Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting
The next –and last– poetic series is titled Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting. Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will be featured in stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal. Our main characters –Áxel & Amaia– return to their second home in the Windy City, Chicago. During an award ceremony at the Magnificent Mile, Áxel recites a series of poems inspired by his wife Amaia. The poems describe her as well as what would happen to Áxel if Amaia didn’t exist or wasn’t part of his life. The series is my attempt to discuss love through metaphors and language rarely used in this discussion. It hints at a most peculiar mind and continues our couple’s otherworldly adventures into the realm of the fantastical, magical, supernatural, paranormal & transcendental –a world of gloom, horror, and hauntings.
As I share these English-language poems with you, I will also publish the new, Spanish-language counterpart to Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting, titled: Crónica de un Embrujo Hermoso.
