Random Acts of Poetry Day

It’s the first Wednesday in October, which means today is Random Acts of Poetry Day:

Random Acts of Poetry Day is about painting poetry in the public square, either literally or figuratively. Chalk your poem onto the sidewalk, leave one on a subway seat, pin one onto your local grocery store board.

The website Tweet Speak Poetry offers a free book to download with 10 ideas for sharing random acts of poetry…or get creative to let poetry touch someone today.

They also offer links to good poems to share, but we recommend just choosing your favorite poet and sharing a poem of his or hers that really means something to you, or that you just happen to love. Enthusiasm is contagious. Let’s try to spread poetry like the norovirus.

How’s that for a campaign slogan?

Thanks to our friend Kevin Dublin for passing this along!
