April May Call the Tune

The coming month showers us with significance
for solidarity with worthy causes:

Alcohol Awareness Month, 

Autism Awareness Month,

Confederate History Month,

Jazz Appreciation Month,

National Child Abuse Prevention Month,

National Poetry Month,

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

In response to this the cruelest of lunar cycles,
I shall again participate 
in National Poetry Writing Month

(For a challenging writing prompt,
try stringing all these noble causes together in one single poem…)

Looking forward to seeing you (reading you) in NaPoWriMo)!

        Thanks, Andrew….they are meant to represent the wild gears in my brain…always turning, grinding away :-P Sometimes I wish they would just stop and give me a moment’s peace, you know???
