Dark Torches / Linternas Oscuras




High atop a mountainside
My gaze fixed on the horizon
Unblinking
I wait
For fires

Massive mounds of fallen trees
Piled to the sky
Left in distant lands
Helped into existence
Built with loving, warm persistence
With these two hands

Tremendous torches
Meant to show
My allies on the move
Towards me
In answer to my plea
For swift and vital assistance

The slight faint glint
Of a ray of sun
Or a false imagined spark
Are all my weary eyes behold
And the fire dies inside my heart



En lo alto de una montaña
Mi mirada fija en el horizonte
Sin parpadear
espero
En caso de incendios

Montículos masivas de árboles caídos
Apiladas al cielo
Quede en tierras lejanas
Ayudó a la existencia
Construido con amorosa, persistencia caliente
Con estas dos manos

antorchas tremendos
Significó demostrar
Mis aliados en el movimiento
hacia mí
En respuesta a mi petición
Para ayuda rápida y vital

El ligero brillo tenue
De un rayo de sol
O una chispa imaginado falsa
¿Son todos mis cansados ojos he aquí
Y el fuego muere dentro de mi corazón

As of many of your deep poems, I couldn't understand this. I ought to be ashamed that I used to be a Lit student. I thought your allies were coming to you but yet the ending sounds melancholic instead.

I'm also curious if you took that wonderful campfire picture. The frst one.

that make me think I can't remember when I have been in a forest (other than in Bali). It's sad isn't it ? Anyway, I finally posted a look ;)

Couldn't understand the depth of this poem... but I am sure it's brilliant as always. The last stanza however, makes me wonder why so sad dear friend?
