By faith

Parietaria officinalis. Watercolor, color pencils and acrylic ink on paper (15x21cm).



 It is by faith that poetry, as well as devotion, soars above this dull earth; that imagination breaks through its clouds, breathes a purer air, and lives a softer light.

  Είναι από καθαρή πίστη που η ποίηση, όμοια με την αφοσίωση, εκτοξεύεται πάνω από αυτήν την βαριά γη, και η φαντασία διαπερνά τα σύννεφά της, αναπνέοντας έναν καθαρότερο αέρα, και ζώντας ένα απαλότερο φως.
