For happy National Poetry Month, from The Doll Collection, edited by Diane Lockward.

from Dream Doll in the Making / by Marie Beaumont

She named here Serendipity-do.
She became a continuously floating thing.
A fishbowl notoriety followed her everywhere.
Against the elements, she fared well.

Dear Poetry Followers, here’s a fragment from a new book published just this month; it’s from one of our favorite Floridians, and from the book, Rift of Light.

from Complaint / by William Logan

If there are dream houses,
are there undreamed houses

full of the things we desire
or only those we deserve?

For our lived-in house renovation, from poets.org; the diy part is not as easy as it looked on paper!

from Regardless of Disaster / by Jessica Greenbaum

Only through a disaster or a renovation
does the entire brick side of a house come down
and in this case the workmen threw stoves and refrigerators
out the windows, letting them bounce
off the fire escapes into the little Brooklyn yard.
