Poetry Tuesday

Sometimes I share my own poetry. Sometimes I talk about poems I love and pick them apart so that I can put them back together like a puzzle. Sometimes I’ll show how poetry remains relevant in today’s world where everything has to be fast. The wonderful thing about poetry is that invites us to sit back and think, if only for a short while.
