gearing up

Getting my brain ready for National Poetry Month, for writing a poem a day. This will be the third year in a row I've done this. Last year it was cut short because I went to Mexico at the end of the month and didn't write the daily poems. This is my most productive time of the year. The first year I posted all of my poems but last year I kept the poems to myself, as I'll probably do this year.

April is almost here. April is always a strange month of beginnings and endings for me. Spring swings into step full-time and I begin shedding ideas, loves, old weights that hold me back. Last year I met a friend for ice cream in the middle of April and he laughed watching me dance around and told me he'd never seen me so happy. He had known me in the three other seasons but said that Spring suited me best. Maybe.

Oh, I have so much to say and so much holding me back from saying it. I need to learn how to un-censor myself. I'm practicing.

A poem a day is very ambitious. I just got back last week from lounging in the sun near Cancun. My novel Against Nature is coming out as an e-book on April 5th. I think spring will be my season this year! Even though I'm a summer boy at my core.
Check out my novel at
You might enjoy it.....a reading respite from poetry writing.
