[By guest contributor Deborah Buchanan]

Poetry isn’t always found in books or being slammed from a stage. Poet and teacher Nicelle Davis is trying to underscore that fact.

The wonderfully strange normality of poems

As agent provocateur she has embarked on The Living Poetry Project. Outside of her classroom, she will read poems from a book on tools to construction workers; or she will surprise shoppers with hidden poems in the pockets of jeans on a store’s sale rack. Next she burns a Rumi poem into small pieces of wood left scattered in a restaurant; or writes a poem on a t-shirt and gives it away.

You get the idea: poetry everywhere and anywhere, waiting to enliven and deepen your day. Check out The Living Poetry Project on her poetry blog The Bees Knees, and remember: DO try this at home.
