Paper boats / Barcos de papel

Who cares that love is fleeting
when the roses too die young?
Today came to terms with the wind
and became wind upon your body,
drinking all of your elixir in one gulp,
in unison with you, constant, unerring,
in the breathless whisper of your voice
crossing heaven and earth, tremulously
under a shower of vivid orange blossoms
delighting the palate in their intensity,
because the souls are also fleeting
as paper boats among the waves
moving smoothly and unhurriedly
like flowers kissing on the swaying
of two worlds, where the moon shone…

¿Que importa que el amor sea fugaz
cuando las rosas también mueren jóvenes?
Hoy llegué a un acuerdo con el viento
y me convertí en viento sobre tu cuerpo
bebiéndome todo tu elixir de un sorbo
al unisono contigo, constante, infalible
en el jadeante murmullo de tu voz
Cruzando cielo y tierra, trémulamente
bajo una lluvia de vívidos azahares
deleitando el paladar en su intensidad
porque las almas son también fugaces
como barcos de papel entre las olas
moviéndonos suavemente y sin prisa
como flores que se besan en el vaivén
de dos mundos, en donde la luna brilló…

  1. Such intensity-I especially like this line” souls are also fleeting
    as paper boats among the waves”. You are so wonderful with words 🙂
