Poetry Trail II: Corbenic Poetry Path

Returning from Perth, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit the Corbenic Poetry Path.

Such was the enjoyment that I received from visiting the Poetry Path (though unable to complete the full walk due to the expected wet weather I was unprepared for) that I don’t want to recreate every bit here.  Just enough to tempt others to make a point of experiencing it in the flesh.

Poetry Path Stepping Stones

Some lent themselves to the possibility of being recreated and personalised in the homestead, like the stacked logs below…

…While others were uniquely suited to, and born from, their surrounding environment.

Poetry Path Eteched Glass

For me, the path reaffirms my belief that poetry, in its broadest spectrum, can reach everyone, and more needs to be done to take it beyond the classroom and the bookshop.   The poets and poetry selected are both profound and accessible, as the project is keen to encourage live events and readings.

A project such as this is a gift.  To those who hunt out the harmony that poetry brings to them,  it is an escape, a proof, and a validation all in one.  And to those who just stumble upon it?  A clear sign that poetry is, and can be, a living, breathing part of everyday life.
