Today, across Canada, poets are standing up and reading their poetry aloud in celebration of Poetry Month. People are reading in Toronto, Ottawa, Cornwall, Salt Spring Island, Calgary, Lund, Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Peterborough and many places in between.

Poets are presenting themselves in bookstores and schools, at bus stops, in hospitals, under trees in forests, in offices and cafés, by beaches, on the bus and right here in front of you. As soon as this poet is finished, another poet will start reading somewhere else - every fifteen minutes, on the fifteen minutes. 48 poets and then some. There is a group in Kingston, Ontario filling several hours of their own. There are small groups reading together for one to three hours in Peterborough, Ontario (where this idea originated) and there's even a poet reading in Cuba.

While you are here, listening to this poet, and as you go about the rest of your day, take a moment to notice the poetry all around you. The poetry of everyday life. Today, poetry is being brought to life across the country. Tomorrow? It will still be there, perhaps more silent, but still there. Take time to look for it, when you can.

For now, enjoy the Cooked and Eaten International Poetry Month Twelve Hour Poetry Marathon.

To keep up with events as poets post comments and images about their day, go to the poetry marathon blog site sponsored by our friends at Radio Free Peterborough.
