April PAD Challenge: Day 1

April is national poetry month, and is celebrated by a Poem A Day challenge to anyone who loves poetry. I am busy teaching an online class, but will attempt to offer something each day, through the month. Simple short verses, no particular form, but want to stick to the theme of inspiration, especially that of other poets, and writers. Please join me if you like, and leave your URL in the comment sections below. I will try to visit, read, and comment. The theme is simply my choice, and does not have to be yours.

Day 1:  Wind

Wind gently kisses skin,
taking with it bits of pain
no longer needed
for me to continue.

Elizabeth Crawford 4/1/2017

Footnotes: This was inspired by something I read, yesterday, on another poet’s blog.

    Elizabeth, I have just finished writing the piece for your “journey.” I hope I can write with you this month. I will return. Do I sound like McArthur?
