My small town, where I grew up - piccola cittá

Small town, my strange dear old friend, I know you...
fog and smoke, the smell of memory, purple glass, first days of school, the rueful smell of religion
faces, pains and seasons, loves and talking brick, silly adolescence, stupid and false innocence, unhappy puberty cried often softly
small town, old girl...
street corner's witnesses of my erotic dreams,
frustrations and loves never understood...
Small towns, old courtyards...
Spring dreams, rhymes and faiths youth, I cry but I do not regret your powder, your mud, your lives,
your stones, gold and marble, so different are you now, I am always the same, always different...

ps: I'm back


 from my photo album of these last days in Italy

Piccola cittá, cara strana vecchia amica, io ti conosco...
fumo e nebbia, odore di ricordi, vetrate viola, primi gioni della scuola, il mesto odore di religione,
facce, dolori e stagioni, amori e mattoni che parlano, stupida adolescenza, falsa e stupida innocenza, pubertá infelice spesso urlata a mezza voce
Piccola cittá, vecchia bambina...
angoli di strada testimoni degli erotici miei sogni,
frustrazioni e amori mai compresi...
Piccola cittá, vecchi cortili...
sogni primaverili, rime e fedi giovanili, piango, ma non rimpiango la tua polvere il tuo fango le tue vite i tuoi sassi, oro e marmo, cosí diversa sei adesso, io sono sempre lo stesso, sempre diverso...

ps: sono tornata

liebe und herzliche Grüße von Jasmin, der Sommer neigt sich dem Ende zu, so denke ich, daß bei deiner Abreise aus der alten Heimat ein wenig Wehmut und leise Traurigkeit aber schöne Erinnerungen und neue Erlebnisse mit zurück auf Reisen gingen...

Já estava com saudades de ver "algo" e mutivante.
E aqui está um registo que só por si é marcante o momento e o registo.
Gostei muito de todo o enquadramento e textura.
Obrigado por continuares e podermos desfrutar dos teus sentimentos e momentos.
Até sempre.

Home can be confusing, can't it? "so different are you now, I am always the same, always different..." It is as though we are both living creatures. I think of those stacking egg cups, one inside the other. It is as though we are the larger and the smaller, and home too holding us, and in its way inside of us as well. Inside, outside, we both pulse and grow, retract. It is a very organic experience going home.

Ciao Laura, la visita al tuo blog mi ha confermato quello che avevo intuito quando avevo visto i tuoi lavori nella personale sul blog di Carla, hai proprio l'arte nel sangue.
Molto belle e sentite anche le parole che hai dedicato al Tuo paese.

bondearte said...

Ciao Laura,
Mi è piaciuto molto questa foto, i suoi piedi toccare le foglie e la terra,
tutti possiamo cambiare il tuo indirizzo, ma la città e il luogo dove nacque
rimane nella nostra mente, l'odore della terra, il colore delle foglie degli alberi, queste immagini non potrà mai essere cancellato dalla nostra memoria ..
Guardia di queste immagini con voi e quando manca la tua città, queste immagini vi aiuterà a ricordare e sarà molto più facile:)
Congratulazioni
Paulo

LE CHEMIN DES GRANDS JARDINS said...

Très beau texte, empli de poésie et de nostalgie. Revenir sur son passé, si ce n'est pas un exercice quotidien(!) est toujours utile car les souvenirs aident aussi à construire l'avenir...
Autre chose :je me suis toujours demandé pourquoi les gens se photographient les pieds. Cela ne me dérange pas, au contraire, je trouve cela amusant.
Belle journée à toi,

Roger
