Like Smoke in Air

Grady Echegaray, February 11, 2011

They who live asleep

will never waken fame,

and their desire and all their lives

drift past them like a dream,

 and the traces of their memory fade from time

like smoke in air,

 or ripples on a stream.

    I initially read that as “less burn”, and was about to commend you for your sensible asbestos-laden fashion choice, but that would have been just plain silly. 😀

    Beautiful pics, from one who is very clearly not asleep.
