Poetry everyday? Not quite. Poetry most days? Yes — sometimes editing or reading or teaching* or writing poetry. Or, attending a Tower Poetry Workshop!
My poems don’t usually come about in one sitting, unless they do, but that tends to be the exception to the rule. I often pull out old poems or ideas for a poem or even random jottings and try to rework or edit or merge some together. Whatever happens, happens. The goal of National Poetry Month is simply to enjoy poetry and share that joy with the whole wide world… read your favourite poems, share them and discuss them; write them, whatever floats your boat:)
The NaPoWriMo site is a great way to celebrate poetry month as each day it features a poet (so you can read and enjoy a fellow poet’s work), shares a resource (always useful), and offers a poetic prompt. while I don’t always have time day-to-day to write complete poems daily, I do save the prompts for those times when I’m stuck when trying to write.
