    BelleSoft curve of stemCradledEasy in my handsYou singIn tiny bellish tonesA song that I should know

    I am yoursAs you spring and stretchToward sky andEarth at once

    WonderBending to sweepThe fragrant earthGrandmother findsHer vernal pose

    GentlyShe swaysFrom the tip ofEachKnobbedFinger

    To the loose-limbedBoughs at her heights

    StillGreen as spring

    Cold darknessHer precursorWhets the desireAt my core

    She draws me outAt the rootShaking freeThe frozen clods of soil

    Te Quiero

    Quiero la esperanza subconciente de alegriaUn sentido nebuloso de hambreQue ningun alimento puede curar

    Quiero cogerloLlorarloSoltar las lagrimasComo siMe despidiera de una conocida

    To be

    A songThe morning lightWith voiceless silenceSinging

    Casts aboutThe colored tonesOf a birthTransformedIn lifeResounding

    ThereThey stood

    Watching me work

    Never offeringAs though

    ThereWas nothing they could do


    They had done it already
