I think that I shall never see...
a poem lovely as a tree. ~Joyce Kilmer
And that's probably true. But that doesn't mean we can't give it a try.
With carefully chosen words, a poem can describe, convey and evoke in a way that no other form can. The truth that it reveals is greater than the sum of its parts.
April is National Poetry Month, a celebration of the profound power of the written word, and the wonderful work of many talented people in our communities who write it. Are you a poet? Do you know?
It's time to find out. As it happens, we've all been issued a poetic licence...and this is the week to use it. April 22nd is Earth Day. What could possibly be more thought-provoking than this blue green planet herself?
