A Different Kind of POETRY Challenge

 This challenge is hosted jointly by The Written World & Regular Ruminations.
UPDATE 7/5/12:
The challenge has evolved. Make The Poetry Project about your goals. You still post monthly about poetry but a). there is not an assigned day and b). you can post as often as you like. Just be sure to link to all your posts by the end of the month so they can be included in the round up. 

Not sure what to talk about? Follow these (optional) prompts!

Instead of a readalong or a reading challenge, this is a blog-along, with one goal: blog about poetry once a month. It is a laid-back way to get the book blogging community posting about poetry.
I post regularly.
I post things I love.
I post things that amuse or intrigue me.
I post things that force me to think.
I post things that I think might help others in some way.

I have, however, purposely kept my own commentary to a minimum, sinceI have had little time to put together what I consider to be thoughtful, insightful, and enlightening blog posts. But I would like to do more.

I'm hoping that this challenge will help by giving me a manageable goal. Well, I guess I'll find out soon enough.
1). Sign up link on regular rumination. (Some poetry suggestions if you need a push.)
2). Post about poetry on your blog on the following dates:
