La felicità nel sorriso altrui (Italian Edition) by Raoul Vecchio

By Raoul Vecchio

Dal finestrino entrava una rossastra polvere di sabbia che pian piano occupava i polmoni, le narici e le orecchie. Si depositava sugli occhi arrossandoli, sulla pelle e sui vestiti, rendendomi un tutt’uno con quella terra che sentivo sempre più legata al mio corpo, al mio cuore.
Mi voltavo a destra e a sinistra immerso in un oceano di stelle che danzavano elegantemente, mentre perle infantili posavano delicatamente su di me il loro sguardo sorridendo della mia emotività. Una advert una queste stelle cadevano dal cielo donandomi un raggio di sole, un sorriso, un grido o un ballo, senza mai sfiorare l. a. mia pelle ma stringendo con un abbraccio il mio cuore.
Tra i palmi di quella stretta di mano da cui tutto ebbe inizio c’era già un intero universo fatto di 80.000 anime e 80.000 cuori.
