I must say I follow a lot of poets on Facebook.
This month is National Poetry Month and one of the things is to do 30 poems for 30 days, also called NaPoWrimo. I see a lot of the posts on Facebook and I am humbled.
I know tomorrow I will be wowed again by the Portland Poetry Team Semi-Finals. I honestly think the team is talented enough to qualify for the National Poetry Slam final stage.
So if you can take the standing room or get there early and be at Local Sprouts at 7pm tomorrow, if you can’t make it tomorrow then next week Tuesday, April 10th. It is likely to be epic.
Poets humble me
with their words, their spirit
their generosity in words and love.
Poets excite me
with the theatrics, with their honesty, or just simple wordplay.
I am happy to be a fan of and reader besides such amazing artists.
