NO OTHER PURPOSE

NO OTHER PURPOSE
We threw stones
into the water to bring the silence to surface.
The world, invigorated by the senses,
then came to us all buried
in our own flesh sometimes
wrapped in fierce transparencies
that the stones incited
without no other purpose besides extravasating
the silence from the calming waters.

///

SEM OUTRO INTUITO

Atirávamos pedras
à água para o silêncio vir à tona.
O mundo, que os sentidos tonificam,
surgia-nos então todo enterrado
na nossa própria carne envolto
por vezes em ferozes transparências
que as pedras acirravam
sem outro intuito além do de extravasarem
às águas o silêncio que as unia.

by Luís Miguel NAVA (1957-1995), in "VULCÃO", Editora Quetzal, 1994

(English translated by Armando TABORDA, 2016)

Porosity of all things around us, and with us, through our sensations; it is a truly beautiful poem by Nava, he who died so young in dire circumstances;
.. words that touch deep into our psyche ..
Thank you Armando for this sensitive presentation of image and text

you are absolutely right, Leonora, it was an unexpected and criminal premature death of a great poet, in Brussels

thanks too much for your appreciation
