April in National Poetry Month! Stop by to check our our book display, take a poem with you, and make magnetic poetry.
Some magnetic poems made so far:
recall enormous plastic swift skin
she is wild but as creatures play..
smell sweet perfume/ no need for
more desire/ you watch me fly through
the blue delight on my face
rename a pig
and lick up garden rust
to make easy love together
symphony woman has fire
I dream named tasting nectar
embrace the night like home
a compassionate moon dream chant
Worship the languid peach
picture a cunning rose cat
kiss a mischievous blossom
ask for ancient stormy beauty
And sing of whispered diamond moments
Garden mist as frantic goddess
smooth water soar above like music
from shining love
