I’m not a poet, although I did use to write poems back when I was a teen. For the last day of my tour, I thought I’d share with you a poem I write for a poetry contest here are RRBC in which we had to write a poem that included the words ‘April Showers’ and ‘Is it April Fools.’ I didn’t win, nor did I expect to, but it was fun to try my hand at poetry again after so many years.
Darkened skies, April showers
Pattering against my window pane
Feet sloshing through wet puddles
Blinking droplets from my eyelashes
The smell of damp hair
Plastered to my head
Forgot my umbrella…again
They forecast sun, not rain
Is it April Fools?

Michelle Abbott lives in the UK and hates describing herself in 3rd person. She’s a self-published author who loves to write new adult romance about heroes who begin as the underdog and are protective of their girl. She’s an avid reader of romance, is addicted to coffee and loves wine and chocolate, so yeah, not the most healthy eating and drinking habits 🙂 She spends way too much time online when she should be writing. She collects teddy bears and occasionally knits a couple of rows on a sweater she started years ago, which she may eventually finish in time to wear for her funeral.
