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!
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.
