How Writing Poems is Like Yardwork

In honor of National Poetry Writing Month, I have a guest post over at the Peeking Between the Pages blog.

It's lucky happenstance for me that NaPoWriMo coincides with early springtime. I am an avid gardener – both by choice and by necessity – and find much inspiration from the act of tending to the yard. But, gardening doesn’t only influence my poetry thematically. I see many parallels between the ACT of gardening and the act of coaxing a poem from draft to final state.
