Hump Day Poetry – Week 5


Hump Day Poetry is a weekly poetry blog-share every Wednesday. Here’s how you can join in

The rules:

1. Write a poem (any type of poetry, even for other challenges) You have from Wednesday to the following Tuesday to link up!
2. Grab the badge and display it on your blog to show your support.
3. Link it to my poem of the week with a pingback or by leaving the link to your poem in comments.
4. Visit other bloggers’ poetry for that week. Like, leave a comment, and share! (Please try to visit as many other poets as possible. Keep the community love flowing!)

Note: to create a pingback, simply include the url of this post somewhere in your post. Please check my page to ensure your pingback has posted. If not, it is either awaiting moderation, or the pingback failed (happens sometimes!). To ensure your post is seen, you may want to just add the link to my page. I would rather have duplicates than not get to read your poetry!

Click HERE for further information. And now for my poem of the week….


These Breezes
~for Lisa D.

I long to see your hair
blowing in the breeze
ocean spray and sand
o the day we will seize!

I long to see the wind
whipping through the air
blowing us together
along the beach out there

these care-free breezes
chasing us along
our resounding laughter
our only song

Happenings in the World of Poetry

I know it is still early March, but it is never too early to begin thinking about April which is National Poetry Month. Two sites (that I know of!) host Poetry the entire month of April:

Robert Brewer over at Poetic Asides hosts April PAD Challenge. You can see the guidelines here

Maureen Thorson hosts the NaPoWriMo here

And check out this article which lists 170 Literary Magazines Accepting Reprints (and new material too! For fiction, poetry, essays, etc.)

  1. What a wonderful capture of a breezy (in weather and spirit) time on the beach. Good luck with all your April adventures! Writing an A 2 Z of people who inspire you sounds really interesting.
    I wrote a rather weird hump poem I’ve yet to post. We’ll see.

    I felt the breeze. The saltiness of the ocean. The warmth of sand. 🙂 This is just… lovely! 🙂

    Thank you for telling me about NaPoWriMo! Just signed-up! 😀

    Oh… I love the imagery you conveyed in this poem. So carefree… 🙂

    And thank you for sharing the links Lori! YAY! My poetic heart jumps in glee. 😀 I already decided poetry as my theme for April’s A to Z challenge and I think I will be joining NaPoWriMo too. 😀 😀 😀
