National Poetry Month
April 7, 2011 § 2 Comments
April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate this event I’ve decided to share some of my favorite poems and why. I also hope to share some of my own poetry as well. I feel a connection to poetry because of the mystery behind each poem. You can analyze a poem but it can mean different things to different people. Writing poetry isn’t easy. It takes patience and planning and even then sometimes you don’t always say what you really want to say. For me, writing poetry is an exercise in language and expression. It challenges me to reach deep within myself and to look for the meaning to my life and experience in different ways. As difficult as it can be to understand poetry at times, maybe this month people will reconnect with poets of old or even become poets themselves.
