 Day 29 – Poem in Your Pocket Day for “30 poems in 30 days” for #NationalPoetryMonth

Today is “National Poem in Your Pocket Day.”  Fun stuff and we will be celebrating it by choosing a poem and carrying it with you today and sharing it with others any way you wish.

And I think it would be AWESOME if the poem you choose is one that YOU wrote! But, any poem is just fine. Or perhaps you will write a new one just for today.

One of the easiest ways is via social media using this hash-tag: #pocketpoem. So, I think you should pick one of your own original poems or find a poem you like . . . you can even make copies of it to hand out or just one copy that you carry around all day and hopefully share with others.

I’d like to share a poem about this day written by one of our regular participants in my April Poetry Month Challenge. It’s great little poem and she has given me permission to share it in the past so I’m assuming she is still good with it:


Poem in Your Pocket Day

Take some time on this very special day
To find a favorite poem for a fun holiday
It may be one that makes you laugh or smile
Or even one that makes you think a while

It can be one you've written yourself
Or one you find upon a Library shelf
Just keep it with you throughout the day
Then share with those who come your way.

So, that’s pretty much it for today – Enjoy!!!!

Here’s a link from the “National Poetry Month” website all about “Poem in Your Pocket Day”
