March, a time for four leaf clovers, meetings, St. Patty's Day and a March challenge!

March is here! How did the February challenge go? Feel free to post your poem, or work that you would like to share.
This month let us go traditional with the Limerick challenge--express yourself, challenge your witty side. Limericks can be funny, a bit cheeky even. Have you written a limerick before? Remember, delving into new poetic form allows us to work on our word choices and stretch beyond our comfort zone. While we may be most comfy in the realm of free verse--what treasures may evolve from attempting the different forms that have continued through the ages.
Spring, Spring, what does it bring? News about our first meeting and our the excitement is building for our launch party for out 10th Anniversary Anthology. 10 Years of KC Metropolitan Verse. Let's make this a party to remember!
" kcmetroverse meets for the first time in 2016! second Sunday 2-4pm at Pat's house. Our meeting will be read, write, read!  bring poetry from your fav or just a poet you wish to share with the group.
