April is National Poetry Month

Happy National Poetry Month! If you missed April’s meeting, you missed a great presentation on National Poetry Month and some readings by Terry Allen and other members of CCMWG along with a brief discussion following. Fear not. You still have the chance to contribute! One of my favorite quotes from poetry is by Mary Oliver:
“Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”

This quote moves me as a writer and as a human being. What is your favorite poet, poem, or poetry quote? Please feel free to share! Meanwhile, Deb will be assembling a list of the poets read yesterday and send that in a separate email. Enjoy the balmy temps!
