Welcome to Day 30 of my 30-Day Poetry Challenge!

Well, here we are, the end of April, the end of this poetry challenge! Wow, it has been a ton of fun, a lot of work, and extremely meaningful to connect with people and give away books. I’ve learned a lot in the process. 

Thank you SO MUCH, readers and commenters and sharers of my work! I am humbled and honored by your part in all this, yes, even if you read in silence, just a few poems.  I am still thinking about what’s next for me going forward, and definitely want to continue posting here, poems or observations. Stay tuned! I have a lot of ideas…

Congratulations, Brenna, for winning a free copy of my poetry book! Brenna, please email me your address so I can send your prize: theresa.sapphire@gmail.com

I will do one more book raffle tomorrow, so don’t forget to comment. I will contact the winner by email. 

Thanks again for reading! Now for today’s poem.
