How on earth did I forget this?
I have been so busy with being and working – that I missed that National Poetry Month is here. A month long celebration of poems, poetics and poets.
“National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. We hope to increase the visibility and availability of poetry in popular culture while acknowledging and celebrating poetry’s ability to sustain itself in the many places where it is practiced and appreciated.”
I had better get cracking and write some poems now!
