about

This new year's eve I saw an acoustic guitar, felt in love and brought her home.
Then learnt she was made of sycamore, a dark red-orange resistant wood native of Africa and naturally growing also in some regions of the Middle East.
The Sycamore tree is present in ancient Egyptian and Jewish myths as a symbol for immortality: linked to the ancient deity Hathor, used to build sarcophaguses as the inside of the plant could hold the body on its transition to the netherworld....

A new song came out, engendered by these stories and by the radiance of this material, my little way to thank and celebrate this sacred plant:
Sycamore Tree.

lyrics

SYCAMORE TREE

when was your birth?
I know no numbers
I see just pictures
floating upward

Where is your star?
which your lineage?
and the whys
of your flight?

why you lower your head
and crying
you march away?

where are the grey ashes
that have costed you
so many lives?

go and hang your story
onto the sycamore tree
it will sing it
seven times to the wind

go and give your full body
to its long wise arms

oh sycamore tree,
lull it gently,
give it to the seven winds

as I touch its old skin
I hear of the day
of your revelation
elevation
dissolution
return,

sighing
