National Poetry Writing Month

NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.
NaPoWriMo, founded in 2003, when poet Maureen Thorson decided to take up the challenge. She modeled this  after NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Ms. Thorson has challenged other  poets, like herself,  to join in on the fun. And since it exists, the participants in NaPoWriMo  have grown every year, and many writers’ organizations, local, national and even International, have joined NaPoWriMo activities.
I'm not participating this year. However, I love to write poetry and plan to add a few poems throughout the month to celebrate.  I hope you will enjoy my poetry.

Do You Believe 
Do you believe the sweet drops of rain
 on a hot summer day for grain
Are the tears of heaven’s fears
Throughout our industrial years

What of the wind, when it blows
That brings snows that froze nose
Did you know, they’re the results
Of butterfly's wings  in Ming,

Have you heard, scientist say,
the stars above  are planets uninhabited
while others believe
Adam waits to claim his Eve
it's all in the equating
as some do deceive

History states, that the Mayan believe
 the Sun and Moon were star-crossed lovers
Cursed to never retrieve what was lost
Under the covers

Are there monsters in the lake
Like Loch ness giving quake
Or Big foot in the woods
Scaring  fools for good
And what of that thing
 you call your heart
 That’s tearing us  apart

See that dove
Flying high  above
Love soars, why shove it away
You’ll believe one day
