Interested?

Got this from Poets.org.

Inspired by the 2009 National Poetry Month Poster design, the Academy of American Poets invites you to capture and share your own ephemeral bits of verse.

Write lines from a favorite poem on a sandy beach, assemble twigs on a hillside, or chalk the sidewalk. Take a photo before it disappears and post it in the Free Verse group page on Flickr, or on the Academy's Fan Page on Facebook, or email your photo to freeverse@poets.org. Include the source of your lines in the photo caption.

All photos posted by April 15 will be automatically entered in a contest to win the new Poem in Your Pocket anthology and a commemorative piece of jewelry by San Francisco designer Jeanine Payer, who specializes in hand-engraving lines of poetry on earrings, necklaces, and other items. Selected entries will be featured on Poets.org.
Here are two of the many images submitted by people from all over the world. Gorgeous, aren't they? I think this is a very cool project! What say you?


Poem by Walt Whitman

(Caption reads: "I want to do with you what spring does with cherry trees." )

Hmm... maybe we can use the pictures from the kotak otak event last time, when we wrote on the pillar.

Else lets graffiti KL and paint this town red!
