Car Cards: Poetry on the Move

In case you haven’t had a chance to see them on a bus or light rail car yet, here they are! Local award winning artist Joe Miller, also a poet, created these vibrant designs which themselves convey motion.  Let me know when you see them in county transit. Thanks again to all who collaborated in this venture.

I’ll begin posting contest entries this week. It’s an amazing collection of poems I can’t wait to share with you. I salute the writers of Santa Clara County! Happy National Poetry Month!
