Thursday Poem

.
….
I plucked off petal after petal, as if you were a rose
in order to see your soul
but I didn’t see it.
………. While all around
—horizons of fields an seas—
everything, all the way to infinity,
was filled with an essence,
immense and alive

by Juan Ramón Jiménez
from
The Poet and the Sea
White Pine Press, 2009

~~~~~~~~~

…. Te deshojé, como una rosa,
para verte tu alma,
y no la vi.
……….. Mas todo en torno
—horizontes de tierras y de la mares—
todo, hasta el infinito,
se colmó de una esencia
inmensa y viva.
