first love

Written by: juana Guillen

Everything Glance 
takes you 
Is  the first love 
the moon
 the sun
 the stars
 This  planet earth 
 who maintains feeding
spiritually  
food
 Air 
Water
 Earth 
Vegetables 
Fruits 
and the poetry of Neruda nourish feeds
  Me For example

Their blue sea Quiet and angry
 The dry volcanoes 
Part of the Glance
 Of the first love In places
Love contains many drops 
That has formed continents
 Islands and are land of tombs
 Of my ancestors
 In interminable cemeteries
 in the world 
My friends the universal poets

My father 
My better friends the books
 The first letters
 The first one 
To spelling of the word love
 Poems drops of rain
 The verses of the captain
 The first tears
 The first shout of the new born 
The cut navel in the belly Of the mother
 Nature the natural engenders 
 In the Galapagos 
The first passages of the humanity
 In this planet
The first step of human kind
 Looking for fire
 Are the first passages of the definition?
 of love

All this I take me
 When
 I saw you’ for the first time
 And 
We watched each other
We felt in love.
