Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

Poetry and Writing Challenges - National Poetry Month

I just recently discovered that April is National Poetry Month. I love this! I have decided to share a few of the wonderful poetry challenges going on through out the month. I have only recently reconnected with the poet within me and I am going to explore it fully during the month of April. I hope you will explore your inner poet as well. Some of these are challenges not specific to poetry but could be used as such.

Blogging From A to Z Challenge April 2012 Why not create poems from A to Z...

Penny for Your Thoughts - 30 in 30 Challenge Link up and write a poem every day of April on your blog.

NPR - Muses and Metaphor - Tell Me More with Michel Martin If you are on Twitter tweet your poems of less than 140 characters with the hashtag of #TMMPoetry - sounds like fun to me!

NaPoWriMo Like NaNoWriMo only for poetry.

Have a Great National Poetry Month!
