21/03 – Forest+Poetry

” I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree “

Forest is of course the best poem ever. And what’s better than celebrating the beauty of both; the forests & the poems, on the same day. The starting lines of the blog & the March 21 , both relate the forests to the poetry. Yes, today is the day for the aesthetic, the day to celebrate beauty. Today is the international day of forest & also the world poetry day.

Let’s first talk about the history of the day.

The International Day of Forests (IDF) was proclaimed by The United Nations General Assembly on March 21st 2012.The Day celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of all types of forests.This day is an effort to attain the SDG 15. Each year , on this day, countries are encouraged to undertake efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns. The theme for the year 2021 is “Forest  restoration : a path to recovery and well-being.”

During UNESCO’s 30th session which was held in Paris in 1999, the decision to proclaim March 21st as World Poetry Day was taken. The Day is celebrated to recognize ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind.One of the main objectives of the Day is to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and to offer endangered languages the opportunity to be heard within their communities. The day is celebrated to encourage every art form.

March 21st , is the day to celebrate the confluence of two beautiful arts, one by God & one by human.

Ps : For all those who’re in search of a poem, the forest could become the one. And for all those who’re in love with forests, poetry could express the feeling of pure love.🌿🌺💚✍️
