Twilight

Humans are weird
They waste time on trifles
And they forget that life is made of simple things
Sometimes, the hardest to learn is the least complicated.

Sweet dreams

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see, but it is impossible. Humans hide their secrets too well….

René Magritte

If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream.

Summer I

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.

Francis Scott Fitzgerald

Spring being a tough act to follow, God created June.

Before sunset

Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.

There is nothing more musical than a sunset.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live, but it does come with trees, sunsets, smiles and laughter, so enjoy your day.

Debbie Shapiro

There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.

Sunset is so marvelous that even the sun itself watches it every day in the reflections of the infinite oceans!

Mehmet Murat Ildan

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.

Street art

An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.

James McNeill Whistler

The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel.

Freedom

Reprise

I follow the path alone
Listening to the silence
Whispering my dreams
To the nature around me
The sea clears my mind
The fresh grass gives me hope
On a future as bright as the sun
And beautiful like the blue sky
For the fist time, I am free again.

Hard as a rock

Don’t worry about me
Just wait and see
I’m as hard as a rock
Always around the clock
My spirit is sharpen
And my body protected by an iron curtain
Family and friends are my safe haven
Keep dreaming you’re in heaven
I’ll protect the ones I love…always
Life sends me signs in mysterious ways
I embrace the unknown
Because I am as hard as a stone.

Shadows

Before going to school
Before taking the bus to work
Before the town awakens
Before all the noise and fuss
Before the warm sun heats me
Before the waves swallow the sand
Before the seals fly over the coast
Before the moon kisses the sun
Before the shadows dissipate
Before the whole day takes me
I’m enjoying the silence.

Secret beach

Golden sand
Shells in my hand
Deep see
Come with me
Foamy waves
I can almost hear the whales
Cool breeze
No worries, please!
Seagulls flying
Keep trying
Hidden treasures
My life is all that matters
Bare feet
You are so sweet
Golden silence
Freedom is my guidance.
