La Quimera

Today, a little inspiration, to not forget the flowers blooming right at our feet...

La Quimera 

Like children I walked to East, believing

I could touch the sun with my own hands;

Like children I walked through the round earth

chasing, far away, the solar chimera. 

I was at the same distance from the golden East

as much as I walked and walked again; 

So I did like children: feeling the uselessness of the march 

I picked up flowers from the ground, and started playing.
