Twofer Tuesday – National Poetry Month

National Poetry Month was instituted in 1996 to foster awareness and the importance of poetry.

Yay! Celebrate with these quotations:

“Poetry is just the evidence of life.  If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”  ~Leonard Cohen

and

“It is the job of poetry to clean up our word-clogged reality by creating silences around things.”  ~Stephen Mallarme
