1st BAT - A MOMENT OF SILENCE


Image taken from Visit London.

Some people say that a moment of silence is when you are walking in the country and the only thingyou can hear is your own footsteps crack on the autumn leaves, the wind blow, a nearby river rush, and the birds sing.

For me, a moment of silence takes place just ten seconds before the train arrives into the underground station: all conversations, readings, and thoughts stop and all the eyes concentrate on the tunnel's black mouth until the train appears with a thundering noise.

Now, tell me: What is your moment of silence? What describes it?

Please, post your comments before Nov 10th.

1 BATX - LET'S WRITE A POEM

Writing a poem from the scratch is a difficult task; only poets can do it and only great poets can do it well. However, some poet's works can be excellent sources of inspiration; so there we go: this time we are going to use some visual poems by the Catalan poet Joan Brossa (1919-1998).

I want to thank the Fundació Joan Brossa for letting me use them.



Visit the Fundació Brossa education service blog LABERINTS BROSSIANS.
