National Poetry Month

April is officially National Poetry Month. As a poet, I can't let that slide without recognition, now can I? Take a moment sometime this month, when you need a respite from taxes and tedium and read a poem. Maybe you'll find something new over at Author's Den or Amazon. Maybe there is a poetry slam going on in your location. Maybe you just take a moment to sit and try your hand at a poem yourself. However you choose to celebrate, take a moment and make poetry your own!

Poetry

There is a power –
a passion –
in poetry
that allows you
to express the
anger,
pain,
fear,
frustration –
love –
you feel
in your own way.

To put it
on paper
defuses the
timebomb
explosion
you'll only
regret later –

but makes the
moment permanent -
public -
so no one
gets away
with
lies.

(from the Dancing on the Edge collection)

And don't forget to check out the rest of my poetry if you are so inclined.
