Kjell Espmark: 'Naturen här är skapad av ljus'


Nature here is made up of light,

silver-white in silver-white,

and naturally weighs nothing.

The mountains still with a trace of blue

do not reach down to the ground

and the copse’s trees have no roots.

My house does not even have windows

and the owner’s name has been erased –

why remember the painter Aguéli?

The people in the village are transparent

as is God’s breath. One also senses

that landscape and the faces are synonymous.

It’s only a question of looking with the heart.
