Poetweet Project Launched: First Spring Tweets Poem for May

The Poetweet Project is on its way!  Thanks to all who joined me to launch
the project.  A small but enthusiastic crowd gathered at the foot of Daffodil Hill in beautiful Lakeview Cemetery this past Saturday morning (May 4) to help me get this fun project out of the ground and blooming. 

See some photos from the day below and here's the first poem inspired by tweets from those who attended the event.  Send your spring tweets - impressions of the season, your yard, what spring means to you, etc., to #htspoetweet.  I'll make poems so long as there are tweets to inspire me.


All around the cemetery,
stone monuments to temporality.
And yet, fresh green and pink pop
from cherry, dogwood, Cleveland Pear.
Venerable magnolias bloom, impossibly again.
Chipmunks vault the marble markers
and woodpeckers churr the bugs
from old trees to feed new young. 
Kathleen Cerveny, Lakeview Cemetery
