We Are...Alone

in poetry •  5 months ago


And lonely as it is, that loneliness
Will be more lonely ere it will be less

—Robert Frost

Stars rise and set

In antique silence


To the human code.

The night communes

In mineral vowels

Beyond our reckoning.

We are alone.

Despite our starships,

We are alone.

Y con un universo infinito en el que hay miles de estrellas y planetas por descubrir, con grandes ciudades, con un millón de amigos en Facebook, aún así estamos solos, mi estimado! Porque la soledad no es un estado físico, sino espiritual, de alma. Quién nos dice que hay algo más allá de nuestro cielo? Errantes esperamos la promesa, aunque las hojas secas caigan de los árboles de tanto esperar! Te abrazo;)


Me encanta esa línea poética, Nancy: las hojas secas caen de los árboles de tanta espera ... ¡encantador!

I like that ... mineral vowels. They say it is the vowels that carrying the emotion in words. We poets auger for them. A wonderful and poignant piece of brevity, John:)


Thanks, Pryde - yes, the consonants are silent :)
