Imago lacus

The picture above was taken by a dear friend, the American poet Debra Kang Dean (please do not use it without permission). I met Debra three years before, when I went to Walden to work with his late husband Brad, a great Thoreau scholar. Once we spent hours tracking this quotation: "Some men go fishing all their lives without ever realizing it's not fish they are after." We concluded that Thoreau never wrote it, but si non è vero...

Habanera




Mila zortzirehun ta hamairu
bandera jarri zituzten
ta San Telmo Museoan
iragana da erakusten

bandera trapu zaharrak
baino ez direla dioten
horiek ez dakite ziur
zenbat bandera daukaten

ez gara bizi maketan
Donostian jaio ginen
merkatagune bat Bretxan
gure hutsuneak betetzen


eskerrak lagunekin
hauxe ikasi genuen
trapuen erabilpena
gure geroa ehuntzen.

(Urmarako lagunei)
