Photographer's Note

The other day I was listening to a beautiful and moving
Putumayo´s CD The Women of Latin America.
One of the songs that pleased me the most was Lila Downs´s sweet voice
singing Icnocuicatl.

Icnocuicatl is a poem written by mexican poet
Natalio Hernández
and for me, from the very first I´ve heard it, sounded like a lullaby.
Thus, in hope

*****
The photo was made at Sabrina´s balcony last weekend.
You would enjoy best the image while listening to the song, presented below in its original language, náhuatl, and a version into english.

Mostla,
queman nehuatl nionmiquis
amo queman ximocuesco
Nican,
ocsepa nican nionhualas
cualtzin huitzitzilin
nimocuepas.
Soatzin,
queman ticonitas tonatiu
ica moyolo xionpaqui
Ompa,
Ompa niyetos ihuan totahtzin
cualtzin tlahuilli
nimitmacas.

Tomorrow,
Tomorrow when I die
I dont want you to be sad.
To this place,
to this place I will return,
in the form of a hummingbird
Woman,
when you look to the sun,
smile fondly
There,
There I will be with our father,
Good light I will send you.
