Wind Runner

serra-finaRunning on the Serra Fina, Minas Gerais, Brasil, 2015.

On the foot mountain, sounds of the footfall, breath.
One body made of runners – or climbers?
Dissolved completely.

Suddenly the vastness: Mountain Crest!
“Serra Fina” is its name
An ancient sculpture on the “Serra do Mar” system.

Life on the mountain… I could live there.
A little human being, unambitious, that I am
In a dense body which insists to pulsate…

Running, falling down, rolling on the yellow grass
Laughing, standing again. Begining the descent “ziguezagueando”
Until gain space on the road that opens.


The gap that is between
one thought and another
