Drop Everything and Read... THIS POEM

 Hello and Happy National Poetry Month! Truly, is there anything better than April? Here's "April" as it appears in THIS POEM IS A NEST.


...and here's my current favorite poem:

ars pasifika by Craig Santos Perez

Just nine lines, and full of wonder and wordplay, it begins...

when the tide

of silence

rises

say "ocean"


--- read the rest here.

And of course you are always invited to join me at ArtSpeak, where this year I am writing poems inspired by art and the FOUR SEASONS. Here's the latest installment. Thank you so much for reading!
