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 an April Fool’s Joke involving the Graham Cracker Pie I featured on Wednesday this past week.

once she swapped salt for sugar
“April Fool’s,” she yelled.

BACK STORY: This actually happened. Not as a joke but as an accident. My husband and I were discussing something when I was making this pie for our daughter’s birthday. I scooped from what I thought was the sugar container and instead it was salt.
We didn’t know until we tasted a very salty meringue in the pie. Eew!
2020 Progressive Poem
Sunday seems like a good day to peek in on how the 2020 Progressive Poem is unfolding.
Buffy Silverman 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!
