Dibujo y color, In English, Mi poesía

This does not come from the conscious mind.
My mother tongue does not let me drift in foreign fields.
For this I do not feel bad, but I perceive a limp in my thoughts
and in my willingness to utter an emotion
that trespass the fictitious border of a country
and surely travels across an inmense sea
leaving our communication torn asunder.

Still, there is a collective mind dwelling in the dreams
which does not stick to translation and goes
beyong grammatical patterns
and sets an order in this messy isolation
and does not surrender to the fact
that we are all bits that belong to the same «one»
and thus speak the same language
though pronounced differently.

Here is my message to you
that does not come in a bottle:
there is simplicity in understanding each other by sensing
and that is all that counts for the moment.

Thank you indeed, and thank you always, for that simplicity.

To you, Doree.

  1. I’m not quite sure how many times I’ve tried to reply to this post in my head, but it always seem to bypass the care I want instilled in what you will take from my words. How lucky are we to be able to feel someone else’s heartfelt emotions from across the divide. Last night, I felt yours come in with the wind and almost blow me over! The way you drift is so smooth, even if it’s not in your mother tongue. Your painting took me to a place where I see my mother, wild flowers and tall grasses. Simply, thank you, beyond anything I could every say.

    1. We need to write, but then we don’t know how to express some subleties, such as a mere gesture, right? A silence and a look often say more in these cases, but we cannot have that given the circumstances, so writing is better than silence or than nothing. Whatever you have said would have been more than enough, Doree. I’m so grateful and so happy that my post has brought you this feeling, this image so dear to you. I truly hope it gives you some relief. Your comment is a gift to me. 🌞
