Resolutions Part 2 or Happy National Poetry Month

Happy National Poetry Month!

Another of my resolutions for 2014 was to read more poetry.  I have been continuing to read poetry here and there, but have been reading just a small portion of authors including Mary Oliver, Rumi, Rainer Maria Rilke, e.e. Cummings, & Elizabeth Bishop (mostly as this is what I have around the house).

In an effort to help me make it through some more authors I will be sharing a poem each day for the month of April over on my Facebook account.  Today’s poem was one of my favorites by Mary Oliver entitled North Country which I shared with you before here.  So feel free to check Facebook daily for a new poem.  And feel free to join me in this quest and flood Facebook with poetry!

I have been writing just a tiny bit of my own.  Sadly, mostly in bed as I’m trying to fall asleep where I don’t manage to remember it the next day or bother to write it down.  But it is my goal to share a poem of mine with you by the end of the month… So long as I don’t chicken out!
