Quando é outono e eu

saio para uma caminhada longa
espero que você me encontre.

Céu de baunilha
o vento brinca com as folhas das árvores
e olho da minha imagem refletida
na água para a estrada à frente.

Eu sei que você caminha devagar,
mas pela primeira vez em anos
meu coração está tranquilo.


When it's autumn and I
go for long walks alone
I don't expect anyone
to find me but you.

Orange sky
the wind blows leaves off trees
I look from my reflected image
in the water to the path before me

I know
you walk slowly
but for the first time in years
my heart is calm.

  2. Eu já cansei de caminhar, porque eu sei que ele nunca vai me encontrar. Ele nem sequer deu o primeiro passo.

    Espero um dia que meu coração fique como o teu...tranquilo.

  8. I don't expect anyone
    to find me but you.

    -These lines make me think of a couple so close that they will meet even without prearranging a place and time.

  16. The painting is wonderful like your poem. Usually autumn is connected to loss, but this seems to be a different, blissful path : )

  17. A reflection in water - an image of loneliness.
    But there is in loneliness the promise of communion, of love. A reflection in water shattered by a stone.

    Sad and full of hope; also: beautiful, Kenia.
