‘April Fool’s Day, Laughter and Tears’ by Christine Bialczak and Goff James

Tricks for family
Laughter is safe but silly
Make a memory

CB

Kissing a tiger
There’s no fool like an old fool
Eaten for dinner

GJ

Resisting the fun
found in childhood innocence
makes choices real

CB

One grows up too soon
So many tears of sorrow
Joy filled days erased

GJ

Spotlight Haiku – ‘Morning Song’ – A collaborative poem by Liz Gauffreau and Goff James

Heaven blue-winged bright
Silence drifting meanders
Unseen spring feeds clear water

Red-winged blackbird trills
Hushed air stirs water ripples
Autumn whisp’ring glows
