Poet-tree comes to life in Moffat

A ‘POET-TREE’ has been created at Moffat Community Nature Reserve to mark World Poetry Day.

From today people will be asked to pick a paper leaf, write their name on one side and any words that inspire them about nature and the reserve on the other.

Next they have to hang it on the tree and watch it quiver in the breeze.

Project officer Darren Flint would love to see as many people as possible come along during the week to discover the reserve and let their creative juices flow.

He said: “This early in the year there are few leaves on the trees, so help us fill the Poet-Tree with brightly coloured leaves of inspiration.

“It might be the lapping of the lochan water that inspires you, the haunting cry of the oystercatchers, or the feel of the damp squidgy mosses.

“Sit back, close your eyes and let your senses take over.”

The tree will be in the picnic shelter from today and people are invited to come along all week and offer their words of wisdom.
