Hubert Klimko-Dobrzaniecki in B O D Y pt. 2

“This was a symphony inside the sea, yes, inside the sea, for only now did I realize that we had, in fact, come to the seaside, complete with waves and the wind, that everything around was music and that somewhere in the distance a man was swimming, swimming in the waves and in the music, the lupins began to sway in the breeze, which intensified their fragrance, and I realized I was witnessing a miracle, for this was the most beautiful sea I’d ever seen, without water or seaweed, without fish or boats. And the lupin waves of this most beautiful sea gently rocked a violinist who played and played and played.”

From Hubert Klimko-Dobrzaniecki’s novel Lullaby For A Hanged Man, translated from the Polish by Julia and Peter Sherwood.
