An April 11th Poem

(Better late than never)
Started this poem early yesterday before other loves prevailed💗

PAD Challenge day 11: For today's prompt, write a prime number poem.
Thank-you Robert Lee Brewer for this helpful paragraph😉
"And if you need help with remembering which numbers are prime numbers,
 I've got you covered (here's a list of prime numbers up to 100: 
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97)."

Got a picture of these beauties while on a bicycle ride yesterday afternoon...

Eleven days in
to the month that begins
earth's em'rald unveiling of valleys and hills
of stealing our breath
with sweet petal-pleth-
-ora of tulips and daffodils 

Eleven days in 
to bud-quickening
giddy with green in innumerable shades
as carol of bird
and dust being stirred
spark's wander-must's lustiest promenades 

Eleven days in
to nature's broadest grin
as rolling vistas and woodlands unfold
 from humming looms
rush hour of blooms
welling with springtime's wonder to behold

  1. lol I couldn't remember what a prime number was either and just went with any old numbers that worked in my poem and hope I landed on some. This is wonderful!

    1. Thank-you! Your prime #s poem was super impressive. Mine is a bit of a cop-out but I'm itching to write about April! Esp. this year. It's such a sweet treat compared to our recent past cold Aprils<3


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed by the visit! I welcome and appreciate, if thought you care to speak; the value and the input of compliment or critique
