Welcome to the largest collaborative poem on the internet. This year’s theme is the Year of Light, as designated by decree of the United Nations. Please add your poem(s) in the Comment box below, ideally at dawn at your location, but any time that you are able. The timeline for this begins at 12:01 A.M. on April 17 on the International Date Line (which is why it seems to have started the day before, for many of us). Your poem(s) can respond to the “seed” poem:
not be taking up his pen?
tonight’s moon— Onitsura (1660 – 1738)
or to any of the poems posted in the Comment box, or you can even start a new thread. All we ask is that you respond to the theme of Light.
