National Poetry Month! / by J. Ivy

April is officially recognized as National Poetry Month...what a month, what a month!! The power of the word and the gift of poetry is often overlooked, but this month we celebrate so many who put their thoughts to the page. I'm am honored and feel privileged to wear the title "Poet." There's so much strength in that title. So do me a favor, this month, find a Poet near you (if you're not one yourself) and let them know that they're appreciated. The Poets are the journey's journalist, the storytellers, the historians, so hold them up and while you're at it, write something yourself. And to all the Poets in the World "Keep Pushing That Pen!" The World needs you...
