Poem… Homeland


Homeland

(translation|modification of Patria)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Present is my absence
Far in proximity
In daydreams, I play
in your landscapes, Motherland.

My Desire: you within me
My Want: me within you
Desiring and wanting you,
my poetry lives loving you.

Playing with words
With words playing
Words of loyalty
for Fatherland’s future.
