Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month, held every April, is the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.
Yes, it is. April is the month of poetry. I had to literally dust of my magnetic poetry to piece together some words for the occasion.
Love, the moon and weather. Always easy subjects for poetry, but what do you expect? I was playing with my words during commercials while I was watching "The Science of Stupid" on Nat.Geo. Channel last night.

I finished my third submission for Virtual Paintout, Bhutan. My other two paintings can now be seen there. Since Google Street View blurs out faces, I had to make up the features for these four youngsters. They are each dressed in a traditional robe called a gho. According to several sources all men are required by the government of Bhutan to wear the gho especially if they are in school or work in the government.
To see the Google Street View location of my selection for this painting go here. https://goo.gl/maps/NpjpD
I was so sorry to hear about the catastrophic earthquake in the Himalayan Mountains today. At this time there are 1,800 known deaths. Bhutan's northern border is part of these mountains but the country reported no major damages.
