CloakedMonk’s MarchChallenge prompt – New World

Today marks the last entry of the March Challenge generously hosted by CloakedMonk. It has been an interesting and amusing month. Fellow poets introduced me to new forms of poetry; a couple of them I attempted; others I admire from a distance. 😉 I applaud the diligence put forth by our host and the participants. Thank you for sharing your creativity each day. May your creativity continue to flourish!

    I enjoyed your blog and have had a great time perusing your blog. If you’re interested I’d love to have a poem to showcase on my blog, you can find info in the ‘about’ section.


  2. What is it about Daffodils that lifts our spirits in spring? Perhaps their persistent color and disregard for late snow?


    • Becca Givens says:

      Donna – for our hardiness zone – daffodils are the first sign spring is on its way. There may be snow or ice in the forecast … and then all of a sudden – the daffodils pretty bonnets “suddenly appear” providing the hope that cold weather’s end is in sight!

    Another beauty, becca….you flourish with the written word and I feel there is no poetic form you could not master, or at the very least, embrace with all your heart. I also love Henry David Thoreau….thanks for sharing.
