I’m pleased to announce that I’ll again be participating in my state’s poetry society’s monthly virtual reading, which will take place April 10th at 5 p.m. mountain time. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Poetry Month than to come to this event and listen to some good poetry and conversation and perhaps share a poem or two of your own. All the details are below. I hope to see you there.
WyoPoets is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
This event is open to anyone who wants to share or listen to poetry. You don’t have to be a member of WyoPoets, you don’t even have to be in Wyoming to participate. So, feel free to invite your friends! Please sign up to read and receive a Zoom invitation using this Google Form: https://forms.gle/2CBuJdWA4fHwZ6Zw7
The first 20 poets to sign up will get to read, additional poets will be allowed based on time. Each poet gets 5 minutes to read.

Sixteen-year-old Natalie’s grandmother, suffering from dementia and confined to a wheelchair, lives in a nursing home and rarely recognizes Natalie. But one Halloween night, she tells her a shocking secret that only she and Natalie’s mother know. Natalie is the product of a one-night stand between her mother, who is a college English teacher, and another professor.
After some research, Natalie learns that people with dementia often have vivid memories of past events. Still not wanting to believe what her grandmother has told her, she finds her biological father online. The resemblance between them is undeniable. Not knowing what else to do, she shows his photo and website to her parents.
Natalie realizes she has some growing up to do. Scared and confused, she reaches out to her biological father, and they start corresponding.
Her younger sister, Sarah, senses their parents’ marital difficulties. At Thanksgiving, when she has an opportunity to see Santa Claus, she asks him to bring them together again. Can the jolly old elf grant her request?
