30 Days of Gratitude: Day 10 - Poetry

Ah, poetry. Once, I just didn't get it. Then I wrote some and I got it. Mind you, my poetry is not complex or good. But it is mine. At the time of writing it, it felt great. When I reread old stuff - like this or this - I love it. It is a part of me on the page in tattered verse. I am grateful for having learned more about poetry, because I got to learn more about myself.

A librarian I work with was involved in getting teens into poetry. We talked about how reading poetry aloud is one of the single best ways to truly start enjoying poetry. It was the best advice for my personal discovery of poetry as well.
