Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery


This post was inspired by M. Zane McClellan, a very talented poet, in honor of Pi Day (new to me!). You can find specifics for writing guidelines for a “Piku” at his blog: http://thepoetrychannel.wordpress.com/2014/03/14/an-ode-to-pi/#like-936 -including external link.

The syllable requirements are listed next to each of my poem’s lines. Zane has a link for more info and a great example he wrote himself. Thanks to Zane for schooling me on a new style!

3-Spring’s newness
4-displaying joy’s
9-sharing hope to all witnessing eyes
6-reflecting peaceful hues,
5-meant to encourage

        That is really great to know. You are welcome, so glad that you enjoyed the experience. Also, I love birds and that photo is great.

      • That photo is awesome! Being there in the moment would have been great- but I’m grateful someone WAS there to share it with the rest of us. I love birds too. When I lived in Mississippi I had the most fruitful bird feeder and fell in love with species identification(and the birds too! Lol). The favorite bird I captured by photo was an indigo bunting- that is one crazy amazing bird. I have lots of pictures- maybe I’ll make a collage and work up a poem for spring. Are you on “inspire Elizabeth duty”? LOL. Do you bird watch or anything?

    • It’s pretty much spring here in Vegas. There are plethora of new bird songs outside of my window! Spring themed poems are popping up on all the blogs I follow- it’s a beautiful thing! Thank you. Hope it arrives soon for you.m
