He aquí el lenguaje poesía que necesitaba escribir del silencio vivido después de la pérdida de mi madre, un tiempo de pena y de ausencia, de atender a lo material, que diríase culmina en caminar un primer Camino de Santiago al año de perderla. Dedico este libro a todos aquellos que han perdido seres queridos, a su aceptación, y necesaria transformación.

MELCHOR, GASPAR, BALTASAR, reyes magos

Dicen sabios son aquellos que saben
no saber todo; fuisteis magos de la búsqueda,
del buscar más allá de los límites,
de los confines del pasado, del futuro,
del presente conocido.
Noche tras noche mirando las estrellas,
confiasteis ante todo en una de ellas;
recorristeis el desierto de vuestras almas
avanzando lentamente paso a paso
bajo la atenta mirada de Dios.

MELCHIOR, GASPAR, BALTHAZAR, the Magi

It is said wise men know they don’t know everything;
Magi of the search, of the search beyond what is known,
of the search beyond the conceived great unknown;
looking up at the sky, below shining stars, you made your way through countless nights crossing the desert sands of your souls.
Riding slow camels, steps sinking into the dunes,
having left all you knew behind, you continued
the search under the attentive gaze of the sky.
