Poetry and Poets

How can we write about, recommend and review poetry, when it's so subjective? How can we learn more as readers, or educate those who don't consider themselves "poetry people?"

30 Days of Poetry Love

Love poetry? Are you a poet? Want to do your part for National Poetry Month April 2015 and spread some poetry love? Then sign up for a Q&A about poetry which will be featured on my blog in honor of #NPM15! You can find the form at the end of every post on my blog IHeartAllStories. A few have responded but I need more. If you’re interested in participating or know someone who might be, tell them about it. Better yet share on FB, Google+ and tweet about it, etc. And remember to use the hashtag #npm15.

-Take every notion, feeling, experience and expectation that you have on poetry and throw it up in the air, just take everything you’ve ever known about it and toss it aside. Not because the boundaries of what makes it so are being broken and not because simple fundamentals and poetic structures are being altered, no that’s not it at all. Simply take a deep breath, relax and remember that nothing is off limits, nothing is too right or too wrong or completely outside the box(pun totally intended). So untie that bow, put your hand on the corner and the book and take in that fresh page aroma and all the splendid “flavors” that is poetry.

I've just released a second book.  This is a short festive poem for Children entitled "A Hungry Monster for Christmas" .  One to read to them on Christmas Eve maybe (and hope the monster doesn't scare them!)
