I didn't have time (I know - a very lame excuse) to do a poem a day in April, but a poem a day in May is working out much better, maybe because it rhymes. Here it is May 6, and I am going strong, with another poem in my future, and the thought of 31 new poems to continue revising for the rest of the year when I wake up on June 1.
Here's a sample of what I have been up to - very rough, and it will be removed in the next few days. If you did not get a chance to do a poem a day in April, consider a poem a day in June or July!
Like Anne Sexton, the business of words often keeps me awake. My favorite tulip? Queen of the Night. My books include The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception & Reckless Lovely. I also wrote a book of 366 writing prompts, one for every day of the year, with Kelli Russell Agodon: The Daily Poet. I edit Crab Creek Review and teach at Bellevue College.
