Mensaje de Director General de UNESCO del Día Mundial de la Poesía 2019

Thursday, 21 March 2019 - 5:05pm

toma la luna
y toma una estrella
cuando no sepas
quién eres
pinta la imagen en tu mano
y vuelve a casa

toma la luna
y hazla hablar
saca tu alma
hazla andar
pinta la imagen en tu mano
y vuelve a casa
Extracto de “Howlin at the Moon” [Aullando a la luna] de Wayne Keon

La poesía, en todas sus formas, es un poderoso instrumento de diálogo y acercamiento. Es una expresión íntima que abre las puertas a los demás, enriquece el diálogo que cataliza todos los progresos humanos y teje lazos entre las culturas.
