National Poetry Month

In honor of April being National Poetry Month, I signed up for a poem-a-day via Poets.org. Each morning a new poem has arrived in my inbox - not a bad way to begin the day! Go here to sign up for yourself.

Admittedly, not everything I've received thus far has tickled my "awe bone," and many poems receive a cursory read before being deleted. The following poems, however, I just can't bring myself to delete.

I hope you enjoy them.

"Alpha Zulu", by Gary Lilley

"Just", by Alan Shapiro

I signed up for it also but so far I'm a little disappointed at what I have been getting. Oh well.

I'm having the same experience! So much for broadening my horizons ... I realize that I'm just NOT a poetry person! I AM glad to know that it's not just me. :)
