National Poetry Month

We welcome April with the start to National Poetry Month. The last couple of years I missed out on going to some local poetry events and unfortunately this year we’re all shut in so I guess no in person poetry events but that’s not to say we can’t celebrate virtually, right? has Shelter In Poems to help us find comfort in prose plus 30 ways to celebrate National Poetry Month at home or online. I like that.

Or for those of you who enjoy podcasts, how about Poetry Off the Shelf by Poetry Foundation?

If you prefer watching performance poetry, check out Button Poetry’s collections of videos.

And, of course Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit is hosting a year long poetry reading challenge plus she has some other fun links to share.

As you can see by the picture I’m sharing, I took out Good Poems for Hard Times off of my poetry shelf today and look forward to re-visiting with some favorite poems in this book. Let me know if you are planning on reading any poetry this month or share some of your favorite poems.
