Ephemeral

EPHEMERAL

Creatures that live only for a day.

Like some insects which are fascinated by the light and they fly around it, they jump and hop and dance around it, as if they want to become one with it?

And when they finally get burned?

Like a toy train or like a carousel, figures of strange beings appear, passing by on a screen which could be our own mind, reminding us of something indefinably familiar.

Movements and shapes the body takes, as if it wants to be transformed to something else,

to say its tales, without logic, with a syncopated rhythm, as they come out, as they overflow the bucket of memory.

….all that came and all that goes, like us….. in a canon, holding hands.
