Hi everybody! I've got another poem in Spanish for you. Please feel free to translate it into English if you wish.
Here it goes:

Don Ligón

Cada vez que me sumerjo en ti
Caigo desnuda como una gota de agua
Vulnerable, rota, de una nube
Colgada en tu cielo.

Cada vez que me hundo en tus aguas
Veo neblina alrededor del mundo
Mi ojos detrás de un velo
Obscurecidos por la bruma de la lluvia
De tu mundo.

Con cada segundo, perdido, volando
La tierra se vuelve sol
Y el sol se vuelve luna
Nutrida por las semillas de tu locura.

Y allá en el horizonte
Se encuentran la luz y la tierra
El relámpago y el trueno
Detrás de un cerro, detrás de un monte.

Y allá crecen moras y bayas
Allá donde su junta la luz con la sombra
Donde el ruido de la lluvia
Deja enmudecidos mis oídos
Me pierdo en tu olor a papayas
Me derrumbo sobre tus ojos entumecidos.

Y con el paso del tiempo
Con cada nuevo nacimiento
De un lucero en el cielo
Despiertas en mi corazón
Protegido por mi razón mística
Suspendido en el hueco
Que vive dentro del alma fanática
Arrastrado por los cauces de mi sangre
Que fluye al zumbido de mi son sin eco.

Cada vez que me sumerjo en ti
Mi querido seductor
Mi amante Don Ligón
Regreso con el alma desbordada
Con mi fe embrujada
Con la boca seca y febril
Regreso
Para renacer de nuevo.

13 Jul 2006 @ 20:02 by jmarc : Raw Data to be refined
Each time that submerge in you I Fall naked like a drop of broken, Vulnerable water, of a Hanging cloud in
your sky.

Each time that sink in your water I See fog around the world My eyes behind a veil Obscured by the mist of
the rain Of your world.

With each second, lost, flying The land returns sun AND the sun returns moon Nourished by the seeds of your
insanity.

And there in the horizon they are found the light and the land The lightning and the thunder Behind a hill,
behind a mount.

And there blackberries grow and berries There where its meeting the light with the shadow Where the noise of
the rain Leaves silenced my ears I lose Me in your smell to papayas I collapse on your eyes become numb.

And with the passage of time With each new birth Of a bright star in the Awake sky in my heart Protected by my
mystical reason Suspended in the hole That lives inside the fanatic soul Dragged by the river bed of my blood
That flows al buzz of my they are without echo.

Each time that submerge in you My wanted seducer My lover Mr. Womanizer Return with the soul overflowed With
my haunted faith With the mouth dry and feverish Return To reborn again.

Thanks Monique (and Juan Marco!)
Can you put a picture up, also and put your name under the poem?  



14 Jul 2006 @ 11:06 by judih : Edited version - thank you so much jose
Thanks for giving this a first over. i've been working with the flow:
See what you think, Monique.

Raw Data

Each time that I submerge in you
I fall naked
like a drop of broken, vulnerable water
a hanging cloud in your sky.

Each time that I sink in your water
I see fog around the world
My eyes behind a veil
obscured by the misty rain of your world.

With each second, lost, flying
The land returns sun and the sun returns moon
nourished by the seeds of your insanity.

And there in the horizon,
Discover the light and the land
The lightning and the thunder
Behind a hill, behind a mount.

Where light and shadow meet
grow blackberries and berries
Where the noise of the rain
Leaves silence in my ears
I lose myself in your smell of papaya
Collapsing into your eyes, I become numb.

And with the passage of time
With each new birth of a bright star
In the awakening sky of my heart
protected by mystical reason
Suspended in the hole that lives within the fanatic soul
I'm dragged by the river bed of my blood
flowing in sounds without echo.

Each time that I submerge in you,
My wanted seducer
My lover, Mr. Womanizer
I return with my soul overflowing
With haunted faith and dry mouth and a fever to be reborn again.  



17 Jul 2006 @ 11:43 by monique : Looking through the translation
Hi guys,
I put up a picture, sorry, did't find a smaller one which would suit the poem.
Thanks for the translations, I did one myself as well. Still looking through it. I'll try to post a final version soon.  



17 Jul 2006 @ 15:44 by judih : monique, can't see the picture
looking forward to your own translation.

...........edit......... now i see it!
nice!  



18 Jul 2006 @ 11:51 by monique : Don Ligón - English translation
Each time that I submerge in you
I fall naked
From a cloud hanging in your sky
Like a drop of water
Vulnerable and broken.

Each time that sink in your water
I see fog around the world
My eyes behind a veil
Obscured by the misty rain
Of your world.

With each second
The earth becomes sun
And the sun becomes moon
Lost, flying,
Nourished by the seeds of your insanity.

And there in the horizon
The light meets the land,
And the lightning meets the thunder,
Behind a hill, behind a mountain.

Where light and shadow come together
Grow blackberries and berries,
Where the noise of the rain
Leaves silence in my ears,
I lose myself in your smell of papaya,
Collapsing into your numb eyes.

And with the passage of time,
With each new birth
Of a bright star in the sky
You awake in my heart,
Protected by my mystical reason
Suspended in the hole
That lives within the fanatic soul,
You’re dragged by the river beds of my blood
Flowing to the hum of my sound without echo.

Each time that I submerge in you,
My beloved seducer,
My lover Don Ligón
I return with my soul overflowing,
With haunted faith
And my mouth dry and feverish.
I return
To be reborn again.

What do you think Judi? Let me know if there's anything that you think might work better differently.  



18 Jul 2006 @ 14:41 by judih : yes..
one addition of 'I' in the second stanza
and this seemed to flow better:
"I lose myself in your papaya smell
and collapse into your numb eyes."

So, like this:

Don Ligón - English translation

Each time that I submerge in you
I fall naked
From a cloud hanging in your sky
Like a drop of water
Vulnerable and broken.

Each time that I sink in your water
I see fog around the world
My eyes behind a veil
Obscured by the misty rain
Of your world.

With each second
The earth becomes sun
And the sun becomes moon
Lost, flying,
Nourished by the seeds of your insanity.

And there in the horizon
The light meets the land,
And lightning meets thunder,
Behind a hill, behind a mountain.

Where light and shadow come together
Grow blackberries and berries,
Where the noise of the rain
Leaves silence in my ears,
I lose myself in your papaya smell
and collapse into your numb eyes.

And with the passage of time,
With each new birth
Of a bright star in the sky
You awake in my heart,
Protected by my mystical reason
Suspended in the hole
That lives within the fanatic soul,
You’re dragged by the river beds of my blood
Flowing to the hum of my sound without echo.

Each time that I submerge in you,
My beloved seducer,
My lover Don Ligón
I return with my soul overflowing,
With haunted faith
And my mouth dry and feverish.
I return
To be reborn again.

what do you think?

and i so very thank you for clearing up that "Mr. Womanizer" translation! (muffled giggle)

It's a very passionate poem. Thick and luscious.  



24 Jul 2006 @ 08:49 by monique : Thanks Judi, it does sound better :)
I forgot the "I" in the second stanza (I didn't mean to leave it out). I definitely like your suggestion about the papaya smell. It goes better with the "rain".
Well, "Don Ligón" (if you translate it literally) means "womanizer", but I didn't use it in this literal sense in the Spanish version, rather as a name, so I left it in English.

that was a wonderful piece. can you please send me some tips on how to become a great poet.  


3 Sep 2006 @ 11:31 by monique : Write from the heart!
That's all I know. I'm not a "professional" poet myself. I just write to express what I feel about the world, people, emotions...
I'm glad you liked my poem, thank you so much!

Good luck!
