Post 21 Means April is Coming!

Post 21 of 31 for March!  In amongst doing my two poems for March Madness 2013 Poetry Challenge and posting for Poetry Friday and a post a day in March for SOLSC, I am gearing up for Poetry Month in April!  I hope I'm not so busy that I miss watching spring happen!  Nah... that won't happen because...

I've been working on my posts, which will be short poems, in April for the A to Z Challenge, so I can just tweak them instead of starting from scratch.  Last year, I had all but maybe 2 done for April before it started.  I'm still working on E, G, U, W, X, Y and Z.  I'm getting there!  But I have to have a little bit better weather to finish.  I'm taking pictures, and the weather can't be so good that it doesn't make sense, but not so bad that I can't get to where I need to be or see it!  So those are all your hints about my theme! I'm thinking of cheating on a couple of letters... as in the letter might need to be in the word I'm going for.  But we'll see.  Could be there's an X out there.  I'm pretty sure there is a Z.  I just have to find it!

I posted an A to Z recap back in May 2012.  Yesterday, I messed with the timing in my video some, so I think it's better. I made it using all my images from the A to Z Challenge last year, set to music (permission granted) by Dream English. The images go from A (arms) to Z (zebra stripes), and are Tagxedos made with words from poems that I did with each one. If you want to read the actual poems and see the words longer on screen, you will have to go back to my April 2012 posts.  Here's where to find A is for Arms.  The rest are under the drop down for April 2012.

  2. Hello. Just thought I'd stop by to give you a wave *wave* and to wish you luck with this challenge. I love poetry, so I'll be popping back throughout April to see what you've come up with. If you fancy having a look at my blog during the challenge you'll find some poems written by yours truly. (Sorry for the shameless self-promotion!) :D

    1. Oh, glad I could help with a Poetry Friday reminder! Now about the busy and productive part...I need to do the laundry! Really. Nowhere in there have I carved out a time for housework!

    1. Have you done the A to Z? It really is fun, especially when you get a theme going and can find words to go with each letter of the alphabet. It doesn't have to be too intricate or involved.

    1. Thanks, Elsie! This year there will be a photo and a short poem...maybe more...depending on what I could find for the letter. I HAVE to get out this Saturday to finish up my last bit! nosnownosnownosnownosnow

  6. Donna, this is absolutely terrific. What a celebration of your poetry last year, & an inspiration for us all. I feel some pressure that I need a theme or a goal for April, but I don't have one. Guess I'd better start thinking-this all because of your terrific post! So, I guess, thanks!
