poetry of things

Imagine the feeling of your grandmother’s chair, the smell of your lover’s perfume or the sound of silence in a theatre. Everything tells its own story. Plenty of poems have been written about people.
But why not create poems about everyday objects?
 
Read these five line Pentapoems written by Coen van Ham about some material objects that remind you of immaterial values. In this calendar book you’ll find a pentapoem every day of the year. To remind you how special things really are. To experience that your tangible environment enriches your personal life.
