Auroras & Blossoms #PoArtMo 2020 – Day 12 – “A World of Sighs” by David Ellis – A Kindku Poem Inspired by “We Wear the Mask” by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Hey there everyone.

I’m participating in PoArtMo (Positive Art Month) throughout the month of June, so you get to read poetry from me every day, just like you did for NaPoWriMo in April!

Want to know more about PoArtMo? It stands for two things: Positive Art Month and Positive Art Moves.

  • Positive Art Month is a month dedicated to positive art. Every June, artists around the world are invited to create and celebrate positive art for 30 days. It can be absolutely anything art related: photography, poetry, short stories, sculptures, drawings, theatre, etc.
  • Positive Art Moves celebrates positivity and inspiration in art all year long.

PoArtMo is open to hobbyist, amateur and professional artists. Artists interested in participating in PoArtMo can do so by heading to this link to find out more, along with submissions opportunities for a PoArtMo Contest and a PoArtMo Anthology too:-

Furthermore, you may have noticed that I am using a new poetry form this month called “The Kindku”. This is a brand new form created by Auroras & Blossoms and you can can find out more about this poetry style here:-

“A World of Sighs”
Eyes tell us stories
Making us tingle, sing, smile
Mouth is sensual
Creating a world of sighs
See instinct arise
Fascination lies beneath
Long to connect deep

- Kindku inspired by “We Wear the Mask” by Paul Laurence Dunbar
