In honor of National Poetry Month, a different kind of poem.
So 1812 Productions, a theatre company in Philadelphia devoted to comedy, is collecting Mom Poems as part of their upcoming production of "It's My Party: The Women and Comedy Project."
They are asking folks to create poetic tributes to their moms -- sort of a poetry by Mad Lib -- and share a photograph. These will be posted on the website and some will be up around the city as posters.
I was proud to share this photo of my mom, Bernice Feldman, in her US Navy uniform from WWII. I may never have learned how to knit but I love her tons. And when it comes to poetry, she is my biggest fan.
