  1. Easter ham dinner
    Savory aroma now
    Smiles all around

    —————————–
    Haiku for you! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

    • Sofia Cabrera

      Ah, love it, Naomi! Super great job! πŸ˜€

      Also, I know (to everyone) that I’ve been cutting out from the blog recently, even the meetings, too. I’ve just been so busy. 😦 I promise I’ll jump back in. ❀

    • Gabrielle Lovell

      Aw this is SO cute! I actually went to and Easter dinner yesterday and we had a beef roast, so not ham but your poem described exactly what I went through yesterday! I love it! I also love how short it is but how it rhymed and how relatable it is. Amazing!!! πŸ™‚ ❀

    • Yumm!!!!! I’m kinda hungry now!!! This is so cute!

  2. Sofia Cabrera

    Rise and Shine,
    And give god the glory, glory.
    Thank god for this wonderful
    Day that he’s created,
    bringing us joy and happiness.
    He’s kept us all alive,
    forgiving us for our sins.
    So hop on right along,
    heat on into the park,
    and go hunt some eggs!
    It’s Easter!
    ——-
    Wow, I haven’t written a poem in a while! I hope to un-rust my poem muscles during NaPo. Can’t wait to see everyone else’s! ❀

    • Gabrielle Lovell

      Aw! This is so amazing and so cute! I love the brightness and airiness of Spring, and you captured it perfectly! I also love how you added a Christian touch to it, since that’s what Easter is really and truly about. Amazing job, I love love love it! ❀ πŸ™‚

      • Sofia Cabrera

        Thank you so much, Gabby! I tried to capture spring in a new beginning, fresh air, like that. I’m so happy that you liked the poem, I can’t wait to see what the next prompt is! ❀

    • This is really cute Sofia!

  3. I call her on the phone
    Thankful I’m not alone
    All she does is talk
    About how her boyfriend rocks
    Don’t get me wrong, I love my sister
    Sometimes she just makes it hard to miss her
    Hanging up the call
    Thinking, β€œI want it all”
    The normal things she has
    Knowing it’s in my past
    The tears start pouring down
    Thoughts floating all around
    As soon as I calm my head
    The websites, I check
    Show me you’re okay
    And I know that I can say
    β€œI made it through today
    I’ll live another day.”

    Unfortunately, this is what I did yesterday.

  4. Unrelated to the prompt:
    I wrote this as well

    How do I say I miss you
    Without admitting the truth
    About all my stupid fears
    For why you’re still not here
    Honestly, I’m terrified
    I know I said I’d try
    But even the stars
    Remind me you’re so far
    The worst pain I’ve ever felt
    Added to the loneliness I’m dealt
    I’m the one to blame
    Will it ever be the same?
    I’m so sorry
    That we can’t just be
    Know I haven’t given up
    The same for you, I trust?
    Hope keeps me waiting
    For the day we can take this pain
    And toss it away

  5. Gabrielle Lovell

    Easter eggs all of the ground
    Smiling as you run amongst the crowd
    Seeing people you haven’t seen in ages
    Hanging around in silly phases
    Eating as much as you stomach can hold
    Sour candy and chocolate bunny molds
    Beautiful centerpieces and decorations
    Such a wonderful time like I’m on vacation
    Daisy’s and tulips and thick, green, grass
    Oh I hope this wonderful day will last
    We prayed, we laughed, and we smiled
    I wanted it to last a longer while
    Delicious food and family around
    What a glorious day, my feet aren’t on the ground
    I smile as I say one final prayer
    Thank you God for letting me be here.

    ——
    This kind of sums up how my Easter went, I visited my grandma for a delicious breakfast, then hunted for eggs, then ate lunch and a ton of candy, then went to my aunts for Easter dinner played Jenga, talked and just hung out for a while. I had an amazing day and I hoped you all did too! Any comments are appreciated! πŸ™‚ ❀

    • That’s so neat Gabbi! There’s no better way to spend Easter than with the people you love most!

    • Sofia Cabrera

      Wow, that sounds like the perfect Easter to me! Candy, hunting, a awesome breakfast…I wish mine were like that! I didn’t go egg hunting this year. But we did a home-made one, also one in the stables. (Wasn’t a smart idea, XD) Lol, I’m glad you had a great Easter, fabulous poem! ❀ πŸ˜€

      • Gabrielle Lovell

        Yay! I’m so happy you liked it! I’m getting older, so I wanted to do a final egg hunt before I got too old. XD. Thank you again! πŸ˜€

      • Sofia Cabrera

        Haha, egg hunts are fun! I don;t think I’ll stop doing them any times soon, considering I’m 11! πŸ˜‰ My friends think I’m too old to be calling “Horses!” Out the window while we pass by them, but there’s no such thing as being too old! πŸ˜€ ❀

    • You love easter don’t you? lol, awesome poem Gabby!!!

      • Gabrielle Lovell

        Haha! Yes, right next to Christmas, Easter is my favorite holiday! XD πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

  6. *My poem for the day! It’s spring break so I’ve been doing a lot of reading*

    I sat there turning page after page
    Entranced, and drawn in without a doubt

    These characters would become my friends
    This world my new home.

    For I found myself in between
    the pages of a sweet book.

