La Vela

To Jeanne

Junio ha venido con rapidez, y la vela torpemente

Abstiene de apagar, por cuatro meses me había brillado.

Madre de todo, falta tu reloj, tercamente independiente,

Alma calentada, me hace calor como nada, siempre vinculado.

Dama caballera por eso, sin soledad, ángela del cielo.

January the candle’s flame waved, a tingle in my heart.

After the cold, the small sun provoked a flower’s growth,

Marriage of warmth, the heat now doesn’t come apart.

A creator, you’ve stayed luminous in the rain, burning oath,

Didn’t matter outside or in, even as your source diminishes, you never get sicker.

Justo, belleza, amor de la rosa, me alcanzas con tu vos divinamente.

Antes las metas que tendrías, ya has brincado, y sigues fijado.

Maestra paciente, faltas paciencia de mover. Superar tu cera, mente corriente.

Además, en mi verso muestras luz, haces fluyente, yo envuelto, tu admirado.

Donde sacudes, la sombra de vida sigue, esa belleza derrite hielo.

Just your contrasting blue is my weakness, though my ocean is no longer dark.

A red glow slowed time, simultaneously inflamed my hearth.

Mind over matter, you kept bright during isolation, pulled mind’s cart,

And post incarceration we bloomed, shined whiter than linen cloth.

During our time, we felt we’d never part, still, we don’t flicker.
