Greetings and welcome to Poets on Display during National Poetry Month. Today is a non-post day for the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge. But Poetry Month continues, so here is another featured poet from the book Sunrise Summits: A Poetry Anthology, which was recently selected as a finalist for the 2017 Colorado Book Awards in the anthology category (information about the awards can be found by Clicking Here).
It’s an honor for me to continue to share the work of those who contributed to Northern Colorado Writers first poetry anthology and to have this work selected as an award finalist. The poets included are a shining example of the talent found in Northern Colorado Writers, LLC.
The poem posted below is not from the anthology. This way you get a wider read of each poet’s work. It’s been a challenge to get the poems to fit the letter theme, but I think I’ve got it worked out with the schedule. I hope you enjoy what you read here.
Today’s Poem: Anger by Eleanore Trupkiewicz
black tar across the red-green essence
of a strawberry field
sound in itself
anxious as an eggshell
for God’s sake
for the sake of God
do not leave
yourself like that
not green with life, not blue
with breath, not purple with
hope and faith
now these three remain
but only silence
and the white-hot wash
black on red, on green, on blue
only black remains
