Day 18 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge!!  Thanks to those of you who have stuck with me from the beginning and as we come to the home stretch, it’s getting a little more (to borrow a phrase) Challenging!!  Anyways……I have a deep and abiding love for poetry.  It can be melodic, gut-wrenching, soul searching, powerful, melodramatic, seething or heartwarming.  I love it because it expresses so much in its simplest form and gets down to the heart of the matter.  I wanted to share my favorites and in turn, perhaps you can share yours with me!
