Poet-Tree returns to Buffalo Bayou Park for National Poetry Month

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- If you're feeling the urge to wax poetic, the trees at Buffalo Bayou Park are calling.

For the second year, the Poet-Tree project has returned to the park in honor of National Poetry Month.

You'll see several trees wrapped in rainbow ribbons at the top of the hill near Eleanor Tinsley Park along Allen Parkway, just west of downtown. Containers fastened to nearby park benches hold blank tags, and visitors are invited to write poems, quotes and wishes and hang them on the trees for others to read.

Participants are also invited to share their creations on social media using the hashtag #poettree.

The project is sponsored by Writers in the Schools Houston and the Buffalo Bayou Partnership. WITS offers a kit to help other organizations establish their own DIY Poet-Trees at other spots throughout the city.
