National Poetry Month

"Breathe in experience, breathe out poetry."  — Muriel Rukeyser

In celebration of words, stanzas, cadence and the essence of our shared humanity, each year we dedicate an entire month to poetry. This expression of art and life. Inhale deeply. 

From the compilation Paint Me Like I Am comes this selection from Marcela Ferlito. 

Papa
It seems as though 
We had lost our touch
Are we getting it back?

We were so close years ago
When I was younger
We were like little kids
Always trying something new
Even the things we knew would get us in trouble
With Mom
As the years progressed
Our relationship started tearing 
And wearing out

You saw me changing
But did not enjoy acknowledging it
Did you not know I could change?
That my branches would stem out?
Well, they have
Take these flowers I offer you
Whose seeds are yours
