What do you like most about #NationalPoetryMonth  ? For me it's the tons of new #poems  that it #inspires  because one of the most powerful functions of modern poetry is that it helps people confront the turmoil in the world & make peace with it at the same time. The title of this one is "Rainbow-Song for the Angel of Tao":

This is what "An Angel for New Orleans" looks like when turned into a video work of art featuring words by one poet, music by another, and video production by a third:

For some authors, almost everything they write is one kind of poem or another. For some others, the life they live is one endlessly self-composing poem.

Pinterest seems to have a lot more staying power than some social networks that pop up one year then disappear the very next.

For some people the word #Poetry  is synonymous with the words #air  & #food  but often preferred to either:

The author of modern poetry classic The River of Winged Dreams, and co-author of Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance, Aberjhani chats with the editors of Poetry Life and Times about his early literary beginnings and new and forthcoming projects.

I don't know why I tend sometimes to fumble around for weeks after a new poem by me is published but I do. I remain a bit dazzled to see ODE TO THE GOOD BLACK BOOTS THAT SERVED MY SOUL SO WELL in the pages of Poetry Life & Times:

It is much more common these days to find quotes from my book #TheRiverOfWingedDreams  than it is to find quotes or entire poems from I Made My Boy Out of Poetry. When Dublin artist Jaanika Talts went against the trend she inspired some words on what it means to create beauty in a world that insists on engaging war. Included in this post is the full text for "Calligraphy of Intimacy," making its Internet debut.
