I almost forgot!! Today is the first day of National Poetry Month. Let’s celebrate!! All are welcome.
Please sit… yes, please do,
and, if you’re able do more than read,
sink between each word as you might sink
into the cushions of a favorite sofa,
douse your thoughts with this ink,
listening to that letter’s purr
and this letter’s growl.
Dragons breathe here,
parading, with unicorns and gremlins,
through meadows festooned
with golden flowers,
around trees, grim with age and thought,
over hills that cushion the sun’s
tumble into the promises
of tomorrow and tomorrow.
