LES EYZIES


“The poet existed among the cave men;
he will exist among men of the atomic age,
for he is an inherent part of man.
Even religions have been born from the need for poetry,
which is a spiritual need, and it is through the grace of poetry
that the divine spark lives forever in the human flint.”
 

~ Saint-John Perse ~

EQUOS

 
“Perhaps we become aware of our existence only when
we feel on our skin the touch of a place that has no name,
that connects us to the earliest time, to all the dead, to prehistory,
when the mind first stood apart from the world,
still unaware that it was orphaned…”

 

~ Andrzej Stasiuk ~
