Poetry #200
(published November 11, 2004)
by Jose Mari Gotera
Eman L.

como fuego verde
de mi existencia pasada
de mis batallas viejas
con los guerilleros
que inflamada vida
en la selva de mi corazon negro
te vuelves cantando
cantando de un gran amor
que lava la luna
el sol
y las estrellas
con las colores de angustia
de tu alma


by Jose Mari Gotera
Eman L.

like green fire
from my previous existence
from my ancient battles
with the guerillas
that inflamed life
in the jungle of my black heart
you return singing
singing of a great love
that washes the moon
the sun
and the stars
with the anguished colors
of your soul
