This April, like the two previous, I’m joining poets around the world to participate in GloPoWriMo, and this April, like never before, I feel I need poetry in my life, especially when the writing of it connects me to poets around the world. You can participate, too. Check out the Na/GloPoWriMo website to find (optional) daily prompts.
