Poetry Rain in Berlin
Saturday evening held some impressive moments for the people in Berlin and an event that is seldom to experience. On August 28 at 8pm a helicopter circulated above Lustgarten square in the middle of Berlin and dropped tens of thousands of poems by poets from Chile and Germany. This event took place during the long night of museums in Berlin with a focus on Bicentenario this year.
The falling poetry pieces in the evening sky and all the people trying to catch them created a great and very special atmosphere with the helicopter circulating for about half an hour. We heard people discussing the best ways to catch the poems, others starting a competition on who collected more… we experienced people who were absolutely eager for poetry. All photos: © Cara
