Draw a Bird Day, 02011

Yesterday was Draw a Bird Day . This is a "holiday" that I didn't know about until yesterday evening. Still, I participated. Here's my bird: I've titled this one Awkward, Undaunted . ----- Also, I know it's been a long time since I've posted a poem. [Not that anyone's noticed.] There are poems waiting. I've just been busy not typing them up. A shame too, considering that we're now deep into National Poetry Month . I promise that I'll resume posting poems by the end of the month.
