National Poetry Month

April is my favorite month; not because its my birthday month but because all of a sudden people from various outlets are poetry lovers. Some of that love may be real and others may be fake but none the less there is poetry floating everywhere this month.

Instead of focusing on a poem here and there, I am going to focus on the books . . the five in my heart that everyone should read or make reference to this month & instead of giving a whole long paragraph about why you should read it, one word will be enough. Enjoy.

  1. The Moment, the Minutes, the Hours: The Poetry of Jill Scott by Jill Scott: Raw
  2. Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein: Childish (in a good way)
  3. Twenty Poems of Love and Despair by Pablo Neruda: Natural
  4. Broetry by Brian McGakin: Funny
  5. Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry by Billy Collins: Insightful

Now I didn’t add Edgar A Poe, Emily Dickinson, nor e e Cummings because it is only April 7 and I have seen those poems more on my dashboard than I have seen funny cats (that is saying a lot)
