April A-Z theme reveal: Verses from vintage visages

Today is Theme Reveal Day for the annual A to Z Blogging Challenge. April also brings National Poetry Month. So here we go –

April’s Faces

The month of A to Z, it looms,
So bloggers fill with ink their plumes.
And poets pen a verse a day
For NaPoWriMo till it’s May.

My April inspiration lands
From photos passed through countless hands.
Each day, a vintage image might
Bring lines of dread or sheer delight.

So stick around. Come back and share
The month-long poesy, if you dare.
For life’s revealed in full array,
Though photos fade to shades of gray.
