Naturaleza muerta

Fondo azul opaco

Mantel y platos de color azul opaco

Naranjas.

Como el mar en su tristezaRecordandoUn velero anaranjado,Un sol naciente, resplandeciente con la sonrisa del primer amor.

Pero se parece másA un recuerdo alegre y reluciente, brillandoEn la adversa y fría oscuridad.

Still Life

Its dull blue background

Is a tablecloth, its plates are dull blue

Oranges.

It is the sea at its lowest ebbRememberingAn orange sail,A rising sun radiant with love's first ripples.

But even more it isThe cold and dark of crisisHoarding in itself the embers of memory.
