UNA NOCHE DE VERANO/MIDSUMMER NIGHT

Una noche de verano
no necesariamente debe ser en verano.
Cuando la piel se une a las manos
vaciando de palabras la oscuridad
y un puñal de fuego se clava en el pecho...
una noche de verano puede suceder en la noche más helada del invierno.

Pero cuando una daga de hielo pasa zumbando cerca de tu oido,
cuando tus uñas se aferraron a la piedra
pero el agua igual te arrastró,
y cuando Atenas no es Atenas...
una noche de verano puede transformarse en la noche más fria del invierno.

Y en ambos casos estarás perdido.
Tú dejaste de ser tú.

¿Quién te mintió acerca de las noches de verano?
No seas ingenua, una noche de verano ni siquiera es necesario que sea de noche...
...cierra las cortinas, por favor.


A midsummer night
not necessarily be in the summer.
When the skin is coupled with the hands
emptying of words the darkness
and a fire knife stabs in the chest...
A midsummer night can happen in the coldest winter night.

But when an ice dagger whizzes around your ear,
when your nails clung to the stone
but the water just dragged you,
and when Athens is not Athens...
a summer night can turn into the coldest night of winter.

And in both cases you will be missed.
You stop being you.

Who lied to you about summer nights?
Don't be naive, a summer night is not even required to be at night ...
...close the curtains, please.

Con cerrar las cortinas, puede ser la mejor noche, aunque sean las tres de la tarde.

Bello poema,te saludo desde mi invierno que hace castañear dientes a tu verano con claveles.

Dear Roberto, you keep amazing me with always beautiful visions, never boring, fresh, and in your own special style. Your sun and moon and stars keep shining.
That header is great! xx

This is genius ! You make a very good point when saying : "A midsummer night
not necessarily be in the summer." Very wise words!
Interesting image , Roberto! I feel better now, after seeing so many stars in a few last days during fever with my eyes open !

And : " a summer night is not even required to be at night ..."

this makes my day today, thanks !

I feel better, having a cup of tea with honey , some aspirin, great!

Anoche fue viernes, hacía calor y yo tenía 20 años.

Qué felicidad saber que algunas noches, el milagro sucede.




Qué más querés que te diga: me en-can -tó.

Pato dijo...

Es de noche y hace frío, mucho frío, demasiado frío


afuera


aquí, dentro de mi hay calor y si quiero puedo dibujar un sol naciendo o estrellas o arcoiris o pájaros en vuelo

abro y cierro las cortinas cuando quiero =)

(me encantó poema e ilustración)

Besos

indira lakhsmita dijo...

(in a good way, of course...)

indira lakhsmita dijo...

(you can ask Madame, she knows :D She is a midsummer night angel in midsummer day, i think!)

I got it. The first cup is with tea. The second one is tea with honey.And the last one hot red wine with honey!

art is jok(k)e(n) dijo...

or is it in the cup magic elixir of youth? you look so young now, on the page of your Datos personales!!

art is jok(k)e(n) dijo...

you make me laugh !!! But I knew it, of course. Louise told me ( she is 150 year's old). She knows a lot.

naomi orana dijo...

WOW!
I had to re-read this a few times to really absorb the words!
Which then, really made the image so much more powerful!

P.S I like your new header!

Hola, Roberto! I like your idea that it's possible to create your own Midsummer night when it's cold outside or even during a hot, sunny day. For those in love, everything's possible, yes! With other words - it depends on the emotions inside you and the atmosphere you would like to create...

But for me things are diferent. Midsummer is widely known in Bulgaria as Enyovden. According to the traditional beliefs the healing power of herbs is most stronger that day, especially before sunrise. So I connect Midsummer with herbs, meadows, beautiful wreaths and different enchanting scents. And they cannot be felt in that way at any other time of the year, no matter the circumstances, no matter hom much in love one is!:)...
I like your sky, watching us... With so many eyes - not to miss anyone, who's gazing up there, above... And because you always paint with words and speak through paintings, you just let me think: with just one blink of the sky and we have a night here..., and you have a day, there...:0)xx

rossichka dijo...

...much stronger...

Melissa Mackie dijo...

Great concept...love the stars in the eyes..:)

michele dijo...

A perfectly altered state of mind! :o)

Graciela dijo...

No lo puedo creer: ¡¡¡PUEDO COMENTAR!!!!! Se ha puesto muuuuy difícil comentar en blogger, algunos me dicen que hay que instalar el Chrome para solucionarlo???

Bueno, en fin, me gustan las noches de verano...desde Shakespeare y su "Sueño en una noche de verano", que podría ser el título de tu obra, además.
Muy Magritte esta obra, me encanta.

MiKa Art dijo...

Wow, this is really powerful! (Both the poem and the illustration!)
