I’m back to share with you some angsty love poems fromÂ Mirtha Michelle Castro Marmol’s bilingual book of poems,Â Elusive Loves/Â Amores Esquivos, which was released in 2015.
In the first post of this four-part series, I mentioned that these poems journey through romantic love by approaching the cycle through the perspective of seasons.Â We’ve journeyed through the sweetness of spring, the intensity of a summer passion, the pensiveness of a cooling autumn and today we’re at the fourth and final season, winter.Â Maybe the love has run cold.Â Now it’s time to say goodbye.Â But sometimes a little flicker of hope remains… maybe sometime in the future the frozen bareness will thaw and life will once again spark.
Winter… El Invierno
And the translation…
I read these as maybe a truth or maybe a wish. Or just beautiful thinking. I enjoy these.
She does have some lovely short poems in her collection.
