Poetry Month Begins
As I said, every month is poetry month, but I edit an online poetry magazine so I have to feel a little pressure. There is a lot to cover out there, and I want to be a voice along with other voices that draw people into poetry. It is officially Poetry Month, after all.
I arranged a good start to Poetry Month at Eye on Life with two regular contributors, H. E. Mantel and Donal Mahoney. I hope you’ll stop by and read their work as well as the many other fine poets we are privileged to have published. I hope also that you’ll be inspired to attend a poetry event or two this month – there will be plenty of them – and that you will have an experience that makes you want to attend a reading or an open mic night once in a while, or perhaps take in a slam.
Poetry is a cartography of the human emotional landscape. It may just help you find out where you are.
