I have been SO BUSY doing poetic things this month, I have forgotten to let you guys know what *I* am doing
- Going to a poetry slam later this week, not sure what I will read yet. (I’ll let you know how it goes)
- I have been posting a poetry prompt EVERY DAY over at Poetry Pasta (www.poetrypasta.wordpress.com)
- An unexpected call from a friend and poet, Ed 🙂 Got a book of his poetry from years ago. Gave him a copy of …details…
- Discovered a poet, Scott Thomas Outlar on Youtube 🙂
- Participating in the 30 for 30 contest (by Mike Maggio)

This is the first year I have not ordered a National Poetry month in time for April, so I just did. If it’s still available, it says it will take 4-6 weeks to get here.
A CHALLENGE TO MYSELF:
Write 1 poem or haiku every day in April based on poetry prompts you guys send me 🙂
Neil Hilborn poetry 🙂
I have not updated this page with any new poetry since summer of last year.
I am still paying poetic attention. It’s Black History month, read some Maya Angelou or Langston Hughes. There might be posts here for Women’s History month (that it is in MARCH does not escape me).
Check out the Poetry Pasta Facebook page for calls for submissions, poetry and writing cartoons, articles and pictures.You are always welcome to post your poems on our FB page
Stay tuned … 🙂
I did not do a poetry prompt last week as it was birthday and was in high demand at places WITHOUT WI-FI. First world problems.
Poetry Prompt: Summer 🙂
