The Eldest Brother by saprophilous The Eldest Brother by saprophilous
The eldest brother:

He was so pale,

so much so

when you tried to recall his image

it was nothing more than a shine

white as the sand upon the deepest ocean beds

untouched by the sun

eternally dreaming

This is so beautiful. I love the little ghosts of color here and there, the mistiness of it all.

Wow thank you, that is quite flattering... very much appreciated.
I was wondering, what is the meaning of your signature? *smile* I looked into your gallery
You have very nice portraits and captured moments... I love photography which does not look staged.. so that it brings out the true essence of a moment. Lovely

Flattering that you took your time to see my work, thank ypu very much for that.

My signature is from a Spanish poet/singer called Joaquin Sabina and it goes something like this.... he is talking about his puberty when he used to wrote "filled with hate verses against the world asnd the mirrors..."

so my signature goes something like this (and I'm going to add a little of the words before the sig so you get the context a little more and bold the sig up...)

mataba las horas rimando, en un cuaderno a rayas, versos llenos de odio contra el mundo y los espejos. El mundo, lejos de sentirse aludido, seguía girando [que es lo suyo], desdeñoso, sin importarle un carajo mi existencia. Y los espejos, cabrones, en vez de consolarme con mentiras más o menos piadosas, me sostenían cruelmente la mirada.

"I killed the hours rhyming on a school notebook, verses filled with hate against the world and the mirrors. The world, far from feeling bad about it, kept turning [that's what it does], without giving a fuck about my existence. And the mirrors, assholes, instead of consoling me with white lies, stared back with cruelty at me."

the translation may be a little raw, but I hope you get the picture, thanks a lot for your comment and for looking at my stuff... really.
