Stuck on Poetry
Here's one way I'm celebrating National Poetry Month. When I was in college, I bought a magnetic poetry calendar for my dorm room. I hung it next to my desk and used it to pass some time, taking breaks from homework and still feeling like I was doing something close to writing.
The calendar is long gone, but I cut off the bottom part and have had it collecting dust in my basement since then. Now, I've dusted it off and hung it on my wall next to my bed. Already, I've created a poem from it. Sometimes all it takes is a little reminder and a few loose words to play with.
Are you doing anything particularly poetic today?
