I'm so  excited!!  :running  My poem, "Easter Butterfly," is in the April issue of Highlights! :butterflycolorful

The poem originally included the symbolic connection between the emerging butterfly and Christ's resurrection, but that part got taken out and put in a side bar instead.

I want to express my huge gratitude to Vijaya who played an important role in this good news.   :thankyou

Congratulations, Ev!
I'd also like to acknowledge the wonderful Vijaya who so selflessly helps her fellow book creators in very many ways.
Best wishes to you both. X

Thank you, Laurel, Robin, and Julie!  :flowers2

I wanted to mention I discovered BlueBoarder Sara Matson is also in the April issue. She wrote a wonderful article about a girl who grows garden produce for the homeless. Congratulations to you, Sara, if you should happen to be reading this thread.  :star2

Congratulations! I enjoyed your poem. My own poem, "How High Is The Sky,"  is in the same issue (with less real estate than yours). It's always a great feeling to be published in Highlights.

Congratulations, Robert!!  :yay What fun to have so many Blueboarders in the same issue.

I like your poem very much.  It's a very clever question you pose in it.

And thank you, Mindy, for providing the butterflies!!
