Poem-A-Week

Poetry Journey
Adrian Ernesto Cepeda

Cento poem from Pablo Neruda’s: The Complete Memoirs 

 

Walking against 

sealed wombs aware 

of the burn, my words 

journey, companion you 

to recognize my poetry—

she, my guide dark

flare driven love

suffusing of solitudes,

today, my voice accepts

you, wounded sometimes

cheer unchained forest 

shatter my secret heart

lights deep in tenderness, 

gulfs flames age of lost 

love, the mother of 

my solitudes, discovery 

of thorns in depths, 

my anxiety sea grasps 

dark wind, impassioned 

flight blaze in echoes, 

the joy of poetry nets— 

my pleasures of night.
