Greece * Delphi * Tholos Temple to Goddess Athena

 

Bewildered

 

Jumping through the greatness of its rests,

the white and shiny lights of the sky and earth

trapped us...

as sudden, as brilliant as frightening...

as lucid madness.

 

- Come with me, come with me, come with me...

- You lead.

The others scaped.

But may it only seems it does not exist.

Sorpresa

 

Saltando entre la grandeza de sus restos,

las blancas y brillantes luces del cielo y tierra

nos atraparon...

Tan rápido, tan brillante, tan temible...

como la lúcida locura.

 

- Ven conmigo, ven conmigo, ven conmigo...

- Tú guías.

Los demás escaparon.

Quizás en apariencia.

The Gods of Delphi


The Gods appeared like invisible steals
In another plane to which our blind eyes
Don’t dare to reach…


They observed us with curiosity,
Far their powers seemed to be
of any influence,
as power only exists
when followers it has.


They looked at us

from the highest rests of Delphi,
with fear for the destiny
of Gods of nothing…


Trapped now in the ruins
of their remembrances,
they tried to inspire the imagination
of those humans
who abstracted they seemed,
or those who carried with them enough skills…


As if alike beings they were searching,
in order to feel a breath of life…

Los dioses de Delfi


Los dioses aparecían como estelas invisibles
en otro plano al que nuestros ciegos ojos
no alcanzaban...


Nos observaban curiosos,
lejanos sus poderes parecían
de influencia alguna,
pues el poder tan solo existe
cuando seguidores se le suman…


Nos miraban desde lo alto
de los restos de Delfi,
sobrecogidos por el destino
de unos dioses de la nada…


Atrapados ahora en los restos
de sus recuerdos,
trataban de inspirar la imaginación
de aquellos humanos a quienes
abstraidos veían,
o a quienes dotes portaban…


Como si semejantes en vida buscaran
para sentir un álito de vida…
