How can National Garden Month Inspire Poetry?

15 Apr

National Gardening Month, Gardening, Japanese GardenPoets and writers seek inspiration in every nook and cranny, from the most obvious to the most inconspicuous. Now that Spring has officially sprung, people are getting their gardening swagger on. The cornucopia of flora and fauna found in gardens everywhere, whether occupying acres of land or in container niches on a patio, gardens have not only been breathtaking but have stirred up our internal creative juices.

Since we are celebrating National Poetry Month in April, why not add more pizzazz to our poetry writing as we celebrate National Garden Month? Celebrated annually in April, National Garden Month is for enjoying and taking pride in looking, touching and smelling the beautiful plants that you grow and love. If you never grew a garden of any type before, why not test the waters and plant a few flower bulbs in flower pots and go from there. Get some books or go on a field trip to your local nursery or garden center and ask the experts about plants, trees or vegetables indigenous to your area and get started. You can journal your planting progress and turn it into a poem or some other form of writing that would appeal to those who share your interests.

Be sure to add accessory elements, like garden sculptures or a fountain that will make your garden tell a story. The garden’s the limit, so grow some poetry and celebrate nature at its best! Happy National Poetry Month and National Garden Month!
