Inspired Challenge: A Poem a Day

April is National Poetry Month! Poetry has been a part of my life for 20 years. I can’t even begin to describe how grateful I am to be able to write poetry and have the privilege of hearing/reading/witnessing others’ poetry. So I am going to take up the challenge of writing a poem a day.

Here’s my first poem of the month:

Poetry probes and reveals
hidden hurts and unheeded hungers.
Poetry connects and heals
seeking souls and kindred strangers.

Poetry inspires,
answering desire
with luscious languages
and voracious voices.

Poetry rejoices.
Poetry renews.
Poetry amuses,
grants sight anew.

Oh Poetry,
I honor thee.

    Thanks, Pam! I probably won’t post all of my poems this month, as some are more personal, but I will definitely write one a day.
