another stop on your poetry map…

July 14, 2012

Possibility by Julia Copus, Blackburn, Lancashire, UKWe like writing about poetry walks — places where poetry has emerged from the page or screen to inhabit the landscape and invite a different kind of interaction.

Here’s another. “Possibility,” a poem by Julia Copus, has been incorporated into the town center of Blackburn, in Lancashire, UK. Artist Stephen Broadbent spirals the words around plane trees in Fleming Square, in some places keeping them flush with the ground, in others raising them to bench height in a bronze ribbon. The project was completed in 2003 and remains a popular attraction in this large Lancashire town.

    Do we have other poetry walks in the US? Besides the author walk in Central Park?
