Slideshow Of an Open Mic Event

Creativa Cincinnati at the Cincinnati Mall Saturday April 14, 2012. We had some great performers of music and the written word. If you are in the area (or planning on being in the area, or passing through) and you would like to see a unique open mic event then check out Creativa. You can stop in and get inspired, perform, network with like minded creative people, or just sit back and listen.

National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. has a great FAQ section for this month long event. Maybe event isn’t quite the right word but, a month of celebrating one of the greatest forms of word art is an event according to me. 🙂

I’m going to try and write one poem everyday in my poetry journal. It’ll be a tough task since I have so many other things going on at the same time, but I do love a challenge.

I‘m thinking of doing something special on the blog to celebrate it as well. Perhaps a poetry  challenge to all of you who dare to write a poem or two. 


Or perhaps just inviting all of you to chime in with a quote from your favorite poet, a bit from a favorite poem (yours or another author), a link to your website that features poetry and poetry related things.

I like the second idea better. So there it is. I invite all of you to chime, ring, write, spark, blast, and leave a comment or two about poetry and what it means to you.
