April has come and gone, taking with it my favorite creative writing project: a poem a day for National Poetry Month. For the second year in a row, I took to Instagram and shared a poem (allllllmost– okay barely- I actually finished yesterday!) every day. Unlike last year, I created a visual theme. I used photos from Unsplash for the backgrounds and a font and doodle template from Canva. I wanted the poems to look a little more polished and uniform than the handwritten images I had going on last year. My handwriting isn’t great and I’m definitely missing making some sort of visual art these days. Just like last year though, most poems were made just for this project, which is why I started after April and ended halfway through May.
Since we’re already in May and since I love this project so much (plus the feedback has been AWESOME! Thanks for that pals!) I’m going to keep at it. Stay tuned for more poetry!
Here are ten of my most liked poems from the project, if you’d like to see all 30 follow me here: @blisters_before_misters.
