April is National Poetry Month -- a good time, we thought, to introduce you to the work of Colorado poets like Pattiann Rogers of Castle Rock. She started writing poetry about 30 years ago as a young mother living in Texas. Since then, she’s published over a dozen collections and gotten national attention for her work, which often focuses on nature and science.
