Farewell To My Nephew David

Poem By Alexandro Johns

It's so much light inside de eyes
before the small universe
of a life goes out.

David, already no one can reach you
preventing your adventure.
You are free for the journey
of your placid death.
The promise of the tree
that we saw grow up
and shining in the soul
of your grandma Ann
hidden its spring for ever.

Dreams were broken,
with those you attempted to knock down
the hard doors of the world,
now are open wide
for your message of silent.

The footsteps of a young man
have left us behind
in our own way
to a invisible night.

Soneto En El Desierto

Caminé en un desierto para olvidar sus pasos
Bajo un sol que hizo arder hasta mi sombra
Me hablaron las arenas como a todos los locos
Que han dejado de amar y a los que nadie nombra.


I hear the falling rain
and I fell as if the night
it flooding me
with all sorrows of unknown people,

Two Dead Children From Syria

They are floating on the beach
such as dead anemones,
the two Syrian children
returned to the silence.

Royal Safary

The king shot elephants,
he shamed forever his grandchildren
and now like an old pachyderm
he limps close to the Stygian lagoon.

Old Friends Meet

The old friends meet,
it is difficult
they comment or rejoice
with actual experiences.

Candado Bajo La Lluvia

Como los enamorados
de hoy
que dejan candados
en los puentes,
