In human time we will have shed
whole versions of ourselves 
before one leaf dislodges from its stem…

~ from 'Sweedman's Sprawling Mallee' by Nandi Chinna, New Shoots WA

Poetic Moments elevates the visibility and accessibility of contemporary Australian poetry by cultural placemaking with the publishing of poems in unexpected places from mangrove boardwalks to parks, in soundscapes, art installations and on murals, trains and buses.
Embracing multiple languages, inventive platforms and artforms, PM creates opportunities to engage, respond and reflect via poetic provocations and partnerships that connect people and place through poetry.
