The first day of the 21st Medellin IPF

On 2 July, the 21st Medellin International Poetry Festival began. I attended opening ceremony, then Inauguration reading.

Duruing reading, breakdown of the electricity happend, but this accident made poetry reading more sincere and warm. The audience of Medellin is very positive and friendly. About 5000 people gathered in Teatro al aire libre Carlos Vieco.

A Spanish word "todos" looks like cover is quite alive among the audience.

"Todos" lit by poems
give birth to waves
of butterfly

Inauguration reading ends with musical reading and singing by Chiwoniso Maraire from Zumbabwe. It was a miraculous performance.

In our ancient time, poetry and song were the same important performance. This festival forcused on African poetry highlights the origin of poetry.

Shortcut of electricity
and poetry: darkness
illuminates all souls
