“…Vineyard becomes silvery and frost still sparkles on the reddish sunset. I draw a line without end points. Wind moves our echo among the furrows. The burned land inflames my heart without your presence… I am still trying to figure out this distance … but when you will come back, I will be here … I will recognize you through the traces left by the wind and by the sun of autumn that shines upon this strip of land … Yes, I will be here under the oaks… still writing a story that doesn’t exist. You left footprints in my heart, without the expectation of anything in return..”
