The Secret of the Air – Rafael Ayala Paez

You are an errant spirit
that moves among the foliage
under the pebbles scattered on the sand.
Wind that talks to me in the swaying
of trees
dragonfly of an absolute pure blue.

Eternal breath bringing solace.

Eres un espíritu errabundo
que se mueve entre el follaje
bajo los guijarros esparcidos en la arena.

Viento que me habla en el balanceo
de los árboles
libélula de azul absoluto, puro.

Soplo eterno portador de alivio
