Have you ever thought of starting a meeting with a poem? What would you think if you found a poem on a cereal box? What about having a poetry channel in an airline so you can listen to poetry during the flight? Have you ever seen animated poetry?
This TED talk from Billy Collins, two-term U.S. Poet Laureate, covers some of these ideas and includes the animation of some of his poems.
If after watching his talk you feel attracted to poetry in general or to his poetry in particular, you can listen to his poems at Palau de la Música Catalana on 16 May as part of the Setmana de la Poesia de Barcelona.
Other surprises include the presence of actor Viggo Mortensen who will read his poems along with the Argentinean poet Fabián Casas on Friday 12 May.
Have a lovely day and enjoy poetry!
