It was a quite nice Sunday, totally in line with tomorrow 14th February celebration. I had to write an article about Saint Valentine day for a magazine and in order to get some useful inspiration I decided to search for an old cd that Katarina once labeled as very depressive. Maybe, could be. However, I’ve found it and it was, especially one song, my Sunday’s soundtrack. The cd is “Let’s talk about love” and the singer is one of my favorites, Celine Dion.
I believe in love as emotion that should be celebrated every day not just on 14th February. And as the song says: ” There are people around the world - different faces different names. But there's one true emotion that reminds me we're the same...” No matter where we are and who we are, the language of love is unique.
Before going to sleep I decided to share some poems that give me emotions. The first one is “Ausencia” of Jorge Luis Borges. The second one “Le jardin” of Jacques Prévert. The third one is “Iskrena pesma” of Milan Rakić.
Habré de levantar la vasta vida
que aún ahora es tu espejo:
cada mañana habré de reconstruirla.
Desde que te alejaste,
cuántos lugares se han tornado vanos
y sin sentido, iguales
a luces en el día.
Tardes que fueron nicho de tu imagen,
músicas en que siempre me aguardabas,
palabras de aquel tiempo,
yo tendré que quebrarlas con mis manos.
¿En qué hondonada esconderé mi alma
para que no vea tu ausencia
que como un sol terrible, sin ocaso,
brilla definitiva y despiadada?
Tu ausencia me rodea
como la cuerda a la garganta,
el mar al que se hunde.
Let’s talk about love not only tomorrow but every day of our lives. Love is, remember, one that makes the world go around.
