margens. violentos pesam os contornos

do rio que tudo arrasta se diz que é violento. mas ningém diz violentas as margens que o comprimem. bertolt brecht

queria fechar-se inteiro num poema lavrado em lingua ao mesmo tempo plana e plena

cada lenço de seda que se ata ¡ oh desastres das artes! a própria ceda
do lenço o desata

(…)

eu sou apenas deste mundo, isto é: estou praticamente morto, mas todo vosso: nenhures é o meu pouso.
esta é a minha elegia.
a elegia de um burro

at the still point of the turning world

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”

Burnt Norton, Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot

la luna grave e densa, como sta la luna?

“6 de novembro de 1957, a lua é para mim a alegoria da indiferença, da falta de espanto que a maior parte das pessoas tem. quem se admira ainda que ela ali esteja pendurada no firmamento? para a maior parte das pessoas ela é só um disco plano a que falta de vez em quando um bocado, uma má substituição para uma lanterna de rua. la luna grave e densa, como sta la luna?

eclipses are fascinating

@national geografic, instagram, blue blood moon

the moon’s orbit around the earth combined with the earth’s orbit around the sun means there are -at minimum- two lunar eclipses each year. they are relatively common. but this morning’s eclipse was special. a super blue blood moon eclipse. last night was nearly a “super moon” meaning that the Moon had swung relatively close to the Earth in its elliptical orbit making it brighter and seem bigger than usual. it was the second full moon in January making it also a “blue moon.” lastly the moon entered the Earth’s Umbra -its darkest shadow- so it seemed to turn red hence the “blood” part. we had a thin band of clouds at the horizon where I was this morning so the red glow faded into the dawn. Still it was a beautiful way to start the year.
