This is my first poem written directly in English instead of in Spanish. I've been trying for a while to write poetry in English to see how it feels. Any journey starts with one step, and this is my little one :-)

She knows

She knows my dream.
She used to tell me secrets
while I was asleep,
she used to light up the darkness
keeping sadness away from me.

She knows my wish.
She used to show me
magic colors behind the trees,
she used to blow the clouds
and dance with me in the wind.

She knows how I feel.
Since I was a baby
she floods my soul with peace,
taking my hand with love
promising never to leave.

Do you know who she is?
Look deeply in your heart
and there she will be.

Beyond language, effortlessly right in English.

More, please!


Thank you for your comment and for giving me encouragement to continue this journey. By the way, I've visited your website and liked your poems very much! Thanks for sharing them with the world ;-)

....I know some other dakinis here that will appreciate that, too!

I've realized that it's easier to write directly in English than to translate the poems from Spanish.  

25 Oct 2005 @ 09:05 by vibrani : You did beautifully well
I would never know that English is not your native language, Silvia. I like the poem very much.

Thank you Vibrani, I'm glad that you liked the poem. You'd probably realize that English is not my native language if you could listen to me reciting it hehehe :-D

You asked...Do you know who it is? You added..Look deeply in the heart and there she will be.

Perhaps it is the Inner Child. Perhaps it is the Spark of the Divine Feminine, the Goddess.
Maybe the Divine Inner Child and the Divine Mother are Inseparable.

Kay, thanks for sharing your thoughts on this question. I think it's important to listen to our heart, as many answers are enclosed there. Answers to questions that maybe we even haven't asked consciously :-)

Magnificent & Wonderfull!!
You bring exquisit beauty to the English language
And believe me, THAT is inspiring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have always thought that English had NO HEART
compared to Spanish. All the Spanish people whom
I know in person are very warm very loving and they
get HOT at the drop of a hat. LOL

When i read your poem I felt a Divine Mother as in
ancient times when we worshiped the mother and the
apparent divine phenomena of motherhood/the bringing
forth of Life & Sustanence. On the other hand since
I myself experience a knowing that I have had within
me since the first day I was able to remember or to
marvel in nature (18 months), I would say that your
poem is about the real and eternal us; the one who
KNOWS. I call her the Collective EVE, LOL...

Thanks for your encouraging words, Brenda. I liked also to read your thoughts about who 'she' is for you. Thanks for sharing them with us!

la facilidad con que puedes mover las fibras de mi corazón...sin duda eres un angel...una gran mujer...te felicito y gracias por compartir tu belleza

Moris, gracias por tu amables palabras, ¡vas a ponerme colorada con tus halagos! ;-). Es muy bonito que haya hombres sensibles como tú que aprecian la poesía, cada vez es menos habitual en este mundo en que vivimos. Un abrazo!

es uno de mis rincones favoritos en Llanes.

Y uno de los míos también... su atmósfera insipira paz y sosiego.
