Alejandro Jodorowsky – Giardino chiuso / A closed garden

Edgar Degas, Young Woman with Ibis, 1862

A closed garden is the sparkling empire of the heart
inside the arcane the treasure is shielded
and bears fruit in the silence of love
you catch the extraordinary bird by giving up its hunt.

(Transl. by D. Foglia)

Giardino chiuso l’impero scintillante del cuore
dentro l’arcano il tesoro non solo si conserva
ma pure fruttifica nel silenzio dell’amore
si cattura l’uccello miracoloso rinunciando a catturarlo.
