Today is World Poetry Day, a day which has apparently been celebrated globally since 1999. I just became aware of this today. But hey, better late than never!
Coffee company Julius Meinl (primarily based in Europe and Australia) is even offering its customers free coffee in exchange for a poem! [It appears the only participating location in the US is in Chicago so I am out of luck.]
I plan to work on a haiku today in celebration. Are you celebrating World Poetry Day? Do you have any favorite poems?
