The weekend after my birthday Raf and I stayed in Ocean Park for the weekend. We spent some time walking around Oysterville, an old fishing village, and had a great time learning about all of the old houses. We discovered the Oysterville Graveyard and wandered around it for awhile. I took a few pictures of the graves, the one above being one of them. What a weird grave site. I mean, seriously. WTF. The place felt kind of haunted as it was and to stumble upon this grave with a baby doll laying atop it was unsettling. But it was also kind of funny too. I don’t know, maybe I just have a dark sense of humor. I think I do.
It’s April, which means it’s National Poetry Month! I’ve also learned that it is NaPoWriMo as well, from one of my Twitter friends, Toni (check out the poem she wrote!) I love the idea and I may try my hand but I doubt I’ll be able to write a poem a day. However, I would like to celebrate the month by sharing some poetry I’ve written. I did a quick video of myself reading a poem that I wrote last year that I will post in the next few days. I need to edit it down a bit in iMovie (which I have no clue how to use) and then I will upload it.
In the meantime, happy National Poetry Month! Please take some time to read and share a few of your favorite poems. I’d love to hear what your favorites are!
