As Chamas

A minha Madeira.
As chamas do meu coração,
Só lagrimas tenho
Para as extinguir.

My response to the wicked wildfires that took control of the Island of Madeira in Aug 2016, my birthplace & spiritual home. The result of arsonists.

Madeira’s Laurisilva forest is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Funchal, its capital city, was settled in the early part of the 15th Century.



My Madeira.

The flames of my heart,

Only tears do I have 

To extinguish them.
