UPDATE: The last day of April?  Really?  Sad to see it come to an end.  All month (plus a 10-day “countdown”), we’ve shared Robert’s 2020 April Poem-a-Day Challenge prompts right here at Poetic Bloomings.  We suspended our own Sunday prompts and other features during April, in favor of simply poeming alongside the WD Poetic Asides group. It’s been great fun!

To those who have joined us, whether regularly or sporadically:  you have made our April fly by.  It has been our pleasure to host you.  We hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have.  You are a treasure to Walt and me!

ANNOUNCEMENT:
Tomorrow (May 1), look for Walt’s weekly “For Your Consideration” prompts to begin again.  We will also resume our Sunday morning “Seed” prompts, and Wednesday “Inform Poet” prompts.  Enjoy the last day of Robert Lee Brewer’s April PAD Challenge at Asides, and then let’s jump back into tending our garden here at Bloomings!

Connect, keep healthy, and poem on!

Welcome to April, Bloomers! We’re glad you are here! We will provide Robert’s 2020 April Poem-a-Day Challenge prompts right here at Poetic Bloomings each day.  We will suspend our own Sunday prompts during April, in favor of simply poeming alongside the WD Poetic Asides group.

We know you!  And we are better for it!

ANNOUNCEMENT:
This Friday (May 1), look for Walt’s weekly “For Your Consideration” prompts to begin again.  We will also resume our Sunday morning “Seed” prompts, and Wednesday “Inform Poet” prompts.  Enjoy the remaining days of Robert Lee Brewer’s April PAD Challenge at Asides, and then let’s jump back into tending our garden here at Bloomings!
