National Poetry Month

Happy National Poetry Month!

Tonight I went to a poetry reading by Charles Simic at RiverRun Bookstore.  What a great way to kick off the month!

After the reading, I got my book signed. His own pen ran out of ink in the middle of his first name, so I gave him my pen.  When he tried to return it, I told him to keep it (there was a long line after me after all).  As an exchange, he gave me his old pen.  Perhaps it will bring me some good writing mojo.

In honor of the month, I'm going to challenge myself to write 5 new poems.
I started one last month that I haven't finished yet.  If I finish that one, I'll count it towards the 5.

I will also try to read even more poetry.  Good times!
