Stone Flower

FOR THE LOVE OF LITERATURE ,NATURE, THE ARTS AND GOD

Because I love Jaoa Gilberto, samba music, Latin America and this English translation of Eu Vim Da Bahia by J.C. Schutz :

I came
I came from Bahia to sing
I came from Bahia to bring out
the beauty it left within me
This is where my heart always will be
With my land, with my sky and my sea
My Bahia is here to let us learn
to live our life without concern

It’s where people don’t have food to eat
But we’re friendly and happy to greet you
with hope and with faith
We know that the arms of the saints
keep us safe
and help us to sing and take pride
When we dance samba they’re on our side
When we’re dying of joy
In street celebrations,
In rhythmical glee
And in moon contemplations
At the edge of the sea

I came from Bahia
But I’m gonna return
I came from Bahia
One of these days I’m gonna return

good company

brightlightsloudnoises:

i don’t have time
for those
who have time
for casual conversation

i want to sit silently
with the wild,
the nymphomaniacs,
the drunks,
the lonely
and distracted;

those
who don’t have
time to speak
because
the passion is eating them alive

My Sun

You’ll never be anything like a woman

With tender qualities

And a soft-natured spirit.

That is okay…

 

You won’t move

In undulating movements

That are lovely like

Tree leaves in the breeze.

It is okay…

 

You’re still and static

Like the sun

Rich and modest

Like a Buddhist monk.

The morning is most delightful

For there is nothing quite as glorious

As the sun humanized in the palm of one’s hand.

 

But your frame is hard and structured,

Definitely defined with all its lines

Your body is not easily punctured

Perhaps to give sanctuary to a soul that is Divine.

 

The sun is almost oppressive

And the land is deeply sensitive,

But I love you anyway

And thus, I’ve no reason to be afraid.

Just thought this was a really pretty picture… and I really loved the movie and this scene with its’ lovely Spanish guitar sounds, and its’ trio of of beautiful actors.
