Wislawa Szymborska | Love at First Sight / Amore a prima vista

They’re both convinced
that a sudden passion joined them.
Such certainty is beautiful,
but uncertainty is more beautiful still.

Since they’d never met before, they’re sure
that there’d been nothing between them.
But what’s the word from the streets, staircases, hallways -
perhaps they’ve passed by each other a million times?

Jane DeDecker, 1961 | Figurative sculptor

Jane DeDecker has been sculpting the human figure for over thirty-five years. She seeks to capture moments that reveal truths about the human condition, that, when stripped down to their essence, are understood intrinsically.
As a figurative sculptor, she communicates emotional experience through lyrical compositions that move the viewer.
DeDecker’s sculptures stop life in mid-sentence - somewhere between inhaling and exhaling - and gives it form. She tells a story through the simple moments that imprint our lives and define us.

Emily Dickinson | I Fear a man of frugal speech / Temo l'uomo di poche parole

Poem 543

I fear a Man of frugal Speech
I fear a Silent Man
Haranguer I can overtake
Or Babbler entertain

Temo un uomo di poche parole
temo un uomo che tace
l'arringatore - posso superarlo
il chiacchierone - posso intrattenerlo.

Emily Dickinson | Heart! We will forget him! / Cuore! Lo dimenticheremo!

Heart! We will forget him!
You and I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light!

Cuore! Lo dimenticheremo!
Tu ed io, questa notte!
Tu potrai dimenticare il calore che dava -
Io dimenticherò la luce!

Francine Van Hove, 1942

Frida Kahlo | I'm not asking you to kiss me / Non ti chiedo di darmi un bacio

I'm not asking you to kiss me,
nor apologize to me when I think you're wrong.
I won't even ask you to hug me when I need it most.

I don't ask you to tell me how beautiful I am,
even if it's a lie, nor write me anything beautiful.

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera

Alda Merini /Anne-Christine Roda | A tutte le donne!


Fragile, opulenta donna, matrice del paradiso
sei un granello di colpa
anche agli occhi di Dio
malgrado le tue sante guerre
per l'emancipazione.
