  1. My April poem-a-day writing challenge has had a rough start. I’ve chosen a form I find awkward and uncomfortable, and my theme — each day’s poem is in memory of a Black woman killed by police — breaks my heart every day.

    Today I took a break from that sadness, however. It’s my niece’s birthday, so — as I’ve done every year since I started writing poems for April — I’ve written a poem for her. I’m still not loving this form, but it was much nicer slogging through it writing about my niece!


  2. You know when your post just won’t come together…and you work and work, and finally it does! And you’re so happy, and then you push publish and something weird happens and the whole thing disappears. Forever. Yeah. I almost gave up, but then tried to rewrite—So here it is, my quickly rewritten slice in appreciation of the beauty of the marsh, minus the poem which I can’t seem to recreate.


  3. I have actually managed to write a SOL the last 2 Tuesdays since the month challenge ended. Can I keep this up?
    Feeling a bit frustrated today. Are you?
