We are the famous metaphor from Heraclitus the Obscure


Kayak on the Derwent. May, 2010.

One day – I promise – I will kayak to work. What’s the point of living next to a river estuary if one does not kayak to work?

We are the time. We are the famous, Jorge Luis Borges

We are the time. We are the famous
metaphor from Heraclitus the Obscure.

We are the water, not the hard diamond,
the one that is lost, not the one that stands still.

We are the river and we are that greek
that looks himself into the river. His reflection
changes into the waters of the changing mirror,
into the crystal that changes like the fire.

We are the vain predetermined river,
in his travel to his sea.

The shadows have surrounded him.
Everything said goodbye to us, everything goes away.

Memory does not stamp his own coin.

However, there is something that stays
however, there is something that bemoans.
