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?

Be inspired.
