Looking forward to National Poetry Month

It’s less than a month away now. Time to start looking for my poetry hat. Every April, poets at The Waters meet (in the Sunset Beach forum) to write a poem a day for 30 days. A great poetic workout. Some of the results are duds. Some merit revision. And more than a few are eventually published online or in print journals. Even a couple of good ones make the whole month worth the effort.
