Testimony to the Night [In English and Spanish]
In the quiet of the arctic night-
Here, here is where you find
To clutter the mind
(for a moment).
Here, the sky has eternal eyes
With the Universe-
Here my eyes seek and search
Here, resides a strange peace
The ebbing, eldritch dark;
Cold and oddly numb are my feet,
If Kings and Queens were
Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to thee
Of the foes, divine immortals?
The enemies that never rest
I hear music, harmony from afar (there)
Orion's dust?perpetual dust;
Aw! Ye, our sacred books are all on fire;
Tiding from heaven-.
I see the flames; crimson flames;
And the mindless will play some more?
Off in the darkness, somewhere?!
Sea; with fainting breath, silently-;
I do not want to see the annuals-,
?stirs the cosmos: with His spectral.
Eh! yes! Oh yes, the midnight sky has eyes
Hence, soon to recur the inviolate
Notes by the author: "?this is a deep, and restless poem with many images; the secret of the poem (to me) is the sun, as it has always rose, so it shall again, tomorrow, and again another tomorrow, and so shall peace not exist, as long as it is in the hands of mankind." The author has spent time in the Arctic, l996. 7/7/05 #752
This is part one of three parts; part two, to this poem is called: "House of the Goblin"?
Testimonio a la Noche
En la quietud de la noche Ártica-
¡Aquí, aquí es donde Ud. encuentra
Aquí, el cielo tiene ojos eternos
Aquí mis ojos investigan y buscan
Aquí, reside una paz extraña
Frío y entumecido de una manera extraña están mis pies,
¡AH! Alabanza, alabanza sea para ti, a ti
Oigo la música armoniosa, desde lejos (allí)
¡Aw! Nuestros libros sagrados están todos sobre el fuego;
Veo, las llamas sobre los caminos de batalla
Fuera de la oscuridad, ¡en algún lugar!?
Yo, no quiero ver las anuales
Pero, aun el cielo nocturno tiene ojos
Notas del autor: "este es un profundo, impaciente profundo poema Con mucha imaginación, el secreto del poema (para mi) es el sol, Como este siempre sale, así este saldrá, otra vez, mañana, y otra vez Otro mañana, y así la paz no existirá, mientras esto este en las manos De la humanidad." El autor, ha permanecido un tiempo en el ártico, 1996. 7/7/05 #752
Passion and Poetry, and Life
Ironically, the passion that can neutralize the repulsion for difficulties depends on the effort to overcome these difficulties. The irony resides in the circularity of this principle - which applies to all areas of activity, including poetry: One must make the effort to overcome difficulties to achieve success and feel capable, and one needs this achievement and feeling to have a passion for making this effort.

Uamaks Aquatic [suspense: now in Spanish and English]
Delicately, my mind was selecting a muffled tune, out of the dead dark empty space surrounding me?I saw a shape on a rock, not sure who it was; I had a sensitivity though, a feeling call it, or second-sight; I've heard that before, not sure if I want to put a lot of credence into it, but so be it, the sensitivity and numbness was there. I didn't' sense any danger in the moment, in the moonlit figure, sitting on the rocks, lurking, looking out into the deep.
