Kathy Chilton(cq) who lives near Albuquerque's Nature Center has done something unique in her neighborhood by constructing Kathy's Poetry Box in which neighbors and anyone passing by can leave or write a poem in a notebook located inside the box.  Besides written poems, folks can leave or borrow poetry books for enjoyment and inspiration.  Pictured is Kathy checking for any new poems in the box.
