April is National Poetry Month and as always I try to attend as many poetry readings as I possibly can. When I taught high school I would also attend conferences and workshops for educators and poets. I have so many wonderful memories of those days.
Another great activity this month is Poem in Your Pocket Day 2019 is on April 18 and is part of National Poetry Month. On this day, select a poem, carry it with you, and share it with others at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, street corners, and on social media using the hashtag #pocketpoem.
I would like to invite WordPress Poet/bloggers to post a Poem a Day for the entire month. We need to get into the rhythm and focus on the things that help us get through difficult times. Poets speak to all issues but most of all as a friend told me once (who happens to be a poet) “Poets are little gods.”
For me, poetry is life and life is poetry. I shared many of my original poems and I am so grateful for your comments and encouragement I have received since I started my blog in 2012.
So let’s get into the rhythm and create some mindful poetry. Happy National Poetry !!!
