1:
The story of my poem:
Last night, I watched, 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.' (* a Super Cool show - see bottom for more about this.) Today happens to be April 1st, the beginning of National Poetry Month and the NaPoWriMo - 30 poems in 30 days Challenge. I came across 'alliteration' at school (I am a supply teacher). My Instagram Doodle-A-Day Sketchbook challenge by @TinkerLab is Circles. All of this came together to serve as my 'prompt' for Day 1.
Dance of Life
Billions of barely visible - and, even then, only with a Very Powerful Microscope (or a VPM) -
Smaller than small dancing circles
Make up life.
They circle and dance
And divide and live and die
And change or die
LIVELY; they dance together and become greater than one tiny circle;
More alive and afloat, armed with allies in this Awesome dance.

* About Cosmos:
Like the legendary original series by Carl Sagan, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, it is the saga of how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the series will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. It will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, such as theCosmic Calendar and The Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder and weaving science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.
Today is a great day to create a great day.
This site is my attempt at gathering all of my creativity that I have strewn about out 'there'....
