The Amazon

Some of my photos from two trips I took to the Amazon back in 2010 and 2011.

About the Option
By Alcides Werk
(A Brazilian poet who lived in the city of Manaus, in the Amazon, and wrote frequently about its rivers and forest)

“A beautiful world
Of many lakes
And many rivers

A beautiful world
Of many forests
And many elementary
Lives

A beautiful world
Of many fables
And many early
Deaths

Old stories
Of water and forests

Man an earth

Earth tired of 
So many years
Of exploitation
Of the forests
The streets
The minds

Man is tired of 
Walking through time
Alone, alone
In the middle of the forest
By the edge of the river
All old stories
Of water and forests

Man and earth

I sing for all manhood

Da Opção
(Por Alcides Werk)
(Poeta Brasileiro que viveu em Manaus, no Amazonas, e escreveu vários trabalhos sobre os rios e floresta da área)

Um belo mundo 
de muitos lagos 
de muitos rios.

Um belo mundo 
de muitas matas 
de muitas vidas
elementares.

Um belo mundo
 de muitas lendas
de muitas mortes 
antecipadas.

Velhas estórias
de água e florestas.

O homem e a terra.

A terra cansando 
dos anos compridos 
de extrativismo
na selva
no rio
na rua
na mente.

O homem cansado 
de andar pelo tempo 
sozinho sozinho
no meio da mata
na beira do rio
à margem da vida.
Velhas estórias
de água e florestas.

O homem e a terra.

Eu canto para o homem.
Thanks a lot for visiting my galleries.
