National Poetry Day

02 Oct

The theme for this year is ‘Remember’.  I want to remember Dylan Thomas who was born 100 years ago this month. I love these words of his, not a poem but about poetry:

“Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toenails twinkle, makes you want to do this or that or nothing, makes you know that you are alone in the unknown world, that your bliss and suffering is forever shared and forever all your own.”

I hope you can find a poem today that will make you feel something of the above.
