Through the Opera Glasses - 55 - Blogosphere Event - National Poetry Month













And what do our opera glasses light upon today?

I do believe it's another wonderful Blogosphere event I've come across at several blogs I frequent.

Apparently, April is National Poetry Month all across North America. A few brave souls have taken up the challenge of writing poetry every day for the month of April, a National Poetry Writing Month marathon.

For more details, check out the links below:

Read Write Poem, where the poetry marathon originates

For myself, I shall keep this event front and center in my mind for next April. Until then, I shall continue my bliss with my weekly poetry peeps at Monday Poetry Train Revisited.

For those of you not usually prone to poetics, why not switch hats this month and give a poem a spin?

Annette Gallant says I did not know that April was National Poetry Month. I always learn something when I read your blog, Julia. :)

Debby says I have seen it many times in blogland.

Travis says I don't know if I can write a poem every day, but I'll have to work on a few to post in honor of the month!
