It's Poem in Your Pocket Day -- one of my favorite occasions.
The premise is simple: Select a poem you love and carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, friends, neighbors and strangers (I added the strangers part. The Academy of American Poets, sponsors of this special day, do not officially include strangers in the sharing process, but really, isn't everyone a stranger until they meet the good, pure love of a poem?).
This is a day to savor and share, and I prefer to travel light, with a short but punchy poem. Here's my pick:
And Love Says
"I will take care of you,"
To everything that is
translated by Daniel Ladinsky
The Gift, poems by Hafiz, The Great Sufi Master
