Carleton Place, Ontario

April

March saunters off
in a daffodil flourish
and gambol of lambs,

April arrives
with a sprint of fools
and poets with

poems in pockets,
on street corners,

in taxis
on subways,

unfettered and borderless,
random rhymes,

poetic snippets (or
what’s a haiku for?)

heroic odes,
rich tapestries:

well-chiseled words,
cooked and eaten
and stirred.

Have you heard?
It’s rational

National
Poetry Month

Come,

wax poetic,
if you dare…
