No way to
tell you anything
more than
this one.

I got The Collected Poems of Robert Creeley 1975 - 2005. Thank you Amazon! I had already his Collected 1945-1975. This one is from Robert Creeley's Windows (1990).

Next one is my comment for that photo I took when seated near Hyde Park Corner a week ago. I was just listening.

Two pigeons

Labels: Robert Creeley, Hyde Park Corner, EU

Oh i loved it, Tikkis... but i'm not sure i'm getting it, you made a haiga for Creeley's poem with your photograph? did Creeley present it as a text which case it could be read in more than 1000 ways :)

And on your comment -- Politics today has more pigeons ...even when they tussle in disagreement? a good sign?

good one Tikkis

Not so complicated but very simple:
1. Pigeons 'discussing' at Hyde Park Corner, where everyone is free to talk what ever he/she wants.

2. Creeleys text talking about talking.

3. Nobody perhaps did not know; I was in London in a meeting where we talked and talked this day's EU's economical politics from the point of view European Workers.

Euro is in big trouble.

Got a couple hours free from meeting and visited Hyde park, just near our hotel, and found these two pigeons also talking, talking...

Politely, just as British pigeons are doing it.

Okay i read that you been to London...but i was thinking of the political plot that caused IMF chief's stepping down...could it all be linked? but will Sarkozy (and euro) be saved if Strauss is ousted -- or could it have been better for the euro if Strauss was the next Prez...just wondering,

interesting to watch the pigeons-and politicians? :)

lastly, my confusion was if you used your Hype Park photograph for Creely's poem -- perhaps not so important to know :)


Devika said...

Oh not Hype park...Hyde Park :)


Devika said...

btw, what do you work as when you are not a poet -- if it's okay to ask, because you talking with workers was interesting :)


Eddie said...

Political birds :)

we do not have the euro.
but we are discussing about the problems, to introduce the euro or not

Tikkis said...

Thanks Eddie; you are very wise not agree Euro !-)

Devika: It was 1969 when I joined Finnish Radio Officer's Union. Nowadays there are no more any Radio Officers, and we changed our name. Finnish Telecommunications Union. I'm the chairman.

Our people working with computers, as I also did, but now I'm retired from that. I am the chairman up to 2014. (Elected again last spring...)

All this means sometimes traveling to Helsinki (=capital) etc.

Devika said...

Oh! nice to know, Tikkis...and congrats on the re-election :)

this talk reminds me of my father..he was a trade union leader for the CPI in Kerala Transport Service and some other private and public organisations-since the late 60s until his death in 2003,

it's always nice to meet a poet who is socially and/or politically involved... that's why i asked :)
