April 24 is the day to celebrate poetry by carrying a poem in your pocket.
For me, it is a chance to combine two of my favourite past-times — poetry and upcycling. To frame your poem, you can upcycle a few commonplace items: a piece of paper such as a flyer with print on one side; a brown paper bag; a small section of a cereal or matzo box; part of a greeting card.
Once you select a home for this poem, you can select a favourite poem to copy onto this surface. Then, you are set to place a poem in your pocket tomorrow as you start the day.

You, also, could write a poem of your own to carry in your pocket or to gift to someone else.
For this special day, I was inspired by a recent visit to the shores of Lake Huron where I took a photo of the horizon, now posted at MyNews. I have written a haiku inspired by the amazing Great Lake Huron that I would like to share with readers.
Have a great week!
