poem: Crafting

I spent every day in April poeming with the wonderful wordsters on the Poetic Asides blog for the poem-a-day challenge. I miss it already. Luckily there’s a weekly Wednesday prompt that I hope to partake in, and post here when I can. Today’s was to write a “crafty” poem. Here’s what I made.




at five she already knows

how buttons fixed and set

can petal and bloom.


the way a fuzzy pipe cleaner

bends to a strong green stem.


how a sprinkling of golden glitter

over a glob of glue mimics

sandy earth.


already feels the heart joy,

planting seeds of imagination.
