I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

April Poem-A-Day Challenge

Robert Lee Brewer at Poetic Asides has issued a challenge to all and sundry for April – which is National Poetry Month in USA.

There will be a new prompt each day, and we may consider our responses first drafts, as the month of May will be for revision.

I intend a poem every day!

P.S. As noted in the comments, the link to Poetic Asides isn't working, and I can't make it work, although I see no reason why it shouldn't. Hopefully this is temporary. Otherwise, the full name of the site is "Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer" and Google will still get it for you.


  1. that link to poetic asides is broken...

  2. Hi Pearl!

    I'm afraid I can't make it work, though am doing everything right. But if you Google "Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer" or even just Poetic Asides, you'll get it.
