A few years ago I began a challenge to read 1001 poems in 1001 days. Unfortunately I did not complete the challenge within that time frame but it did start me on a good habit of consuming a poem or two for breakfast and sometimes also for lunch or a snack in the evening. I like to savour each poem so one or two at a time is plenty for me. I do find that reading poetry is good to slow me down and help me to ponder the meaning and impact of the poet’s words.
