NaPoWriMo 2012 – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 30
Looks like we made it! Today is the last day of the NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Month) poetry challenge! 30 poems in 30 days never felt so good. I am super honored to present my last poem for the month and it was featured on today’s NPR radio program Tell Me More. To celebrate National Poetry Month host Michel Martin featured the lyrical art form in a unique way, fusing poetry and social media. In the month long Muses and Metaphor series, Twitter users were asked to tweet poems using 140 characters or less and post them with the #TMMPoetry hashtag. Curator of the series, Holly Bass then set out to select her favorites to feature on the show and mine was chosen to close out the series!

Thanks so much to everyone who supported me by reading my poems and pushing me on to the finish line. To the other writers and poets who also participated in this challenge please know that you inspired and entertained me along the way and I am definitely richer for having done this with an amazingly talented group of bloggers! Please let me know your thoughts about my radio feature! Cheers!
Feed me, put poetry on the plate. I’ll dine with gratitude savoring the taste. Digesting every word. Leaving no diameter to waste.
