I'll be filling in for [personal profile] jjhunter and getting us started with today's seed. I'm posting early to be on the safe side (thunderstorms are likely later). I thought this would be a fitting topic for April's end since April is National Poetry Month. Additionally two of the first communities I got involved with are [community profile] poetry and [community profile] dreamwidth_haikai.

Poetry's month may
be ending, but the joy in
words thrives in us still.

in haikai haiku
alternates with stanzas of
seven and seven

I find that these longer lines
offer opportunity

to luxuriate
in loquaciousness and fall
in love with wordplay

but enough of poetry
proselytizing; I'm glad

that you shaped words here
that you are finding a place
that you let me know
