areia sentida

Enterrar as mãos
apertá-la entre os dedos
e deixá-la esvair-se…

Senti-la na pele…

Morna,
terrena,
na sua macieza agreste
e na sua eternidade…

Areia na pele…
areia no pensamento…

…ou a minha incapacidade
de entender a sua atracção,
se na pequenez de um pequeno grão
se na sua infinidade!

(Dulce Delgado, poema antigo, não datado…mas sempre actual!)

  1. Ah, you brought back that wonderful sensation of warm sand on the beach, in the hand, and between the toes. How I love it! And yes, it’s both the tiny individual grains and the infinity of their number that makes ti compelling, plus the pure sensations. Thank you. 🙂
