April is a good month because "April showers bring May flowers" right along with the National Poetry Month. I almost forgot but thanks to Mir, I can shower myself in plenty of poetry for the soul.
I started writing poetry for school assignments when I was little kid but now it's something I do for my own personal joy. Poetry is pure and comes deep from the heart. It's mysteriously beautiful like a wild mustang running across the open plains.
My favorite poets are Langston Hughes, Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost. Their words have inspired me in ways that only great poetry can. If you have never read any of their stuff then why not start now? And if they don't suit your tastes then find some poets that do.
Here are a couple of haiku poems I wrote back in the 11th grade for a class assignment.

Little leaf, red, brown
Tiny pebbles flow around
Things come and go fast.
They change and transform now.
Always being missed.
