A Solitary Spring: Poetry from the Pandemic

It's National Poetry Month! In the Spring of 2020, I began writing a series of poems on my @urbansiren creative writing page on Instagram inspired by my monthly zodiacal season writing challenges and this is a compilation of some of the poems from my collection "A Solitary Spring." Spurred by my writing prompts for Taurus season, I created these free flowing poems and I'm so honored to share them with you in their first form as a compilation here. Watch the picture book and feel free to download your copy as a gift from me to say "Thank You!" for being here and for your incredible support of my creative projects. These poems reflect the vast landscape of feelings that the pandemic spurred in my soul. If they speak to your soul too, I'm honored.  

To celebrate National Poetry Month this April, enjoy my writing prompts which I’m hosting on my @urbansiren creative writing page on Instagram. You may use these prompts in any way you like. They are perfect for poetry or creative writing, Haiku and any prompts you might like to use for Tarot or divination. These are here to get your creative juices flowing. There are no rules or fixed ways to use the prompts: they are up for your creative interpretation to use in any way you like. You can use each prompt for each date or you may combine prompts for larger pieces of work. The challenge is to stay with it through National Poetry Month (or for as long as you like!) to create a habit of writing every day in some form. Feel free to download these prompts and please tag me on social media @urbansiren or send me your creative work so I can celebrate the creative process with you!
