April 1

(poem was here)

National Poetry Month = We Are All Our Own Full Moons

As I've done for the past 10 years (?!), I'm participating in NaPoWriMo, which was started by Maureen Thorson and it means we all write a poem a day. I post them here. Then I pull them down to edit them. Every year, I SWEAR I won't do this. And this year, I have more than enough excuses to give this up, but I won't. Again, these are not finished pieces. They are DRAFTS. BABIES. INSANE PUPPIES. New and newly crafted, the poems of April are the seeds for summer's revision. I hope you all join me in celebrating the process by writing a poem a day. I will try my best (just like in life) to not give up.
