CARACOL

A Antonio Machado.

En la playa he encontrado un caracol de oro
macizo y recamado de las perlas más finas;
Europa le ha tocado con sus manos divinas
cuando cruzó las ondas sobre el celeste toro.

He llevado a mis labios el caracol sonoro
y he suscitado el eco de las dianas marinas;
le acerqué a mis oídos, y las azules minas
me han contado en voz baja su secreto tesoro.

Así la sal me llega de los vientos amargos
que en sus hinchadas velas sintió la nave Argos
cuando amaron los astros el sueño de Jasón;

y oigo un rumor de olas y un incógnito acento
y un profundo oleaje y un misterioso viento...
(El caracol la forma tiene de un corazón.)

Rubén Darío

Very beautiful colors. I love this one, so sweet and humble, just tightly coiled and oh so pretty. Very fine details.

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

As much as the texture of these shells,
I find I am enjoying the precise detail of the fabrics on which they rest. :-)

QB from Victoria, Canada

Lovely details, beautiful colours, and a great poem -- with truly remarkable meter/rhythm. Of course, my tongue pauses and stumbles in all the wrong places. :) But I imagine I hear the waves (and the flap of sails in the wind) in the rhythm, and the hiss of the ocean in all those "s" sounds.

Love the photo, too. The details are fantastic, and it really shows us: "El caracol la forma tiene de un corazón."

Paco, una imagen pletórica de detalles y hoy, además, acompañada de unos versos que no conocia que creo se adaptan bien al homenajeado con su eterno reposo junto al mar. Saludos,

Los detalles y los colores son impresionantes Paco. He visto que hace unos días que tus fotos son tipo bodegón o naturaleza muerta. No sé muy bien lo que me sugieren estas imagenes... quizás he de esperar a ver. Un saludo.
