Comment on today’s poem to win a copy of my poetry book, “(After) Confession… I’m giving away a copy every day. Scroll down below the poem for more details about this Poetry Challenge.

No winner today. I think we are all feeling fatigue as Poetry Month nears the end, you the readers/commenters, and I certainly am as the writer! I’ll do a raffle tomorrow, or not, no big deal. I’ve been so appreciative of how this project has gone so far. 

Now onto today’s poem. Don’t forget to comment, and check back tomorrow to see if you’ve won!

Okay, there’s a reason I stopped writing rhyming poems in 4th grade! I wanted to challenge myself, do something silly, so here it goes. It is much harder than it looks, at least for me. I have a new appreciation for Dr. Seuss now.

All the art here is from my sketchbooks over the years, some of my “better” work. Believe me, I have so many pages of clunkers and mis-trials, but I’m not brave enough to show those! I’ve learned so much and found the enjoyment in all of it.  Any other little-a artists and experimenters out there?
