This is indeed a good topic , i would suggest three points
first to consider the greek term poiesis, in the sense of doing, (agire) any form of action is a form of poetry
then if we consider the living world from bacteria to the global mess of ecosystems, corporations and people hiding from the storm one can postulate a distributed poetic agency, that is at many levels different organic processes are poetic, in cell metabolism, endocrine songs and immune responses, in flowers, birds and plankton blooms soaking loud humpback whales, in factory floor, academia and shouk.
And third, a very beautiful reference is Reviel Netz (2009) Ludic Proof, Greek Mathematics and the Alexandrian Aesthetic CUP, very well written and infromative the book argues for the functional, material and abstract continuity of creative efforts , how working out and exchanging mahematical problems and ways to solve them was /is part of the general conversation on producing beauty, which in my view includes the two points above.
