She looks for herself in the mirror

She recognizes sunrise and rain

Hills open to the sun

disheveled like wheat ready to be harvested

she recognizes and reconciles herself


En el espejo ella se busca

Se reconoce amanecer y lluvia

Colina desplegada al sol

Despeinada como trigo a punto de cosecha

Se reconoce se reconcilia




On the bowl of her back

Poppies keep growing

My wakeful hands recreate the rain

… I return to her smoothness

I am left drenched in red

Los cristales del fondo incitan a saltar



En el cuenco de su espalda

las amapolas siguen creciendo

mis manos despiertas recrean lluvia

…vuelvo a su tersura

Me quedo empapado de rojo
