A well-known road

There is a fine screen of leaves colors

—red, brown, yellow—running with the

morning breeze coming from the east.

They are the children of the lines of trees,

standing at attention on both sides of the road.

Orange-red—yellowish finches fly

from one tree line to the other,

joggling through passing vehicles

at speeds beyond nature as if they were

trying to break a human barrier.

Its asphalt has lightened from the jet-black

that once shined under the tree feet

dotted white rural lines on its center.

Then, it curves slightly to its left to lose

itself in the silhouettes of the mountains

drawn from left to right into the Yonder.


Un camino bien conocido

Hay una fina pantalla de hojas de colores

—rojas, marrones, amarillas—corriendo con la

brisa mañanera proveniente del Oriente.

Ellas son los hijos de las líneas de árboles

parados en atención en ambos lados.

Pinzones anaranjados-rojos amarillentos vuelan

desde una línea de los árboles a la otra

sacudiéndose entre los vehículos que pasan

a velocidades más allá de la naturaleza como si estuvieran tratando de romper una barrera humana.

Su asfalto ha aclarado del color azabache

que una vez brilló bajo los pies de los árboles

punteadas líneas rurales blancas en su centro.

Luego, se curva ligeramente hacia su izquierda para

perderse en las siluetas de las montañas

dibujadas de izquierda a derecha en el más Allá.
