I have been very busy “offline”. I have been writing, revising, gathering, and compiling. I’ve been reading, learning, stretching myself in ways I never imagined. I also feel I have been neglecting some of my longtime, faithful readers – so today before I rush out the door to share my latest poetry with our local writers’ group, I decided to open a journal (this one from January/February) and randomly share a previously unpublished page…which might possibly pass as a poem. Or not…you be the judge.
Either way, nothing will stop my pen from scrawling out words disguised as poetry, or the joy I derive thereof!
Combining National Poetry Month and A spontaneous Random Journal Day moment I give you one, For My Brethren…and I hope it blesses all who do read. Unedited, from the page. Crazy I am, I know- but I hope you see the seed in it for your own poetry garden! Don’t fear the pen and page…plant a seed or two today.

I am pretty excited that it is April 1 and that is no joke! Let the games begin, or more accurately, let the poetry flow. Because if you are a poet, a wanna-be-poet, a writer who wants to work their writerly muscles in new ways, or someone who loves poetry, this is a magical month for you. It’s National Poetry Month and National Poetry Writing Month and let me tell you why you want to know.
First, a confession…

Dear Pillar of Society,
All of your reasons don’t matter.
Your staring, judgmental eyes burning
holes through my choices
leave me without doubt.
