Peace around


I dream of a world without roars
from the deadly killing machine
I dream of lands far from the shadows
where rain is made of heartfelt ink

I wish to draw smiles on all faces
using rainy  drops which are multicolored 
to form a garden with all the races
where  differences are never noticed   

I think on so many  babies
who have never learn to smile
Their happiness is frozen
because of hunger illness and war

I´ve learned to listen to a special sound
while moon gazes to the roaming sun
I´ve learned to discover Peace around
and also invite her to a morning dance

You need to help me in this endeavor

giving your hand to whom is at your side

Discovering Peace around your heart

to enlighten the darkness of this decadent life






Sueño con un mundo sin el ruido

de la fea máquina  asesina

Sueño con terrenos libres del miedo

en los que la lluvia es de amorosa tinta


Anhelo dibujar sonrisas en todas las caras

usando sus claras gotas multicolores

Para formar jardines con todas las razas

Donde las diferencias no son valores


Pienso en tantos niños enlutados

que no han aprendido a sonreir

Su alegría se ha congelado

por la enfermedad, el hambre y la guerra ruin


He aprendido a escuchar un sonido especial

mientras la luna saluda al sol vagabundo

He aprendido a descubrir a la Paz del mundo

para invitarla a bailar la danza matinal


Tú debes ayudarme en este segundo

dando la mano al que está a tu lado

Descubriendo la Paz en este mundo

para iluminar la oscuridad  del decadente vado

This is calming and lovely, though I don't think so much of Neruda- you have your own unique style (I always see things slightly different than Andy anyway, but that's why we love each other, the conversations are always intelligent:)- your style has a real depth and strength to it- I have to sign up for you newsletter.

My mind cast to Neruda at first because of the translation.
Then seeing the profound wisdom here. I was not far off the money.
