Sneak Peak at April

My friend, Sue, of Sue’s Nook, has informed me that April is National Poetry Month and she has challenged me to write more poetry during the month of April.  I told her that I haven’t written much poetry in years, and that I’ve never written poetry unless I was inspired or creating my own greeting card (that is, until last Thursday’s blog post).

I was discussing this with my oldest son who then suggested that I read more poetry, which I have not done in years.  That got me to thinking about the fact that I am completely unfamiliar with modern poets and their poetry, aside from Sue’s.

Therefore, just before writing this post, I spent about an hour reading some poetry by Maya Angelou, Margaret Atwood, John Ashberry (whose poetry I didn’t really care for), and Wendell Berry.  I am intrigued and will continue to explore modern poets and poetry over the next few days of March, and I will try to create some good poetry to share here on my blog during the month of April.

Sue also shared the following information and links with me:

Writer’s Digest will have daily prompts during the month of April  http://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/2016-april-pad-challenge-guidelines
