No, I wasn't in London last weekend ...

Above you see a photo from last year. But I enjoyed it to follow a conference in London -- via twitter, last Saturday. I thought that it would be a good time for someone who loves short poetry and it really was a good time.

Here more about this conference (Tate Modern, London):

"Shortness
A very short conference and a very long dinner


Saturday 20 June 2009, 14.00–21.30

14.00–17.00 symposium 18.00–21.30 dinner in the East Room"

"In short, this event brings together practitioners and theoreticians of the humanities, arts and sciences to extol or berate, to discuss, explore and explain shortness in all its spatial and temporal manifestations..."

"...The short conference is followed by a long dinner in Tate Modern's East Room. Dinner guests will be entertained by short speeches and the whole event is supplemented by short films, performances and various intervention..."

Iran!
This word became
a cry.
Far away
I walk barefoot
on stones,
try to understand
and sigh.

A sepal, petal, and a thorn
Upon a common summer's morn
A flask of Dew - A Bee or two
A Breeze - a caper in the trees
And I'm a Rose!


(Emily Dickinson, 1830 - 1886)
