Poetica // Christchurch, NZ

In September, I scribbled a few lines on Poetica's Infinity Poetry blackboard - an installation on Columbo Street which encouraged passers by to share well loved poems or a few words of their own, thereby injecting some life and inspiration into an empty post-quake space.  Little did I know, my four line homage to the city would be voted the favourite contribution to the project and subsequently be painted on the wall for all to see.  I feel fortunate that I've been able to leave my mark on our re-emerging city, albeit a small and soon to be hidden one.  You can find out more about Poetica: The Christchurch Urban Poetry Project here.  (And read the Sydney Morning Herald's feature on Christchurch where my poem makes an appearance here.)
