I’ve been reading some poems from the Sophia de Mello B. Andersen, she writes ethereally about the sea and life. Her poems makes us part of this immense world of magical sea creatures, sparkling corals, colorful shells and bubbling deep waters of the sea. I wish I could have more time to write, to be close to nature, to get in touch with myself that I am lately. This is causing me a terribly damage on my emotion state, my late work stoles all my energy and I just feel like sleeping every time I am returning home. Lately, I am in-between of everything.

“Our fingers will open the closed hands.” – Sophia de Mello Breyer Andersen, Coral.
Loud sea, bottomless sea, endless sea,
Your beauty grows when we’re alone.
And so deep your voice intimately
Follows the secretmost dancing of my dream
That moments are when I think
You’re a miracle created only for me.
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andersen
Mar sonoro, mar sem fundo, mar sem fim.
A tua beleza aumenta quando estamos sós
E tão fundo intimamente a tua voz
Segue o mais secreto bailar do meu sonho.
Que momentos há em que eu suponho
Seres um milagre criado só para mim.
SOPHIA DE MELLO BREYNER ANDRESEN
In Dia do mar, 1947
