The poems are traveling…they are going…they are coming…they are turning, bridging, and overpassing.
Poems by Robert Krammer, Barbara Crooker, Christina M. Rau, Jennifer Jean, Iris Jamahl Dukle, Brittany Connolly, Jenny Doughty, Mary Rose Betten, Michael Falkner, Ada Jill Schneider, Roberta Beary, Sally Bliumis Dunn, Joan Mazza, Donna Barkman, Andrea Stout, Matthew Topartzer, Carol Dorf, Eileen Moeller, and more moving poems on their way.
I left the poems by Carol Dorf and Eileen Moeller at LACMA.
Some of the poems have been traveling with my students–going on summer vacations and sunshine adventures.
My students write:
“I even got a couple of honks (well, I hope it was for the magnet and not the way I was driving!)”
“The thought of doing something illegal with a poem was very exciting for me. I left my poem outside the Jeld-Wen Field in Portland, Oregon.”
“My poem was “Prayer.” I left it on my sister’s car because I thought she needed it.”
I’m so “moved” by people’s reactions to these traveling poems that I’ve decided to extend the project. I will be accepting poems for The Living Poetry Project until the end of August. Please send your work to NicelleCDavis@gmail.com if you would like your poems to be considered for this poetic adventure. Also, please check back periodically to see where else these moving poems go.
