First Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco was at my local library (BIG thanks to the Bangor Public Library for this event) tonight. He was very friendly and approachable.  I gave him a signed copy of my book and the 2015 National Poetry month poster.

Richard talked about he started his career off as an engineer and learned to love language because of it.  He said that poems were design problems.
He also talked about how poems were memories.

Richard signed all my books “…..To a fellow Maine poet”

He lives in Bethel, Maine 🙂

Poetry prompt for today:  write a poem about a memory
