Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day

Poem in your pocket day

It’s April 18th, Poem in Your Pocket Day. Now, I would’ve posted this past Monday during my regular blog schedule. But as of then, I’d yet to choose what poem to share. It kind of worked out in the en to post of the day of.

Last year I chose “Lyric” by Khaled Mattawa as the poem to carry in my pocket. This year I’m sharing “Mosquito” by Jane Hirshfield.:

So is that a poem in your pocket or are you happy to see me? What poem are you carrying in your pocket?
