Wow! I made it through week three of National Poetry Month. I'm starting to feel like that little engine. I notice that because I am sharing poems on social media with people I know and don't know that I tend to censor myself a bit. This week I attempted to be a bit more real at least a couple of times.
Thank you commenters. I've read every comment and they grow my confidence. The Poetry Friday community has been so very kind.
Head on over to the exceptionally multi-talented Tabatha Yeatts', The Opposite of Indifference, for this week's Poetry Friday round-up.
