I’ve been doing a lot of spring cleaning at my house and on the blog. I’ll continue to update the challenge cheat sheet so you can find everything in one place. The main page of wordcraftpoetry.com also contains helpful links, and other widgets. If you’re looking for something, this might be the place to start. Don’t forget the navigation widgets on the right-hand side of the blog. I have them spit between word craft poetry, Colleen Chesebro, and Word Weaving poetry journal.
The good thing about cleaning is how the action of cleaning forces you to work in the moment. As I concentrated on the different tasks, I realized how good it felt to step away from the computer for a bit. I’m working on another book, and with all of my other projects, it’s easy to get worn out. This winter was especially cold and long, so I did something for myself. I created a yoga room! This will give me a place to exercise a few times a week. Now that the weather is warmer, I’ll have gardening chores to attend to. I bet you will too!
Everyone remember, this challenge is a time when you can step away from the challenges of life and immerse yourself in the written word. If it doesn’t work for you, don’t stress. Stop by to write poetry when you can. ❤️

D. L. Finn shared such a lovely image of dolphins. I was so impressed with everyone’s poetry this week. Thanks for joining in!
There were a couple of reasons why I chose David’s garland cinquain. I was mesmerized by how each verse flowed into the next, sharing the life of these gentle creatures. The flow of the stanzas mimicked the rhythm of the sea. The final cinquain, summed up the poem in a spectacular way. This is a delightful poem!
