Did you all know that April is National Poetry Month? I stumbled upon this fun piece of information at work today and thought it would be fun to join in the spirit of celebrating poems and the poets who pen them. However, aside from the poems my sister makes me write her every year on her birthday, I’m not much of a poet. So, I decided to post a video of one of my very favorite poets in the whole world, Kim Sasser.
I had the honor of hanging out with Kim for a short time in my life, and it didn’t take me long to realize she had an amazing way with words, as well as an amazing view of life. Her poems and spoken word changed the way I thought about poetry, and I will always count her as one of the most inspiring people I have ever known.
If you like the video, you can also listen to another one of her poems called “Lemonade” on her band’s website.
Who are your favorite poets? I’d love to hear about them! Feel free to post your favorite poems as comments!
