I found this beautiful poem from the Instagram account Make Blackout Poetry reposted by NAMI. Tomorrow begins National Poetry Month, and I’m so excited about it! I’m going to follow the #aprpad #poemaday writing prompts from Writer's Digest. Also, The Academy of American Poets has other great suggestions for ways to observe the month (hint: if you’re not up for writing a poem a day, you could just read one instead!). In the meantime, as NAMI said in their post, “Trust the process and keep going. 💙”
Here’s an article about the Make Blackout Poetry project, its founder, and the community of hope it has built.
