Snow & Flowers
(translation of Nieve y Flores)
by Luis S. González-Acevedo
Winter spreads its wool blanket,
covering gardens, skies and flowers.
To the wind, it spills chilled currents…
covering each petal in bloom.
They become tears
and run to express their pain.
Flakes turn into droplets
and paint flowers…
…Winter, bid farewell as spring returns
and the ice that confines flowers melts.
Remember, the liberated flowers will not cry
the snow’s estrangement and newfound intimacy with the sun.
