Haiku for Earth Day

everyday work
and easy to achieve
recycle cans

of an open window
bird songs

small flowers
near the kitchen windows

everyday beauty
to care for and see
flowers and trees

Earth Day was founded on April 22, 1970. You can visit Gaylord Nelson, Founder of Earth Day for more information.

National Poetry Month – April 2023

The Academy of American Poets began National Poetry Month in April 1996. I am grateful for poetry – for as long as I can remember. The Psalms, songs and music, acrostic poems, haiku, tanka, many forms.
