  • Diaphanous Clarity - Diáfana Claridade

    - 3 days ago - 11 comments
    Sun emotional appeal to my daily wit diaphanous clarity that slowly gets away by nightfall and leaves the mystery of life so intense and present that I stay static astonished by my compelling shadow of light.

    Blue Fascination Where I Dive
    Suddenly the anguish of not having you dominates me my eyes look at the illuminated mountain's outline far away till the limit of liquid and mineral reflections where goes my thought towards dream while I smoke my pipe that reminds me many rooms where we made love till the resting bodies clearness in the sky blue fascination where I dive when I should carry on my work. Súbito a aflição de não te ter domina-me por intantes meus olhos fitam o contorno da montanha il…

    Benfica, remains of an old farm (1)
    A sunray slips down by ruined walls of the house ahead and stupidly also into my thought as there was nothing more important to do in this right moment. Uma réstea de sol desliza nas paredes arruinadas da casa em frente e estupitadamente também no meu pensamento como se nada houvesse mais importante a fazer neste preciso momento.…

    Lisboa, 4th floor (2)
    Feel the hard and hot sun irradiating from the shop window's glasses and coaches parked on all lanes or sidewalks at the Benfica's avenue where I live close to the Park of Monsanto shades on the other side of the building's forest where the halo of passed rains refreshes my memory.
