National Poetry Month

Did you know that reading poetry…

  • Improves verbal skills and memory.
  • Develops empathy and insight.
  • Improves creative thinking.
  • Enhances awareness.
  • Reduces stress.

Best of all you can enjoy the health benefits  of poetry without any strained muscles. Mary Oliver’s Dream Work is only 90 pages long.

Okay, I’m a little late to the party since National Poetry Month started April 1st. But the best thing about this type of celebration is that there’s still plenty of time and resources to celebrate the rich world of poetry. Try reading a poem a day with your morning coffee or before you turn in at night. Or better yet, do both.
