As I slowly emerge from the fog of a TED altered state, memories of the magical moments there arise. Two-time U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins won over my heart. I am now a poet groupie. Although his dry and witty TED talk is not yet posted, within it he did share some animations of his poetry, including this one below.
It is not that I forgot about him, I was so immersed in the mundane aspects of work and life in 2001 that I never knew he was Poet Laureate. Sad.
But happily I can enjoy his work from this moment on...until I forget.
