Visit often and please tell your friends and family to visit. There is still misunderstanding about poetry by some Americans. None the less, we have National Poetry Month, and we have a brief chance to celebrate.
For me, poetry reflects the human condition. Practicing poetry offers me and other poets an opportunity to learn how to live in this world and sometimes even the opportunity to learn how to die. Here is my poem, "April Rain" which was chosen by Kathryn Stripling Byer for inclusion in the anthology, LIGHTS IN THE MOUNTAINS (2003). It was also featured on
YOUR DAILY POEM during April 2012.
