It’s April, fool – which is to say, it’s the first day of National Poetry Month. No joke. Get excited.
I plan on celebrating poetry by writing a poem every day this month. (I get antsy just thinking about it, but it’s 2009: think BIG.) If you like, you can participate in the Poem a Day Challenge which sounds quite spiffy and challenging. Check out Robert Brewer’s Poetic Asides for more info on that contest.
Regardless of what route you take, do something to celebrate your love of the word. Call your friends and recite poems as voice messages. Write blues stanzas on your friends’ facebook walls. Or – just read a poem every day. There’s so many ways to join in.
So, what are you going to do?
