Poem A Day Challenge: April 18-20

Standard

The poems just keep coming for the 2015 April Poem A Day Challenge! Just when I thought the prompts were challenging enough, April 18th happens. I’m still in awe of the difficulty level, but also of the responses the prompt incited from fellow poets. If you haven’t stopped by Poetic Asides this month, I highly recommend visiting the April 18th comments for some amazing poems, (click on the link below).
