It’s national poetry month! Write a poem or make something inspired by a poem you like.
I wrote this poem for our employee poetry and prose contest. We do a contest every year for National Poetry Month and exhibit the poems on posters for the entire month. It’s nice to see people, especially those visiting a patient, take a moment to read some of the poems. It takes them away metaphorically from the hospital environment even if just for a moment and by doing so, relieves stress and anxiety.
