O Oceano

Ficou lá, em pé, nas pedras, contemplando o oceano. Esse oceano que tocou tantas praias, onde tantos sonhos foram sonhados, em tantas diferentes línguas. Esse oceano ao qual se sentiu tão ligado, seu parceiro de outras vidas, tão familiar, tão misterioso. Para ele, desconhecido.
Lá permaneceu, parado, olhando fixamente, observando as rítmicas idas e vindas. Sentia-se atraído por sua intensidade, pelo movimento das ondas. Tentava entender o porquê. Ouvia atentamente seus sons.
Imaginava o prazer de sentir-se coberto por suas águas, sentindo sua temperatura, subermergindo em sua profundidade, deixando seu corpo ser carregado pelas correntes. Podia adivinhar as correntes, profundas correntes.
Nadadores enfrentavam tais correntes. Ele já vira. Mergulhando das pedras, eles se jogavam. Com suas primeiras braçadas furiosas, confrontavam as marés, domavam as correntes. Voltavam exaustos, sem fôlego e extasiados. Mas ele não era nadador. Vinha contemplando esse oceano há alguns anos. Ouvia seu…

The Ocean

He stood there, on the rocks, contemplating the ocean. This ocean that had touched so many shores, where so many dreams were dreamt, in so many different languages. This ocean to which he felt so connected, his partner from other lives,  so familiar, yet mysterious. To him, unknown. 
He remained there, standing, staring, observing the rythmic comings and goings. He was drawn to it by its intensity, the movement of the waves. He tried to understand why. He listened attentively to its sounds.

Dreams that never are

Oh, she insisted, begged, pleaded
Yet, no interest, no reply After, no explanation needed No justification could apply
It was all there in the cold stare In the blank expression of the face No other moment can compare To when alone you fall in space
She closed her eyes and heart and soul She began falling Ever slow
And I can hear her, though afar Amidst life and its demands

Take it, my friend

You should take it, my friendYour chance given by the universe  Go back to the beginning You had no past, you were free
You should take it, my friend Though weary eyes look at me  While fine lines crawl up your face And silver rays shine through your hair
Just return to that place Oh, go back to that time Peaceful you'd fall into slumber  Resting in the arms of your lover
And the dreams you had were a highway of stars Where you both could run free at the speed of the sound