    • Gabrielle Lovell

      Ooh! I love this Emilee! I love how you described reading and how you make it seem so amazing. I love your poem, excellent job! πŸ™‚ ❀

    • Sofia Cabrera

      That is EXACTLY how I feel when I am reading a super good book! Great job describing it!
      I was reading a book earlier this morning, and that totally describes the feeling. This is a awesome poem, Emilee! Love this so much! πŸ™‚

  7. I shared with joy
    the rising of our Lord.
    I ate brunch
    and saw the pure blue sky
    arched over our celebration.
    We nibbled on chocolate bunnies
    and sang songs of victory.
    it is a feeling light as air,
    to be loved and to love.
    and yet it is richly deep
    heavy with knowing this truth,
    drawn closer to Him and to all He made.
    And I shed the hard skin,
    and open my hands.
    I have been freed

    • Gabrielle Lovell

      Wow, this is so beautiful Grace. I love how Christian it is and how you put Christ into your poem. Amazing job! πŸ™‚ ❀

    • Sofia Cabrera

      I love the last line, Grace! I love poems that are Christian but give a fun feeling at the same time. Amazing job!

  8. Yesterday was a little rough, but it was better than I expected.
    ______________________________________
    He is risen.
    Rejoice and celebrate His homecoming,
    His love has triumphed, once again.
    Cast out the Devil, at least a few hours,
    Finally, finally, peace resides in this house.
    Remember the fallen, the defeated, and the weary,
    Honor their courage, their kindness, their truth,
    As we feast in His name.
    Discover my words, my joy, my sadness,
    Remember that Love always wins in the end.
    Thank you, for all that you’ve done,
    Never will you be truly alone.

  9. Alyssa Holmes

    Rising early from the bed,
    My room is messy, so’s my head
    But I throw on my bracelets, three of my rings
    Hope I look okay, as I prepare to leave
    Full of laughter, with my friends
    Happy I’m here surrounded by them.

  10. I hope to leave this day behind
    And hope a better one I find
    I look right at her face I see
    Colors from the ocean
    One day after another
    The same and different
    Just with more colors

  11. Lydia Alailima

    Write
    Sleep
    Eat
    Repeat
    Each sentence
    Meticulously
    Written
    My greed for extra sleep
    The food
    Powering my body
    For another day
    Write
    Sleep
    Eat
    Repeat.

  12. If this is bad, just know that never write poems so this is all new to me.
    _____

    When waking up, I got a late start
    Jumping out of bed, I got up to start my day
    Thinking of all the fun I was going to take part
    All too soon I found myself on my way
    Into the car, and out the door to my cousins’ place
    My mouth watering at the though of a feast
    Reaching my destination I saw many a familiar face
    My baby brother in tow, acting like a beast
    We finished our dinner and went out to play
    Our game of ultimate Frisbee becoming a battle front
    It seemed as though I only got in the way
    Now came the Easter Egg hunt
    My cousin’s and brother took them all, those little thieves
    Before we headed inside and ate cake
    The night came to an end and we had to leave
    Ending the night with full stomachs and heartache

    • Gabrielle Lovell

      Wow! I love this, sounds like you had a great Easter! Amazing poem, I love how you rhymed everything perfectly, which is tough when you’re writing poems with stories in them. Awesome poem! πŸ˜€

      • Thank you! I was so nervous about it cause poems are like a whole new world to me.

      • Gabrielle Lovell

        Haha, I know, when I first started poetry, I was super nervous too, but you’ve got nothing to worry about, since your poem was amazing! πŸ˜€

  13. A Walk in the City,

    Strolling by shops,

    With displays oh so pretty.

    We cross the streets,

    but we need to watch carefully,

    because most are in their own world,

    and the drivers drive recklessly.

    Later in our journey we stop at a store,

    filled with some of my favorite things

    For me books are a new adventure, not a bore.

    I’m maybe more used to not writing poems….

    • Gabrielle Lovell

      Haha, no, this is great Sara! Your poems are awesome! I love going to little shops and book stores like this, great job! πŸ™‚

  14. Hospital and iron transfusions! How do I write a poem about that? πŸ™‚ Perhaps my cat Lark knows.

  15. Heather Simon

    Another day of Dissatisfaction
    Another day of Procrastination

    Poetry presented to me, but far in a fictional field
    Even fictional beings could grasp inspiration

    At the end of the day, movies watched and enjoyed
    Even uselessness could be rewarded

    Irony is acknowledged, spirits are roused

    Another night of Dejection
    Another night of Determination

    But rays of light streak through my hopeful dream and bring forth
    Another day of Procrastination

    …I did finish a module exam yesterday though.

    • Sofia Cabrera

      Wow, this is wonderful, Heather! Great job! I finished a module exam for science today, 78 %. My mom is on FIRE ; that I feel like she’s going to burst out at me. She’s making me repeat it. My family isn’t getting along, since last year something’s been missing. I wish I knew what it was. Great job though, this was a wonderful poem, Heather! Loved it! ❀ πŸ™‚

  16. Bridget Bishop

    This has nothing to do with the prompt but…

    She was wearing a black dress.
    He was crying in distress.
    All they wanted was someone to caress.

    Depression and pain had taken him away while she was mourning the world’s dismay.
    Fate decided the puzzle pieces fit together and she introduced herself as Heather.
    He looked into her eyes and saw himselfi
    Wishing he could put his life on a shelf.
    But instead everything was new
    And his love would be a breakthrough.

    Her heart was broken by exterior words.
    Misunderstood, she lost bird singing a broken song to a broken mirror pleading “Please let my emotions be clearer.”
    He was told at a young age you’ll never be normal, instead he kept to his morals.
    He lived his life in sadness; there was nothing he could do, but then God said “let her see you.”
    Depression ruled them but the reign is over.
    They worshipped the king and gave them a life luckier than a four leaf clover.

  17. Mary-Kelly Reimel

    A microwaved meal
    And the spray of gulf water
    A sunburn waiting to heal
    And a drive with best friends.
