Let Me Love You, Sky

(translation/version of Permíteme Amarte Cielo)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

… Let me love you, Sky –under the moon’s shadow.
Turn my null existence into triumph
with the predictable and tender calm that abounds in you.
Eclipse my anguished soul and illuminate my world …

… Rain in shadows that seals its love
with drops from you …

Submerge me in the sea of life.
Drown me in the passion of warming sands.
Seduce me with furious waves.
Bathe me with their kisses.
Crown me with your clouds’ red glow.

North Star of the Deep Black Sky

Sacred Book of Spells do conjure

Call upon these gentle spirits and let them fly,
so the legend of their lust & love ablaze
becomes the North Star of our deep black sky…

Mystical World of Hayuya

(translation of Mundo Místico de Hayuya)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

I hope to take you to another world,
enveloped and drowned in haze;
and immerse you in the deep
of its sky and sea of foam…

…the realm will possess you fondly.
The subsky is strawberry,
clouds dress with cotton,
and every day is a surprise.

In its center, a town sleeps.
Mountains surround it.
With its eyes, it wants to see me
and hold you in its heart…
