Greetings and welcome to Poets on Display during National Poetry Month/Blogging From A to Z April Challenge. I’m doing a poetry theme, so each day this month I’ll be featuring poets from the book Sunrise Summits: A Poetry Anthology, which was recently selected as a finalist for the 2017 Colorado Book Awards in the anthology category (information about the awards can be found by Clicking Here).

It’s an honor for me to continue to share the work of those who contributed to Northern Colorado Writers first poetry anthology and to have this work selected as an award finalist. The poets included are a shining example of the talent found in Northern Colorado Writers, LLC.

The poem posted below is not from the anthology. This way you get a wider read of each poet’s work. It’s been a challenge to get the poems to fit the letter theme, but I think I’ve worked it out. I  hope you enjoy what you read here.

Today’s letter:      L

Today’s Poem:  Love by June Clymer

Love 

The wind softly whispers

touch the petal of a rose

capture a raindrop

toes on top of toes.

 

Light up with laughter

catch a falling star

serenade a cricket

throw kisses from afar.

 

Seek out a memory

pull from the past

tell with description

be crazy, make it last.

 

Multiply the different loves

hang on to what is yours

use the right combination

to open many doors.

 

Upon a scene of heart to heart

not meant to keep a score

there lies a hidden treasure

behind those eyes there’s more.

 

From within a spark will grow

and suddenly attach

two hands will touch, fold as one

to make the final match.
