Desire (Pic du Jour)

Today’s pic is another gopro still from my London 2012 pile, this time of a translation of Abdourahman A. Waberi‘s poem, Desire. Desire is the best description of that ‘swaying between here and elsewhere’ that I’ve ever read.

This was mounted on a fence along the Thames not far from the London Eye. Finding sidewalk poetry anywhere rocks my world.

Waweri’s website is here.

    Hi, I just found your blog via another that I follow, and so glad I did. I was born in Zagreb, lived in Belgrade, but now in the U.S. since 10 years old. I love your blog–and I now must visit Piran someday; from your photos it looks like it could replace Dubrovnik as one of my favorite places in the world. How have I missed it? I will soon have a blog (before year’s end) focused on conflict (my expertise) and riffs about relationships, politics, social issues, and writing. Cheers, Jagoda

    Nice! I love random poetry around a city.

      Absolutely – great to run into such projects. Really simple for municipalities to execute, too.
