April is Earth Month AND National Poetry Month: how will you celebrate?
No foolin’! April is National Poetry Month AND it’s Earth Month! How will you celebrate? Will you share poetic good works? Will encourage environmental good works? Or both? Because, as Dr Seuss says, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Personally, I will be posting a poem a day this month on my own facebook wall as well as either on my “middle of the night poems from daughter to mother :: mother to son” page or on my “The Write Alley” page which feeds onto twitter. I also plan to continue working with Sheila Louise Photo to produce inspiring quotes and images like the one here and then publish them daily with hopes that one or more of them will go viral to spread these important messages.
And of course, my students and I are putting together a really great Earth Day at Ventura College on Earth Day April 22 from 3-9pm!
