April is National Poetry Month, and I am celebrating with many other bloggers by writing and sharing poetry. Please check out the hashtag #digipoetry on Twitter to find more poems written by writers in our blogging community.
My post today is serving double duty because I am also celebrating with Ruth Ayres.
Last year I tried the technique called anaphora which according to Margaret Simon is the repetition of a word or a group of words at the beginning of successive phrases. This may be breaking the rules a little, but I liked this layout better with my repetition of verbs.
I celebrate 31 days of writing
~ sharing stories, sharing words
I celebrate caps and gowns
~ looking back, moving on
I celebrate new life
~ sprouting green, shining sun
I celebrate 145 days of teaching
~ building relationships, learning with others
I celebrate reflection
~ making changes, growing along the way
Have a wonderful week filled with poetry and celebrations!
