As you have probably heard a billion times already, April is National Poetry Month.
In an unplanned (but totally awesome) coincidence, I released my first published poem, “A Life For Sale” a few weeks ago. So let’s celebrate poetry with a fun game.
Nikolas Baron over at Grammarly.com invited me to participate in a blog hop of sorts. Ish. Not really, but it’s still fun. In honor of Poetry Month and my new poetry release, you can enjoy the Grammarly #PoetryMonth Quiz below. But first, a bit about my new release:
“A Life For Sale” is a dark and moving poem about a woman with a final, mournful wish for the living, told through the guise of an estate sale.
From the author:
“This piece came to me out of nowhere while I was in the middle of preparing for a cross-country move. I sat down with a powerful sense of sorrow I couldn’t shake, and a poem (of all things!) formed on the pages.
Between you and me, it’s the only poem I’ve written and actually liked (and I’ve written quite a few that will never see the light of day). It’s a fun side-project. Poems aren’t something I will release very often, or maybe ever again, but I hope you connect with this glimpse into another side of my writing. Enjoy.”
