April in Fool’s Paradise

My dear gentle readers, it is with some trepidation that I embark on a voyage that will take this blog into new territory. During the month of April, National Poetry Writing Month, I will be publishing 30 poems in 30 days right here.  It has been my desire to portray my persona in a writing.  I like covering subjects like my family tree and current events because it gives me a fact based framework, like news reporting.  I do enjoy that kind of research, so I will resume my prose posting when my 30 poems have been produced.  Do not fear. I will not turn this into my own little garden of verses.  I think it is fun to be a scribe, choosing subjects that I find intriguing.  Your fact finding reporter will return in May.

One aspect of creativity and psychic phenomena I notice and follow is the way willingness to practice opens new frontiers.  I believe we are all psychic, and all poets.  These talents or gifts can’t develop unless they are used.  Another belief that I hold strongly is that we create art that has a specific audience.  The audience can only find us if we publish or otherwise give them a chance to read it.  During April contests and events will be held to teach and share poetry writing.  By following the hashtag #NaPoWriMo on social media you can tune into happenings in your area and share fun with folks from around the world.  You may decide to participate in a group poem or attend a reading.  Of course you do not need to publish 30 poems to enjoy reading them.  I started on my path by tuning into this a couple of years ago and writing only a few of my own.  I think it is contagious in a very good way.

I was a production potter for years, selling my pots to make a living. Some of the best and most interesting pottery I made was done when I was a beginner and had very little skill. Later I made technically better pieces, but I was always producing something to sell, so I was influenced by that thought.  I hope that my poetry will follow that pattern.  My April adventure is intended to break out some new area of my ability in order to stay truly creative. I count on beginner’s luck, but am working hard to find good subjects.  Please stay tuned to find out where this leads.  I appreciate any suggestions you may have.

I am really curious about the fruits of your creativity. It is hard to get the essence out of one page and condense it in only a few lines.
