Celebrate National Poetry Month by reading Ray Olson’s review of Fakhraddin Gorgani’s Vis & Ramin (Mage), or even the book itself, or some other book of poetry, or a single poem, or even by writing a poem. I’ll admit it, I’m a little behind in my celebrating, too, but, counting today, there are seven fulls days left in which to make our lives a tiny bit more poetic.
May I recommend one of my favorite poets? Richard Hugo, who lived down the street from me when I was too young to appreciate it.
(He also wrote a pretty darn good mystery, too!)
