April is National Poetry Month so I’m tackling the Writer’s Digest 2019 April PAD Challenge hosted by Robert Lee Brewer.

hamper creativity & suffer from ubiquity.
I like to follow meaning more:

Let them caper
maybe gather some poppies or flop
on a mossy rock
There might still be some rhyme,
hidden and plain,
some internal parallels like the echoes of a
but I like them to be subtle, soft—
just the gentle ricochet of
sound and thought.
