Did you know that any of your poems could pay you for a cup of coffee on March 21? Read to know how.

Spring and International Day of Poetry

What a wonderful initiative! I've just found out that March 21 is International Poetry Day as called by Julius Meinl, a coffee-roasting company since 1862 and sponsored by UNESCO.
If one is a poet, one of its poems could pay for a coffee in any of the 1,100 cafes in Continental Europe as well as in UK, the USA or Australia. Or, if one doesn't write poetry, chances could be that one wrote a poem some day when feeling in the blues or over the top. This one would do too to pay for a coffee at any of one's favourite coffee-shop or bar.
I don't usually write poetry, but I do occasionally tempt it. Actually, I've recently written an Ode to the potato (published here) and I might as well try my luck with it!
Whatever, I think it's a wonderful initiative to get poetry out.
It'll be a Saturday and, therefore, a day to unwind and to go out with a couple of poems in one's book to tempt it in any of the coffee-shops or bars that may support this initiative. It isn't because no one is so poor that can't afford to pay for a cup of coffee, but it's an appealing one.
It'll be a day to rest, to let worries aside for a while and to not want to do more things, but to feel more going out for a stroll and to stop in a cafe to see if they are to accept payment with one of our poems for a cup of coffee. Chances are that they did!
