«Song of the Flower»-, por Khalil Gibran

(Fotografias de Sailor Girl)
«I am a kind word uttered and repeated by the voice of Nature; I am a star fallen from the blue tent upon the green carpet. I am the daughter of the elements with whom Winter conceived, to whom Spring gave birth; I was reared in the lap of Summer and I slept in the bed of Autumn.

At dawn I unite with the breeze to announce the coming of light;

At eventide I join the birds in bidding the light farewell.

The plains are decorated with my beautiful colors, and the air is scented with my fragrance.

As I embrace Slumber the eyes of Night watch over me, and as I Awaken I stare at the sun, which is The only eye of the day.

I drink dew for wine, and hearken to The voices of the birds, and dance To the rhythmic swaying of the grass.

I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath; I am the memory of a moment of happiness; I am the last gift of the living to the dead; I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.

But I look up high to see only the light, And never look down to see my shadow. This is wisdom which man must learn.»

Ultimamente tenho andado a viver dentro de um verdadeiro "bunker", nem consigo ter acesso ao meu e-mail. Subi à superfice para arejar e senti o perfume do Atlântico Azul... eram flores. Eram flores, senhora!
