dazed by days of prose
april comes showering poems
state reversed by verse

April is National Poetry Month! I’ve always had a thing for poetry—reading it, hearing it, writing it and savoring it. So, I am forever grateful that Giving Back opened a new opportunity for me to evoke and express my poetical alter ego…my own “Sasha Fierce”…my bolder voice that I (sometimes) call Ava Wood.

Above is haiku she/I/we composed today for the occasion, with more like this and this and this to come. — VF
