FOGGY SOLITUDES – Alicia Minjarez Ramírez / Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez

Poem by Alicia Minjarez Ramírez



I find myself
Close – distant
To the zephyr breeze,
I question in vain.
Foggy solitudes,
Dressed up as equinoxes
In perennial springs.

I require to silence
Flooding words,
To silence tears
Adorning my face.
Sadness dwelling
Like a stowaway
In soul’s murky mirrors.

Absence afflictions
Gradually succumb
Between my barren hands.
To grasp into hope!
Reason outshines
The fragmented heart
And the bare silence
Suffocates the stars.

Stars that won’t shine
Upon nostalgia seas
Taking away opacities
And a shattered mirror
Where my reflection
Fades away
Right now.

Cracking in my own roots…
Dark memories,
Empty stealth,
And leaves
Scattered on the ground.
