MARTIN: We've been celebrating National Poetry Month by hearing your poetic tweets. Today we hear a tweet from Jessica Mogis. Jessica is a Montessori school teacher and recording studio manager in Omaha, Nebraska.

Now, remember, these are short, only 140 characters each, so here is a tweet by Jessica Mogis.

JESSICA MOGIS: Piecing the confetti of life's bowl from birth, my daughter. Sky shattered in her hand, she gathers the shell of a robin's egg.

MARTIN: And we know that went by pretty fast, so let's hear it again.

MOGIS: Piecing the confetti of life's bowl from birth, my daughter. Sky shattered in her hand, she gathers the shell of a robin's egg.
