All Aboard the Meme Express – Saturday, April 11, 2009

April is National Poetry Month.
Are you participating in the challenge?

Tomorrow is Easter, known to Christians as Resurrection Sunday,the high holy day commemorating the crux of the Christian faith, the resurrection of Jesus.

Easter also marks the emergence of spring, as new life appears in nature everywhere. In many regions, baby animals are born, trees begin budding, and the world becomes green again after the long, dark winter.

To celebrate this occasion, today’s Meme Express prompt offers seven prompt choices.

Pick one of these words
