Leave Me at the Shore

IMG_6665

“If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms 
and my roots will set off 
to seek another land. 

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.”
[Excerpt from IF YOU FORGET ME. NERUDA]

      I get scared when people ask me to draw them because they always expect it to look so exact.. too much pressure/not enough freedom in the drawing! Thank you for reading my blog 🙂

      Thank you so much. But, maybe you can! Have you ever tried? I hadn’t painted until just last year. Then I fell in love with it! Give it a try, you never know.. 🙂

        I received a C in art class. The teacher was kind. To be able to draw and write poetry and story. You are lucky.
