April is National Poetry Month. To celebrate I will write and a post a poem day.
National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. We hope to increase the visibility and availability of poetry in popular culture while acknowledging and celebrating poetry’s ability to sustain itself in the many places where it is practiced and appreciated.
The poems that I post will be largely unedited and just for fun. With out further ado- here is a poem from April 1st
last all night long
roaming fingers –
over a cliff
drift to sleep
– Katherine Orr
