NANAIMO — The lives of transit riders in Nanaimo will be improved by poetry.
Every bus in the fleet will feature two poems written by local authors on the theme of “caring for others.”
It was inspired by Nanaimo’s poet laureate Tina Biello, who told NanaimoNewsNOW this will enrich everyone’s life.
“A poem can do on one page what it takes a novel to do in 500 pages,” she said. “That’s the beauty of it.”
