National Poetry Writing Month

April is National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo). As I get ever closer to graduation the last thing I want to do is add more to my plate, but I think this is worth it.

While I won’t have enough time to write an epic poem this month, my plan is to memorize one poem from a favorite author as well as write one (decent if not good) poem this month. I think I will be memorizing Sharon Olds poem about the Challenger Shuttle. I often recommend that poem to others so it would be worth it to be able to recite it on demand.

What I don’t have yet is a subject for my own poem. I have a lot of ideas brewing. Maybe I’ll write from the point of view of one of my female dwarves. What draws you to poetry? Are you planning to participate in NaPoWriMo?
