April is National Poetry Month. I plan to celebrate by posting a haiga (haiku and image) every day. I would love to hear what you are doing this month with poetry.

Happy First Day of National Poetry Month! Lovely haiga! We've had lots of cool rainy days here since spring arrived. I'd like to see a few sunny days in a row.

Thanks for the picture reminding me of what we have to look forward too- we are still in the happy to see snowdrops and crocus stage!

I'm not planning anything organized for the month, but I did post my first original poem today (although it's not Real Poetry)!

Lovely haiku and picture, as usual :)

I plan to post an original Marianne poem every day in the form of a Laturne over at http://poet4kids.blogspot.com

Happy National Poetry Month!

Absolutely beautiful! I love your haikus and accompanying images. Happy National Poetry Month.

I’m stopping by to let you know that I’ve got a book up for grabs in my April Pay It Forward Book Exchange. Stop by for details on how to win.

What a great idea! Great merging of words and image. I might try to do something similar.

Your photographs are glorious. Thank you for sharing them. The daffodills just make me smile.

I always love your picture n' poetry pairings. This one made me think about our new tree. We planted a cherry tree in the fall, and all winter I've been worried that it would die. That first planting is the hardest. The last couple of weeks I've watched the buds come out and then bloom. Yes! It made it! Never in my life have I been cheering for a tree.
