Every month is writing month

Today, rather late in the month, I’ve come across the idea of National Poetry Writing Month. Write a poem a day throughout April. Superficially, that sounds much easier than my story a day challenge last month (I have another 3 or 4 of those finished off and polished now, so they’re not all hanging around in the half-written pile as long as I thought they might) but writing good poetry is hard. Nevertheless, as I said a while ago, you could do worse than a daily haiku as a writing exercise so it might be worth joining in for the last few days. I can’t say I come up with a haiku every morning, but I do fairly frequently and most of them are rubbish (it does seem to kickstart the brain though). I’ll share yesterday’s with you, the reader; it may inspire you to greater things:

Trees like standing stones
Rise from misty valley,
Cushioned in wet smoke.
