A Poetry Festival, Etc.

So I wrote a review of Saturday night at the Massachusetts Poetry Festival at Eye On Life.  It was a good night there, with Nikky Finney, Sherwin Bitsui, Wesley McNair and Joy Harjo.   GREAT stuff.  Worth writing about.

And, I wrote poem number 17 of 30 for NaPoWriMo and posted it on Facebook.  So there.  I posted poem number 18 here.

Today I intend to play a little catch up with four Haikus about rain:

‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’
“”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””

Anticipated  

The leaves were withheld
In dry anticipation
Awaiting the rain

‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’
“”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””

Whispered

The trees stretch skyward
Rain rustles all of their leaves
Whispering their joy

‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’
“”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””

Weighed 

Branches bent beneath
Thousands of quiet jewels
The weight of the rain

‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’
“”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””

Remembered 

Puddles of water
Reflect clouds in the blue sky
Remembering rain

These would be poems 19 through 22 of 30 for NaPoWriMo 2012
