I was driving home from my morning yoga class/workout and heard someone mention Earth Day. Dang, I thought, I should have posted an Earth Day poem for Poetry Friday. When I got home I figured better late than never. I searched my files for something appropriate, and came across this poem entitled “Recipe for a May Day.” That’s easy enough to adapt…so here it is, Happy Earth Day, Happy Poetry Friday, Happy April is Poetry Month, Happy Passover, etc etc.
Gather colors while you walk:
Choose the hues of sky and feathers.
Stir with greens of grass and trees.
Pick a pinch of petal purple.
Whisk with streaks of wormy pink.
Top with golden sun and breeze.
