Month of Poetry (Week 1)

April 9th, 2017

April is National Poetry Month AND National Poetry Writing Month. In honor of this I’m writing a poem a day and reading at least three poems a day, then posting them here. It’s been only one week and it already feels so good to be back in the world of beautiful beautiful words. It is hard though, I haven’t written in a couple months and trying to write again feels rusty and difficult and frustrating. Poetry┬áI love you forever, despite how hard you make me work.

This month is less about producing really solid poetry and more about quantity. A poem a day is a lot but my guess is there will be definite improvement as the month continues. This month will be raw and honest and basically stream-of-consciousness, both in regards to the poetry I write, the things I have to say in each post, and the poems I choose to read.
