This National Poetry Month(NPM), I am writing and sharing original poems about food, family and feasts. Sundays will be a day to reshare a poem from the past. A list of links to previous poems is HERE.
Since 2018, I have participated in the Two Sylvias Press poetry prompts for NPM. Two years ago I wrote a poem about my grandmother’s superstition with cucumbers.
sliced a cucumber
motion with the end. Getting
the poison out
when I slice
my hand guides
the end piece
in circles. What a cure for

2020 Progressive Poem Update:
Sunday seems like a good day to peek in on how the 2020 Progressive Poem is unfolding.
Linda Mitchell at A Word Edgewise has today’s lines.
Irene Latham who began this poem project back in 2012, has handed it over to Margaret Simon to organize. I am so grateful to both Irene and Margaret for this wonderful April collaboration to kick of National Poetry Month.
Each day in April a different poet will add a line to this poem begun here today. No one knows where it will go or how it will get there, but it always gets there beautifully!
