2 Poems (The Niña & La Pinta)

The Niña

Fighting for new memories,
Sailing untouched seas
And winds like breathing
Of unknown lands
In the suggestive laceration
Of light and shade.
Roots, tangled
To your old gift,
Explode
As you drift slowly
Farther away and beyond,
Ploughing virgin foams
Of innocent substances.

La Pinta

You come looking for me
With the restless eye
Of one wonders
What to listen to: Urge
Or Reason,
Of one who asks his soul
Not to be afraid of reality.
You drift,
Ignoring the fate
That an ephemeral solitude
Is preparing for your arms.
Now the Land hides,
Tomorrow you will hold the Light.
