Ortigia, Siracusa

Ortigia Island, the historical center of Siracusa, Sicily. The temple of Apollo, dated to the beginning of the 6th century B.C., and street views from a night walk in the island.

Below a picture of the painting “The burial of Saint Lucy” by Caravaggio, located in the church of Santa Lucia alla Badia on the Piazza Duomo in SyracuseSicily. 

Lucia of Syracuse, CE 283—304, was killed as a Christian martyr during the Diocletian persecution. According to legend, Saint Lucy had bestowed her wealth on the poor, in gratitude for the miraculous healing of her mother. Denounced to the romans as a Christian, she refused to recant, offered her chastity to Christ, and was sentenced to be dragged to a brothel. 

She was tortured by eye-gouging, pierced by a knife in the throat and, where she fell, the church of Santa Lucia al Sepolcro in Syracuse was built.[1]  She is the patron saint of all those who suffer with eye trouble or blindness.There are some ghoulish and surreal images of this saint — but the association with blindness and light derives from the name Lucia with its Latin root luc- for light.

Régua, Douro, Portugal -Teixeira de Pascoaes

“Levanto-me da cama com gestos                                                                        semelhantes aos golpes de asa                                                                                          de um corvo rápido.

Levanto-me                                                                                                                        para saudar o dia.

Uá, uá!

Minha face afasta-me das trevas da noite                                                                            e olha para a aurora                                                                                                            que se abre.”

(5 poemas esquimós O Bebedor nocturno Poemas mudados para português – Herberto Helder Assirio e Alvim ) ”

“Mas o despertar não dissipa os sonhos; apenas lhes despe a aparência material.”

“O Marão sumiu-se, por encanto, num abismo, com as bordas remotas esfumadas: é a paisagem do Douro aparecendo, indefinida e triste, numa vasta indecisão nocturna; um vácuo enorme, onde cai a luz dos astros, como gotas de fogo numa boca monstruosa de sombra.”

“É o Douro, aflito num pesadelo, barrento e amarelo (…) apenas vejo as suas largas linhas espectralizadas, donde emana um vago e gélido terror, que é o próprio rio entremostrando ao nosso imaginar a escura lividez dos pegos mortos, síncopes de abismo em que gelam as águas torvas e medonhas.”

(Teixeira de Pascoaes – A Beira (Num relâmpago))
