Happy #NationalPoetryDay!

The leaves are changing

The wheels are turning effortlessly in my mind

stars are aligning

it must mean that our time has come.

Happy National Poetry Day!


 Something about a good word that brings you much pleasure. I truly enjoy poetry and all that it does for the soul. I woke up this morning in reflection of so much, and then it hit me.

“IT’S YOUR DAY LOVE!”

I squealed with so much excitement and joined my family via social media to celebrate us.

The storytellers.

The scribes.

The writers.

This artistry isn’t made for everyone. We have a unique gift that everyone longs to have. It’s amazing.

Sometimes, I can’t even believe that I am a poet.

This art has saved me so many times.

And I’m sure there’s a unique story for everyone behind poetry.


In honor of #NationalPoetryDay, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite pieces and phenomenal individuals.

Jasmine Mans – Dear Ex Lover

Miles Hodges – From Head To Toe

Carl Lewers – Jigsaw

Alysia Harris – This Woman
