National Poetry Month Day 5: April 5, 2020

Hi Everyone! Today’s poem-a-day challenge word was “pollen,” which I found to be extremely challenging. There are VERY few words rhyme with pollen! This was a tough one. But I was grateful for the challenge because, to me, creating a poem is like working on a brain puzzle and playing with words is one of my most favorite things to do. I also enjoyed this one because the word “pollen” didn’t automatically make me think of all things coronavirus, and honestly, I was ready for a break from it. I can’t guarantee I won’t go back there (as I have no idea what words lie ahead of me!) but it was nice, for a moment, to think of happy, simpler things, like a little girl’s first crush. Please enjoy…
