It’s the U.S. National Poetry Month (I think the U.K. has it in October?). I always have great intentions, and I always end up writing a post in late April that begins “I always have great intentions….” I haven’t come up with so much as a haiku. But I have been retweeting poems that I see and like on Twitter, so I’ll share them here. Most are images of the text of the poems, which is how the whole poem fits in a Tweet.
