Lumière Cape Breton


I had the good fortune to participate in Lumière Cape Breton’s Art-at-Night event in downtown Sydney on September 23. Fellow poet Sean Howard and I collaborated on an installation called the Poemtree. Participants were invited to bring or write poems to hang in the tree’s branches over the course of the evening. People brought and wrote hundreds of poems–silly poems, sacred poems, secret poems, love poems, heroic poems, you name it. It was magical!
