April is National Poetry Month. Anyone doing something special? If not, why not? I am writing poetry, of course. Hopefully every day, but let’s be realistic. I’ll also have some special posts that coordinate with Upper Rubber Boot’s month-long Couplets: a multi-author poetry blog tour. Please visit their site for updates throughout the month of April. You can also follow it on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads.
If you’re looking for simple ways to celebrate here are a few from the Poets.org site. If you have your own, I’d love to hear about it.
- Select a poem you love, carry it with you and share it.
- Memorize a poem.
- Watch a poetry movie.
- Visit a poetry landmark.
- Put a poem on the pavement in chalk.
