Icelandic love poetry…

… and my very free translation from English into French… btw, speakin’ of freedom, Björk is right:”Freedom is the best aphrodisiac…” :)  

motto:”un ange sur la neige… –  crois-tu qu’il s’envolera loin avec toute mon appréhension, vers l’Univers des glaciers éternels?…”(Nina Björk Árnadóttir)

Pourquoi?… – Ágústina Jónsdóttir

pourquoi veux-tu coudre mon prénom dans ton cœur?…
chaque point de couture est accompagné de ton sang chaud,
de tes espoirs brisés et tous deviennent une autre blessure…
* * *
parfois… – Óskar Árni Óskarsson

un bateau de lumière traverse le sombre fjord où un portail s’ouvre brusquement entre deux mondes et l’Univers – même si vaste se rappelle bien de toi qu’il arrive à t’embrasser…

motto:”an angel in the snow… – do you think it will fly away with all my fear, to the Universe of the eternal glaciers?…”(Nina Björk Árnadóttir)

why?… – Ágústina Jónsdóttir

why do you want to sew my name within your heart?…
each stitch is accompanied by your warm blood,
your shattered hopes and everything turns into another injury…
* * *
sometimes… – Óskar Árni Óskarsson

a bright boat crosses the dark fjord where a gate suddenly opens between two worlds
and the Universe – although so vast recalls you so much that it gets to kiss you…

  1. I like Björk and her words!

  2. Nice! i’ve shared you on my Facebook page! Wonderful look at Iceland.

  3. Sunteţi două jumătăţi ale unui întreg şi, privindu-vă, simt starea de pereche. De ce ţi-a cusut numele acolo? pentru că e locul în care i-ai crescut, pe inimă, şi sunt atâţia ani de-atunci încât mă faci să cred că dragostea veşnică nu’i nici iluzie şi nici utopie.

    • “Aimer, ce n’est pas se regarder l’un l’autre, c’est regarder ensemble dans la même direction…”(St-Exupéry) – da, nici iluzie, nici utopie, ci realitate concreta – de vreo 3 decenii juma’…

  4. Stunning photos… and I love the line: why do you want to sew your name within your heart?… each stitch is accompanied by your warm blood, your shattered hopes and everything turns into another injury…

    • Thanx, Carol! Iceland is an absolute must-see/visit, ’cause it’s simply UNIQUE! It was quite delicate and hard both my English and French translation(s), as I did try to keep the spirit of the Icelandic poet(s)… P.S. We plan to spend more time between Iceland and Japan – after we retire… :)

  5. Reblogged this on Forget the Viagra, Pass Me a Carrot and commented:
    Stunning in any language and very romantic too. Thanks Melanie for a wonderful trip through the fjords.

  6. Merci pour le partage de ces paysages grandioses!
