Welcome to the world’s largest annual collaborative poem. This year our seed poem honors the late Bill Pauly. Please add your poem(s) in the Reply Box below, ideally at dawn at your location, but any time that you are able. The timeline for this begins at 12:01 A.M. on April 17 on the International Date Line (which is why it seems to have started the day before, for many of us). Your poem(s) may respond to the “seed” poem:
snowmelt . . .
the earth on her knees— Bill Pauly (Harold G. Henderson Haiku Contest, 1991)
or to any of the posted poems, and you can even start a new thread. You may participate as often as you like. All we ask is that you respond to the theme at hand.
