Haiku Friday #31 - A Little Linky-Love

Today I will share
information I have found
in the Blogsphere

hoping that some of
it will be of interest
to my visitors ;--)

* * * * *

When you click upon
the graphic below you'll find
poems I've composed

within posts this month
other than Haiku ... these rhyme
with a clear 'meter' ...

April is the month
set aside to acknowledge
poetry ... Haiku

and all other kinds.
Poets dot org suggests ... 'put
poems in pockets'

as a way to bring
attention to poetry.

find the source and more
ideas you might enjoy ...
several more are here.

Did you know there is
a new malady named BADD?
According to Phyl ...

Blogger Attention
Deficit Disorder
be affecting YOU

or someone you know.
Then at Mama Zen's I learned
about this new meme.

started by Sheila
who asks others to publish
'green' dreams on their blogs.

* * * * *

Amy of Memoirs
of a Mommy
started this
link-love idea!

Visit her and read
all about it ... then share the
button with your friends.

I have more but I'll
save some for another day
because I know you're

eager to move on
and read other's Haiku posts
but before you go

take a moment to
leave a comment and perhaps
you might like to read

Volume 32
'Musings of my Mind' and more
links of interest ;--)

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

For a Mr. Linky to other Haiku Fridays
go to A Mommy Story or
Playgroups are no Place for Children.

To see more previous Haikus,
click on the Haiku Friday label below this post
or in the sidebar under About Me.

Great 'ku! Happy Poetry Month!

Marylin said...

Wow a big list! I'll have a browe this evening :)

Anonymous said...

That's a lot of stuff to get through, but I will!! :D Thanks for putting this together. :D

Joyce said...

Good Morning, Storyteller,
When I get home this afternoon, I hope to check out some of the links you posted. The poetry links sound especially interesting. :)

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Thank you for all your encouraging and fun comments on my blog. <3

storyteller said...

Kathryn – Thanks and you’re quite welcome ;--)

Tempest Knight – I appreciate your visit and the link back to your blog. I’ll check it out soon. I hope you find these links worth your time ;--)

Wright – Yea for poetry!!!

Marylin – It helps to be ‘happily retired’ with lots of ‘discretionary time’ … I’m happy to share.

Secret Agent Mama – You’re welcome … but only check out what seems interesting to you and leave the rest. I tried to include ‘variety’ but it’s a bit much … especially when taken with my 2nd Haiku at Sacred Ruminations. LOL

Joyce – You’re quite welcome. I always enjoy your posts. Ah … there’s lots going on at that poetry site, so be forewarned ;--)

Thanks to each of you for stopping by today and sharing your reactions here. I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and blessings,

Eve said...

I'll have to come back later and explore your links. I'm trying to discipline myself not to spend all my time reading blogs. Time's up for now. This was a great idea. Thanks for "hooking us up."

Izzy, Emmy 'N Alexander said...

as always, you have a great ku!

Cassie said...

Thanks for these links! They'll give me something to do today =)

Anonymous said...

Nice 'ku! I'll have to check out those links this weekend, too.

Scylla said...

Wow, great research! I appreciate all your work!

Anonymous said...

had a little poem in my pocket day - think it's wonderful.

Akelamalu said...

Oh well done and great links.

Anonymous said...

Wow! You're really great at those Haikus! I always get stuck on the last line! :)

Also, thanks for the mention!

storyteller said...

Eve – Me too … but sometimes I just can’t help myself (as you can tell)! LOL

CrackerjacksMO – Thanks. I appreciate the visit and positive feedback ;--)

Cassie – I’m happy to oblige and hope you find these links worth your time. There are more at Sacred Ruminations in my 2nd ‘Ku ;--)

Maggie’s Mind – Thanks … enjoy whenever!

Scylla – I clearly spent too much time the last few days exploring the ‘blogosphere’ but figured I’d put it to good use by sharing today.

Transplanting Me – Me too! I love all kinds of poetry!!!!!

Akelamalu – Thanks for saying so ;--)

Amy – It helps to have spent 34 in the classroom teaching kids and to be happily retired these days with lots of ‘discretionary’ time on my hands. You’re welcome for the ‘mention’ and I hope others pick up on your idea.

It’s lovely to find your comments this morning. Thanks for visiting Small Reflections, and if you like these links (and today’s Haiku) there’s another at Sacred Ruminations with even more links. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and blessings,

awesome links! thanks for sharing them.

Karen said...

Great links, Storyteller--I'm looking forward to exploring them more thoroughly, hopefully in the near future (though Nathan is now sick and the in-laws will be arriving this evening). Thank you!

Tina Coruth said...


What a great haiku and list of links. I really love that "poem in a pocket" idea.

Have a great weekend!


MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Great kus and links to check out!

Hootin' Anni said...

Happy Friday...
I'm sneaking around blogland for a bit before I take Bud out for his birthday dinner.

Let me tell you here and now...I have BADD ---and bad!!

Betty said...

Hi Virginia,

I'm back from our short trip. I'm trying to visit others today, but I'm so tired I'm having a hard time concentrating. I tried to find the poems you had written but couldn't. Again, I'm sure it's me. As always I like your thought for the day.


storyteller said...

Janet – You’re certainly welcome! Hope you find them worthwhile ;--)

Karen – I’m sorry to hear Nathan’s sick now … especially with relatives arriving shortly. Remember to be good to yourself so YOU stay well.

Tina –Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy the links.

MamaGeek – Thanks so much ;--)

Hootin’ Anni – Appreciate you stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating Bud’s birthday at dinner tonight!

Betty – Welcome Back! Take your time … and remember everything will be here whenever you have time to check things out. There’s no need to rush … especially when you’re tired ;--)
I apologize about the poetry link not working. Thanks for mentioning it here. I just tried … and it didn’t work for me, so I’ll fix it when I finish this response. The poems are ‘embedded’ in a series of posts. If the graphic doesn’t work for you next time, you can click on the label ‘poetry’ at the bottom of any post with a poem and the others will show up.

I appreciate each of you visiting my Haiku Friday today and I hope you find something of interest in the links in this post and/or the ‘companion’ Haiku at Sacred Ruminations. Have a wonderful weekend too.
Hugs and blessings,

Blessedw5mom said...

Wow! Great Haiku and thanks for all the great linky-love!

storyteller said...

Blessedw4mom – I’m happy you found time to visit and enjoyed what you found here. I hope you have a delightful day!
Hugs and blessings,
