|Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of National Poetry Month|
Hello and welcome to the Focused on Story blog!
According to the poets.org website, "Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters."
The month has inspired me to get back to writing poetry. At least scribbling my deep, inner thoughts on paper or maybe a journal. How about you?
Just for fun, I made up this image-A Poem from my Mom
A Spring Poem--by my mother every spring!
"Spring has sprung.
This grass is riz.
I wonder where the flowers iz."
Okay, granted it's kinda corny and fun, but I delight in remembering her with her blue eyes sparkling as she recited it.
Let me introduce you to a real poet, my friend Sue Werner.
PLEASE NOTE: As I understand it, Blogger will no longer be sending emails from bloggers to their subscribers to notify them when a new blog article has been posted. I post every Wednesday on this blog, so if you don't get a notification from me, it's not because I have not posted. Check-in on Wednesdays. I will also use Instagram and Facebook to announce new posts. (If I can figure out IG soon!!!)
