Apathetic shiver / Escalofrío apático

Winds of chance
under a tepid heart,
life opened its bosom
to a sad void
of fleeting stories
with dark faces,
wandering thoughts
dissolved into shade
and cinders lurking,
into the freezing dusk
of an infinite white,
welcome to your veil
invoking at the cusp
the advent of the Winter!

Vientos de azares
bajo un tibio corazón,
la vida abrió su seno
a un triste vacío
de historias fugaces
con caras oscuras,
vagando ideas
deshechas en sombra
y cenizas al acecho,
al gélido crepúsculo
de un blanco infinito,
bienvenido tu velo
invocando en la cúspide
el advenimiento del Invierno!

“In Asylum”

I am seeking asylum
my soul is bankrupt,
leap into the void
captive of a minstrel,
a thousand voices die out
among calm chains.
My eyes find no respite,
I sigh and stirred;
Rest in a chord,
on a strange climate,
submissive, uncompromising
not giving in to my sorrow
on an abstract time
seeking one letter
in Elysian fields,
into a captive mind
defoliating the system.
Pause, shelter,
do not let them oppress!
The desert also flourishes
bud shaped,
dropwise,
Sword of the wind,
errant and fiery,
Raised my voice
welcome home!

Estoy buscando asilo
mi alma esta en quiebra,
salto al vacío
cautivo del juglar,
mil voces se extinguen
entre cadenas serenas.
Mis ojos no hallan respiro,
suspiro y me agito;
Reposo en un acorde,
en un clima extraño,
sumiso, sin compromisos,
no cediendo a mi tristeza
en un tiempo abstracto,
buscando una letra
en campos elisios,
en la mente cautiva
deshojando al sistema.
Pausa, refugio,
no dejes que te opriman!
El desierto también florece
en forma de brote,
gota a gota,
espada del viento,
errante y fiera,
– Levanté la voz –
bienvenido a casa!

In the middle ages, when a fugitive entered a church and screamed “in Asylum” he was immediately given protection and immunity by the priest. The authorities had no jurisdiction within the church. From there evolved what we all know today as diplomatic asylum. “In Asylum” is a latin word meaning “the sacred host”

Firefly drifting / Luciérnaga a la deriva

When the fragility
in a timid firefly
bows to the wind,
the day turns pale
and yields aimlessly
drifting in ravings,
lonely of the world
dying uncertain
to the fabric of night,
shivering restlessly
to meet in silence
with the maternal gaze
knotted on her body
into a luminous drift…

Cuando la fragilidad
de una luciérnaga tímida
se postra al viento,
el día se torna pálido
y cede sin rumbo
derivando en desvaríos,
solitario del mundo
agonizando incierto
al tejido de la noche,
temblando sin reposo
para reunirse en silencio
con la mirada materna
anudada en su cuerpo
en una deriva luminosa…
