‘It’s that time of year again. Poetry is celebrated every April in the United States. The National Poetry Month was introduced in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry. It is one of my favorite monthly celebrations.’
This year’s celebration theme here at Kinna Reads is
“In Search of the New”
How broad can new be? New new or old new? I’m thinking a focus on women poets of Africa and her Diaspora for this month but I probably stray a bit. 21 poems like in previous years, more or less? Decisions, decisions. Let’s have fun, shall we? Poem, poems and more poems. What’s not to like?
