Poets Past and Present Collide at Mission Bay Park

I collected some of my favorite poems from poets of the past and present, some contemporary authors which have visited my school SDSU such as Marilyn Chin and David Tomas Martinez who have done readings and visited my graduate classes. The themes of these poems encompass different perspectives on humanity, race, class, gender and religious topics unique to each poet. My goal was to portray a diverse array of poetry/poets and place them side by side– out in the open for all to see and experience. In some of these pictures you can see a few people passing by and quietly reading the poems. My hope is that maybe one or two of these poems intrigued or inspired a passerby and invited them to reflect on something from their inner world today.
