Today I offer inspiration from poets born in April.
"A fresh and vigorous weed, always renewed and renewing, it will cut
its wondrous way through rubbish and rubble." William Jay Smith
"More matter with less art" Hamlet ~ William Shakespeare
"One can live without having survived." Carolyn Forche
"To write a blues song is to regiment riots and pluck gems from graves."
~ Etheridge Knight
“You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.” ― Annie Dillard
Let these quotes lead to poetry. You can choose any form, or no form at all. I also used photos I felt worked with the quotes. You can draw inspiration from them also. I am including the license information from Pexels which applies to each image
