My Saturday Plans: Two Global Actions

Opening slide for video poems

Two global events will occur on September 24, 2011:

1. Moving Planet, a worldwide rally to demand solutions to the climate crisis.

2. 100 Thousand Poets for Change, a demonstration/celebration of poetry to promote serious social, environmental, and political change.

I thought: Why not do both?

Barring an emergency, I plan to post from midnight to midnight, one poem per hour (at any time during that hour). That's starting from 00:00-01:00 and ending at 23:00-24:00 Eastern Time on Saturday, September 24.

All the poems are sonnets. Each takes its cue from an article dealing with climate change. The source articles had been posted beginning on September 15 -- the date of the 24-hour Climate Reality Project that inspired me to do this -- through September 19, the day I drafted the twenty-fourth poem.

Stay tuned. The action starts September 24 at midnight!
