Happy Friday Poets!!

  Easter is suppose to be a time of celebration; a fun time. A time of  taking part in traditions with family. A magical time for children. Over the years though, it has become commercially important… like most other holidays. Many different religions often take part in the commercialization of Easter (chocolate bunnies and eggs!!) and leave out the religious aspect of the holiday. Many don’t celebrate it in any form.

 For this weeks prompt, I would like you to write a poem about the customs you do or do not partake in during Easter. Do you travel or stay home? Do you dye eggs and play games with your children… or cook up a giant feast? Or maybe you do nothing at all! Tell us how you and your family will spend this Easter.

    The new white gloves, the new white bonnets, the spanking new
    white Easter shoes. I showed it as I will be when I get old(er).
    And then combined it with Robert’s Day One of April PAD!
