Sow me amid clouds / Siémbrame entre nubes

Howling into the darkness
a voice of light, impetus
leading to an ephemeral
heaven . Oh, that light
among vague memories
that fails to give birth
into a new age!
Luminous sound
in a sailing boat,
traveling luminaire…
Sow me amid clouds
lest I miss the Sun,
so I can embrace
the light of my destiny…
Aúlla en la oscuridad
una voz de luz, ímpetu
conduciendo a un cielo
efímero. Oh, aquella luz
entre vagos recuerdos
que no termina de parir
a una nueva era!
Sonido luminoso
en un barco de vela,
luminaria viajera…
Siémbrame entre nubes
para que no me falte el Sol,
y así poder abrazar
la luz de mi destino…
