Kicking Off National Poetry Month: What Shall Be After

03 Apr

Poetry, National Poetry Month, Poems, From Behind the Pen

April is National Poetry Month. This annual poetry celebration was inaugurated in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets. Let’s dive into our treasure trove of words to fluidly create amazing works in this awesome universe of poetry.

What Shall Be After

Seeking supernatural signs and wonders
overlooking the existence of their obvious presence
not hidden or invisible from sight
clearly present, yet constantly gone unnoticed
if you can’t see what’s already here
how can you recognize that which is to come?

If only we look more to spiritual guidance
and a lot less to tangible reliance
we shall witness that which was, is now
and that which is to come
has already been
the power of the circle of life.

(from Wings of the Wind: A Cornucopia of Poetry)

Happy #NationalPoetryMonth
