Lágrimas/Tears

Written first in Spanish…


Lágrimas

Hay ríos de palabras corriendo,

cayendo sobre la cosecha de vidas.

Son ríos de mil frases, gritos,

llantos y esperanzas.

Son palabras de deseo,

de borrar la neblina de violencia,

de opresión, de las fuerzas

contra la libertad.

Palabras de escribir algo nuevo,

palabras de compromiso y

la promesa de presencia,

de saborear la invitación.

Y cuando a mi campo,

en mi sed profunda,

los ríos me llevan sus sílabas

de bendición y fecundidad,

sus aguas llegan a mi boca

y me doy cuenta

que a veces, la Palabra

se escribe con tinta salada.

Tears

There are flowing rivers of words

falling over the fields of life.

Rivers of a thousand sentences,

shouts, groans, and hopes.

They are words of desire,

of lifting the fog of violence,

oppression, the forces

against being free.

Words for writing something new,

words of promise

and the covenant of presence,

of savoring the invitation.

When the river arrives at my field,

it brings to my deep thirst its syllables.

Syllables of blessing

Syllables of blooming.

And I realize,

with the waters in my mouth,

that sometimes the Word

writes in salted ink.
