April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate and encourage children’s interest in poetry, I’m running a Goodreads giveaway where you can register to win one of 10 copies of my illustrated poetry book White Wild Indigo! The entry period begins on Apr 15, 2018 and ends on May 10, 2018.
The natural world has so many advantages from inspiration to health benefits. The best gift I’ve received from exploring the majesty of this impressive world we live in and its royal beauty is how it opened up my heart to writing poetry, and to my inner artist.
I write in bits and short bursts—sort of what it feels like to wiggle in and out of boulders as you climb up a mountain. The greatness of the colors, the mountain air, the peace, the blues and earthy hues enhance my thoughts and turn off the distractions; then it all comes spilling out like one of those narrow creeks down the side of the mountain after a big rain.
