Will see what time allows... Working from home is very tough... for once I think I work harder when working from home...

Marian said...

Soooooo glad to be posting something, anything here in the Garden and even happier to see you all. Hello, friends!!

I too am really struggling with working from home, Bjorn. It is very challenging. Can't imagine being able to join here every day but who knows.

Hope everyone is doing well, staying healthy, staying home and being very cautious. I have been thinking of you all and am sending love around the world to all of you.

So happy to see everyone!!

I will be writing but I'm not posting on my blog regularly, (journaling).

Busy times with homeschooling but I'm sure at some point I'll get the opportunity to blog, link and share in the reading and celebrating of poetry.

Thank you, Kerry and hello to everyone, Toads and garden dwellers. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’“

Jim said...

Thanks for reopening for Poetry Month. It seems good to be with the bunch.

Jenna said...

It's great to be back here. I'm kind of overwhelmed with all the prompts, though! Not sure how much I can actually write, let alone post.

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

Oh darn, linked first at wrong place for Day 2. I guess it doesn't matter, so long as I'm here as well. Susie, hope it was OK to include your photo, with attribution and copyright statement?

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

And I somehow seem to have failed to post an earlier comment here, where I said that this prompt brought back memories – I was that young woman, once upon a time.

Kerry O'Connor said...

Welcome to Day 2 of Play It Again!
It has been a wonderful reunion, and certainly needful in these times. I am so happy to visit in the garden with old friends.

Marian said...

Friends, I'm really busy/stressed with telecommuting for my job and everyone being at home together, so I'll be slow in reading your offerings. Please forgive me and I'm looking forward to down time with poems in this crazy time, xoxo

Ellecee said...

I messed up a it with my Day2 poem, chose the wrong word and my street poem is about walking’, not leaving my mark. I blame it on the angst of these days‼️๐Ÿ™

Ellecee said...

Also a bit frustrated that some of my comments won’t post, please know that I’m with you all seeing and hearing your words❣️❣️๐Ÿ™

Sanaa Rizvi said...

Day two, the tempo is building and I am grateful for the company of poetry and friends!!๐Ÿ’˜

Kerry O'Connor said...

Welcome to Day 3!

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

Day 3 was challenging! Day 4 might be even more so.

Susie Clevenger said...

I actually posted for day 3, but I forgot to change the number...After you read the crazy I wrote you'll understand. :)

Kerry O'Connor said...

Welcome to Day 4!
I don't think a Real Toad linky ever got to 50 links.. the first days of napowrimo have been smashing. Thanks to all who are sharing.

Linda Lee Lyberg said...

Day 4- What a prompt!!

Linda Lee Lyberg said...

Kerry, your word for day 4 -Fern- worked perfect!

Fireblossom said...

Gawd I hate Stein.

Frank J. Tassone said...

Good Morning, Garden Dwellers! It's so great to see so many posts! :)

Sanaa Rizvi said...

Catching up on sleep along the way haha ๐Ÿ’˜ Loved writing to all the prompts, Kerry ๐Ÿ˜ƒ thank you!

Dr. Pearl Ketover Prilik (PKP) said...

HELP!!!! ... I cannot seem to comment on anyone's post. I'm not quite sure my poems are posting.
Why do I need to sing in with google? If I do.. then no one will find me at drpkp.com Hmmmmmmmmmm
HOW DO I SIGN IN????? STAY SAFE EVERYONE! I would love to comment on your poems!!! - don't want anyone thinking I'm a reading hog!!

Dr. Pearl Ketover Prilik (PKP) said...

OH my HELP comment is here... so that's a beginning... Helllloooooo everyone .. lovely to see you ... hope all are safe and well ...

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

Pearl, people don't find you through the sign-in; they find you via the Linky link to your poem. That will still be whatever you put.

(Meanwhile, serendipitous typo – I love the thought that you will 'sing in'.)

Kerry O'Connor said...

Greetings on Day 5! So wonderful to see so many poets have been writing each day and sharing on this forum. As always the garden is a lovely place to be in April.

Dr. Pearl Ketover Prilik (PKP) said...

Hi all... Delighted to be here.. and to have worked out whatever glitches on my end... Hope all are keeping safe ...
