April is Poetry Month, a month-long celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996.
As a writer of literary fiction, I am a poetry fan, although I am far from knowledgeable. Still, for inspiration I will often open a book of poems and read the work aloud, hoping to stimulate my creativity.
In honor of poetry month, most days I will grab a book of poetry off the shelf and shine the spotligh
t on it here. I’ve got an eclectic collection, many by friends and acquaintances, so you may discover someone new in the process.
