Welcome April

Wouldn’t it be lovely,wouldn’t it be grandif April showered poetryacross our troubled land?
And tossing our umbrellas,we’d jump in puddlesfree or rhymed,spattering riotous bursts joyor tender words sublime.
Everyone would get along,and peacefully join handsif April showered poetryacross our troubled land.

Ann Burg and 5 other people liked Sam's review of Unbound: A Novel in Verse:
Unbound by Ann E. Burg
"I read Unbound in one night. It's an easy read, thanks to the verse and colloquial writing style that feels natural to southerners. But just because it's simply written, doesn't mean it doesn't have punching power.

Unbound is a beautiful, spiritua..." Read more of this review »

“Sometimes the words people don't say are as powerful as the ones they do.”
Ann E. Burg, All the Broken Pieces

“Maybe love is like
a monsoon rain.
When it rains
really hard and heavy,
it seems like
it will never end
and we'll swim in mud
forever.

But then the wind shifts
and the earth grows
dry and cracked.
Every gurgle and ooze
tiptoes away
and we're left wishing
and waiting
for rain again.

Maybe love is like that.
Maybe the wind shifts
and love just tiptoes away.”
Ann Burg, All the Broken Pieces

“Words are messy,
but sometimes,
words are all you've got
to show what matters most.”
Ann Burg, All the Broken Pieces
