For National Poetry Month 2014, I featured a different poet/poem nearly every day on this blog to celebrate poetry and the people who write it. Click here to start the series with the April 1st posting (a poem by Fady Joudah), and then scroll forward to the next post to see each day’s lovely offering. Thank you to all the wonderful poets who so generously shared their work with us here.
The Poet-A-Day series for 2015 begins here with a review of Joelle Biele’s Broom by Anna Leahy in a coincidence (in the sense of two things coinciding) with Women Writers Wednesday.
This post begins the 2016 celebration of National Poetry Month here on my blog with a Book Spine Poem by Harlan Howe.
Here’s the first Poem-A-Day post for National Poetry Month 2017: a rumination at the end of a long year by Paula Billups.
The first poem for the 2018 series, entitled “Saints Among Us,” is by Robin Reagler, who was my boss at Writers in the Schools back in the late 1990s and who is still one of the professionals I often think of when I imagine what it means to be an excellent manager.
I started the 2021 series with https://sapphostorque.com/2021/04/01/poem-a-day-2021-day-1-mary-oliver/Mary Oliver’s poem “Don’t Hesitate.”
Here’s a quick archive of my poems that have appeared here on this blog.
