April is Poetry Month

flaming-grill

I love April for many reasons – spring, crisp weather, the sun – you name it.  What’s not to love?  But a reason many may not know about is that April is National Poetry Month.  It’s a time to reflect on poems and authors that give us life.  Or better yet, it’s a time where we can stop and put pen to paper to scribe our own verse.

There are so many things that can inspire us.  We just have to be deliberately mindful of what they are.  You don’t have to be in extraordinary circumstances either.  Shoot, stick a good plate of food in front of me and chile I get the vapors!  Look below at my poem about just that.  I hope you enjoy it and for all of us poets out there, Be Inspired.

Sustenance

Moist flesh
Punctured skin
Dripping red
Berry sauces that tinge of grapes
Smothered layers
Cooked in creams
Succulent to the tongue
Refined nectar
Gracing the palate
Softly fondling the nostrils
Delicious heat curl the air
Waving its vitality to its many lovers
