North Shore Poetry Forum

Yesterday I joined the North Shore Poetry Forum for their annual Poetry Reading celebrating National Poetry Month and the Naomi Cherkofsky’s contest.

Much to my delight I won an honorable mention in the contest and read the winning poem, Dragonfly, to the audience along with Paperboy In The Dugout, and Split Hemlock.

In addition to the poetry contest winners reading, each forum participant had the opportunity to read three poems. The poems ranged from a long prose poem to a short memorized rhymed poem. The variety was uplifting and inspirational.

National Poetry Month is bringing much to inspire and praise the writing of poetry.
