2021 APRIL POEM-A-DAY CHALLENGE, PROMPT #30

Today is our last April PAD prompt! Tomorrow we breathe, and then Sunday (May 2), we return to our regular prompts and features here at Poetic Bloomings.  I (Marie) am bummed that I couldn’t quite make it to the finish line this year. But oh my goodness Walt and I have enjoyed sharing this special month with you! You have all ROCKED it! Thank you for bringing your poetic bloomings to our garden. 🙂
