Did you know April is National Poetry month?
You may have heard the rumors.
The celebration of lyrical words was established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996 to heighten the public’s awareness of the fine art.
This tidbit of knowledge probably already has you feeling a smidgen taller.
Poetry was never my strong point. It’s something I fail to put into practice enough that I may truly excel. The rhythm of words, that was my sister’s pursuit—Kristi’s thing. She had a binder where she kept all her treasures of metered verses. Some she was working on, some perfected, some still a work-in-progress.
If this is your first stops by the blog, then you may not know my sister left the physical world over a decade ago. A stack of unfinished poems was one of the things she left behind.
In honor of April’s National Poetry Month I’m going to share one of them with you today.
My sister wrote this as a college project back in the 1990’s. She is the “Kristi” in Debra Kristi, and my muse—the reason I finally took writing serious. Together we are a team.
For more poetry to reach any range of emotion, click your heels together and be swept over to any or all of the following:
Do you have a poet’s heart thrumming within you? Got any lyrical words you’d like to share here today? We’d love to hear them!
Thanks for stopping by! I truly appreciate your support.
Until next time, immortally yours.
