So I had already decided for April I would post either a poem excerpt or new poem a month and then I discovered NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month. What I like about their site is that they are featuring an independent poetry press each day in April! So cool!
My poem for today is inspired by my publisher’s blog post about my book Summoning the Phoenix. They posted a video of a girl playing Happy Birthday on the dizi, aka a bamboo flute!
When playing common
melodies, make them your own–
indulge in flourish!
