November is a month abundant with both beauty and inspiration. In anticipation of cooler weather and the first dusting of snow, nature’s beauty is on full display in November. From leaves adorned with crimson and gold to caramel-kissed grasses it is the perfect autumn wonderland.
Like November, the language of poetry is beauty, inspiration. Whether I am reading William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet or Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty”, these works of art still have the same heartfelt effect as they did when I first read them many years ago. To me this is the power of poetry.
Last year, I joined the Brooklin Poetry Society where I was warmly welcomed into a group of fellow poets. During monthly meetings they gather together to share, encourage and inspire each other through poetry and friendship.
But to me, November will always be…
