Inspired by Jan Hutchinson’s prompts for National Poetry Writing Month 2023.
As I said somewhere else, I won’t manage to write a poem a day this April. The start was delayed, as I didn’t want to bore you with unimaginative rants giving righteous indignation and certain occurrences too many words and importance.

Life is fascinating. It is both joyful and painful and everything in between, but there are lessons to be learned, and yes, treasures to be found. If we ever think we are in control, we are mistaken, but that is the beauty of our journeys. I hope you find something in these poems to give you pause, to make you think, or to make you feel.
