44. The Belly of an Iguana

978-1-951370-16-9

One of the most interesting poets that has emerged in Spanish poetry over the last few years (…) her work is born out of a gaze based on a quiet, attentive stillness. It feels good to read her, like sipping from a potion that helps us recognize ourselves and conforts us while we look at the footprints left behind that are already beginning to fade.

FIRST REFLECTION OF THE DAY

 

Arise every morning

when the room arises

flooded with light. The cordillera

undresses beneath the brume

like a Venus emerging from the waters.                                                      

 

May the day grant me peace,

clarity of thought,

may my silence be filled with words

precise and necessary

from the greenhouse

elevated like a miracle over the jungle,

where each day

new insects stretch out their wings

before taking flight.

 

May the grace of writing

also arise from my fingers.
