A Brief Intro to Natural Captures// DIY Pocket Poem

I must say that my photography has increased a LOT these days. Mainly because I’m on vacation.

And I have too many favourite pictures to put into separate posts, one by one, all with detailed and organized notes and summaries. I mean, who even reads all that?

So here I am, introducing to you Natural Captures, a two-part photo series of unedited, original snaps of nature and wildlife.

This series will take place any two randomly selected days in May. Probably because I don’t stick to blogging plans very much.

Here’s what the featured image will look like:

Look at that little chickadee!!

Now that that’s done, let’s move on to the more interesting bit.


Poem in Your Pocket Day

Every April, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and on Twitter using the hashtag #pocketpoem.

If you’re a resident of Charlottesville, Virginia, you probably experience this every year. If you aren’t… Maybe not. Either way, Poem in Your Pocket Day is an awesome way to share your favourite poems or even poems of your own with fellow poetry lovers.

If your place doesn’t have this event in common, it is kind of weird to go around the streets handing out poems to every person you see.

But WordPress is a nice little community of quite a lot of friendly bloggers, and they don’t mind if you poke around their comments and leave them a nice little poem.

That’s what you can do. Stick around some blogs this 27th, copy/paste one of your favourite poems and leave them in the comments to make a blogger’s day. Sounds good? Then do it!

You can also enter poetry contests like this one to celebrate!

Another fun way is to write down some of your favourite poems on little bits of paper, or even design some notecards and print them out to write on and distribute them among family and friends.

Some of my notecards

A thing I did was design some cards and type out the poem before printing it. You can get creative with that.

Not the best picture, but it’s fine.

I think Poem in Your Pocket Day is going to be amazing! I’d love to share some of my favourite poems with you. If I’m familiar with your blog, I’ll be there to leave a poem. If I’m not, do comment below and leave a link, and I’ll come by!


Now on to you.

How will YOU celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day?
(Will you, even?)
How about Natural Captures? Are you looking forward to it?

  1. Drop a pebble in the water,
    And it’s ripples reach out far;
    And the sunbeams dancing on them
    May reflect them to a star.

    Give a smile to someone passing,
    Threeby making his morning glad;
    It may greet you in the evening
    When your own heart may be sad.

    Do a deed of simple kindness;
    Though its end you may not see,
    It may reach like widening ripples,
    Down a long eternity.
