Recuerdos de Rabones, Chile, Paintings by Clina Polloni

The Valley of RabonesRabones is a valley of dreams located in the mountains of the central region of Chile.

I lived for 10 years in our farm called “Las Puertas de Rabones”. I was close to God, to nature and to animals. Memories of golden sunny days, enjoying the company of beautiful people with spirits as clear as the crystal waters of “Rio Putagan” running through the fertile land. I learned about their culture, their traditions and the purity of their lives.

Casa Campesina en Rabones

Summer Evenings in Rabones

As the sun sets
on a summer day
on a gold country road,
Campesinos go back home
guided by the aroma
of the fresh baked bread.

Hello!. Good Bye!... it’s time to rest
children gather around the red flame of the fire
Grandma tells stories of long ago
Grandpa carefully rolls his cigar
time for family and a cup of matte.

The night will soon fall
in the valley of Rabones.

The Old Man Chair in Rabones

The Old Man’s Chair

Weaving wicker was his trade
in the Valley of “Rabones”.

He collected the long green spikes
from the fertile bank of the river,
weaving straw by straw,
under the shade of a friendly tree.
golden rays of summer sun,
embraced his inspiration
with intricate and creative designs.

One Summer evening we went to his home,
where the old man was sitting in his chair,
smoking his cigar with a worm cup
of fresh mate in his hand.

He told stories about his children,
and how they left the valley long ago.
We asked...Can we buy your chair?
and the old man said “NO!...This is my chair...
but today I finished the last of four chairs
and I would be happy to sell you those”.
So we bought them all.

The next day we went back to
the old man’s house,
but the chair was empty.

Letters from Rabones:

Estimada Clina:

Con alegria recorde momentos tempranos de nuestras vidas al explorar en la web y colocar la palabra "rabones" para informar a unos amigos extranjeros donde podrian pasar sus vacaciones.

Me encontre con la grata sorpresa y le comente a mi mama (la hija mayor de la Sra Armandina casada con Raul Muñoz, tus ex vecinos) que tu tenias una pagina donde retratastes en forma tan poetica con fotos y textos tal cual es ese pedazo de terruño precordillerano nuestro querido Rabones donde pasabamos las vacaciones, que a pesar de no ser una maravilla desde el punto de vista productivo es un lugar que es acogedor donde la tierra es amable en todo el sentido de la palabra, recorde en las fotos a la Canela y a Liberty, al sonido del viento, el cantar de los pajaros, el constante traqueteo de las carretas adornadas por la veta negra del carbon. Recuerdo las pinturas llenas de amor donde plasmabas toda tu sensibilidad. La verdad que siempre estuve con las ganas de agradecerte las atenciones a mis abuelos bueno y no podia perder esta oportunidad para hacerlo. Un abrazo

Patricio Guerrero Muñoz
