April is #NationalPoetryMonth. Here is one is the poems from my new book, “embracing now.” Also, subscribe to the YouTube Poetry Network and watch the video of today’s poem.

darkness, the noticeable art 

before the sun shifts the 

initial mood, 

covers everything. 

delightful beauty, 

barely visible, 

is out of our hands. 

we are pedestrians, 

observing the delicate cadence 

of a whisper. 

though we frantically try, 

we are not in control.
