April is national poetry writing month, and I've taken up the challenge from my friend Richard Russeth (I'd tag his blog here, but I don't know how to do that yet) to write a poem everyday. I figured that's something I've wanted to get back into and, as my other lenten disciplines are a bit lackluster this year, why not...? It's my understanding that posting them is optional. As I'm a bit out of practice in both poeming and blogging, I may exercise the option not to some days. We'll see.
