The streets are filled with people, residents and visitors, in a rush to see the most in the less time. No alley was left behind, every path has rich and colorful ornaments, made from small paper flowers. For months everyone has been working hard to bring color to town.
Sadly, my eyes are tired, over the years they’ve seen many feast-days, all I see now are hurried shadows. Some doing last minute arrangements, others just admiring it all.
Once I’ve helped to build the people’s festivity, today my cane is my companion, the flowers live in my curtains. I’ll be here reviving the old days, when I was part of the party, when life and joy ran in my blood vessels.

 

Old Man

Old Man

As ruas estão cheias de pessoas que circulam, residentes e visitantes, na ânsia de verem o máximo no mínimo tempo. Nenhum beco foi deixado para trás, todas as vias estão ornamentadas com pequenos pedaços coloridos de flores de papel. Durante meses a população trabalhou duro para trazer a côr de volta à cidade.
Os meus olhos estão cansados, já viram muitas festas, agora veem as sombras apressadas. Algumas fazendo arranjos de ultima hora, outros apenas admirando.
Outrora eu ajudei nos preparativos da festa do povo, hoje tenho a bengala como companheira, as minhas flores vivem nas cortinas. Aqui fico revivendo os anos passados, quando eu era parte da festa, quando a alegria e a vida corriam dentro de mim.

(Rossana Ferreira)
