Welcome, April! Welcome Poetry Month!
Waking to Maine's April Fool's Day... just a little joke for spring....
|Surprise... one more time...|
Hooray! It is the start of the A to Z Challenge! And this year I am again posting vanity plates in Maine. Because it is April, National Poetry Month, I'm going to write an acrostic, a haiku, or some other type of poem that I don't even know yet. But each will be based on the letters, the word or the words on a license plate.
The A to Z Challenge is to write to the letters of the alphabet in order, one a day each day in April, except Sunday. On Sunday I will post a bonus plate - one I've found that intrigues me. It may be a duplicate letter or one that starts with a number instead of a letter, but still has a message for us.
There are themes galore being done. If you are interested in reading more A to Z posts, go to Blogging from A to Z to read through the links and see what other posts interest you. Take a peek. Spread the love of our alphabet around! If you want to see which AtoZers I've visited each day, check out the AtoZ tab below the blog title or go here AtoZ Challenge on Padlet
Please leave a comment here! Maybe you have a vanity plate and would like to tell me your story! When you comment here, please include your post's link so that I can return the visit easily. You can do that even if you aren't in the AtoZ. I'd like to visit your site, if you don't mind!
Here is the FIRST LICENSE PLATE OF THE CHALLENGE: A is for...
...I am going to assume this is "Abundance" - no spaces, one word. And this is the poem for this lucky person's plate. I never got to meet this person, so I don't know why they chose this word to put on their vanity plate, so I get to make anything up I want.
Sufficient, it is, enough, even more;
a gift one might deem as riches "galore";
tho' abundance exceeds just deserts, I am sure,
it may simply mirror the life that's in store.

Here's a link to last year's AtoZ Challenge post with more A vanity plates and a poem: A Vanity 2016.
See you tomorrow, though it will not be an AtoZ post. We take Sunday's off. But I will have a filler post and poem! Monday will be the letter B.
Don't forget to check out the Progressive Poem that starts today with Heidi Mordhorst at my juicy little universe! The schedule is on the right navigation. I will be up later in the month - the 21st - to add a line. This year is focusing on making sure it is a kid's poem, so it is sure to be fun to read and keep track of its progress this month. Heidi already has her line - the very first line of the poem - posted:
I'm fidget, friction, ragged edges --
We are on our way!
