During National Poetry Month, it’s fun to celebrate poetry in small, unexpected ways. The other day, I received this postcard in the mail:
It was delightful to catch this snippet of poetry in my hands, particularly because it was so unexpected and surprising. It made me think that sending a poetry postcard is the perfect way to celebrate creativity and create delight for someone else.
The rules are simple:
- Write a poem (or part of a poem) on a postcard
- Be sure to include the title and author (if you’re sending the card anonymously and including something you wrote, you may leave the author off the card – just be sure to credit someone else’s work)
- Send to friend, acquaintance, small business, etc.
That’s it! Simple and easy, yet powerful.
If you send or receive a postcard, drop me a note in the comments section and let me know about the experience!
