April is National Poetry Month and Tell Me More is asking listeners to tweet original poetry. Poems that are 140 characters or less can be marked #tmmpoetry, and some of the poetic tweets will be aired throughout the month of April.

JACKI LYDEN, HOST:

And now, a brief programming note. April's nearly here and we're hoping it will spark showers of creativity. To remind you, last year, we decided to commemorate National Poetry Month by combining two of TELL ME MORE's passions, poetry and social media.

The Muses and Metaphors series was so much fun that we decided to try it again and, of course, we need your help. If you're poetically inclined, go to Twitter and tweet us your original poetry using fewer than 140 characters and the hashtag #TMMPoetry.

To learn more about it, go to NPR.org, select TELL ME MORE from the Program page and read about it on our blog.
