Welcome to the largest collaborative poem on the internet. The Audubon Society has designated 2018 as the Year of the Bird (does this come as a surprise to anyone?). Plan to share one poem or many in the world’s largest collaborative poem — bird poems are welcome! 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:
its ghostly cry falls from the sky, invisible skylark — Ampū (? – ?)
or to any of the poems posted in the Comment box, or you can even start a new thread. You may participate as often as you like. All we ask is that you respond to the theme of birds.
