Pablo Neruda / Benito Cerna ~ Perche' tu possa ascoltarmi.. /So that you will hear me..

Benito Cerna, 1960 ~ Figurative painter

Perché tu possa ascoltarmi le mie parole
si fanno sottili, a volte,
come impronte di gabbiani sulla spiaggia.
Collana, sonaglio ebbro
per le tue mani dolci come l'uva.
E le vedo ormai lontane le mie parole.
Più che mie sono tue.
Come edera crescono aggrappate al mio dolore antico.
Così si aggrappano alle pareti umide.
E' tua la colpa di questo gioco cruento.
Stanno fuggendo dalla mia buia tana.
Tutto lo riempi tu, tutto lo riempi.

- "I started to paint a long time ago, I don not remember exactly when, what I remember is always there were paintings in my home.. why?
My mother is an artist like my father, my uncle, my aunt… unfortunately not too much people knows about them, well it was impossible to choose another thing to do, I always enjoyed make copies from famous artists and now I like to do realistic paintings to imitate the texture of the skin, the shadows, the lights. I feel a great satisfaction when I finish a painting besides it is not a easy work to do".
