This year's Kidlithosphere Progressive Poem project started in 2012 by Irene Latham to celebrate April's National Poetry Month with a community of writers. The poem project now led by Margaret Simon has evolved into a Choose-Your-Own-Poem-Adventure Progressive Poem. The fun began with Donna Smith who offered choice options with two different perspectives to continue the poem. Each poet on the list below continued the practice. Today, I am excited to choose one of the options Tara Smith offered.
Sweet violets shimmy, daffodils swayalong the wiregrass path to the lake.
I carry a rucksack of tasty cakes
and a banjo passed down from my gram.
I follow the tracks of deer and raccoon
and echo the call of a wandering loon.
A whispering breeze joins in our song.
and night melts into a rose gold dawn.
Matt Forrest Essenwine are you ready? Envelope please...

Deep into nature's embrace, I fold. (Option A
