April is National Poetry Month, and I am celebrating with many other bloggers by writing and sharing poetry. Please check out the hashtag #digipoetry on Twitter - thank you Margaret Simon - to find more poems written by our blogging community.
When I was in a child, especially in high school, I wrote poetry. I think sometimes poetry and that age group seem to be a perfect fit - lots of emotions!
As an adult, writing poetry seems to be harder for me. Putting my thoughts and emotions into words is not as simple as it seems. Putting my words out there for others to read takes courage. Many people like Margaret, Elsie, and Linda to name just a few, make it look so easy. Taking this challenge is a small step for me.
Today I tried a book spine poem. It just happened to also capture my feelings about this challenge.
courage for beginners
as simple as it seems
it only looks easy
