Poetry Month

April is celebrated (not by all!) as National Poetry Month since the Academy of American Poets started

My myriad interests and lack of focus will prevent a poem-a-day feature that many sites are hosting for the month, but here is a quote that signifies the importance of poetry in my life.

Poetry exists not to simplify our sense of life and death but to absorb its complexities and mixed tones. - W. S. Di Piero
