Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony

Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony

A small poem and a some photos from my time at the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony at City Hall, Oslo, 12 December 2015. The longer write-up is done but on hold.

 

In the Name of Peace

Alfred’s birthday had a strong breeze

From Norskies én camera, no need to please

Dissidents, heros, mothers and more

2015, from Tunisia these four

To love thy neighbor is not too much to ask, please

 

 

Early, no crowd yet.
