For those of you who are longtime readers of my blog, you know that I have a certain fascination with poetry. At times I’ve penned a bit of poetry for this space and have often linked to, or included poetry in my posts.
Why poetry? I’m not sure, but I think it has something to do with the chewiness and brevity of a poem. It does so much work in so little space. This appeals to the minimalist in me.
So as a way to include my poetry in my year, I resolved to listen to The Writer’s Almanac podcast each morning as I sit down to breakfast. I must say that it’s great to start the day with beautiful words.
