Brazilian Poet Adelia Prado @ Kings Place

10 Nov

A beautiful day in my life that I’d like to share with you.

Brazilian poet Adelia Prado read from her poems during the event “Adélia Prado and Thomas Lux: Poetry from the Americas”, at the Kings Place, in London.

What a great soul… A remarkable day that I’ll keep forever in my heart!

The event was organized by Poet in the City in collaboration with The Poetry Trust, presenting the debut London reading from two of the greatest poetic voices from Brazil and the USA.

Adelia read from “With Poetic Prose”, one of my favourite poems of all poems, and I include it here for your delight.

After the event, another beautifil encounter with fellow artist and poet Marcia Mar. Together we wrote a few lines inspired by the moment. Shalom!
