the pure truth

The act of writing requires that there be the act of reading,
Which happens rarely in tune.
The writing and reading are soul mates and can not survive without the other.
And what is the most difficult of the writing?
It not reach the soul of the person who reads.
It not means nothing to the person who reads,
It is something unforgivable to the writing.
But writing has its limitations:
It can not show images in sequence,
Much less mind-blowing sounds of different shades.
However, it has its strengths:
To involve the reader in his own imagination,
In his own imaginary world.

Eduardo Santos

Eduardo Santos's picture

I am a brazilian poet. I believe that we should learn to feel the essential, no more and no less, just the essential.
