Description:




Universo



El sol es luminoso cobre

The sun is bright copper.
A shiny penny in the sky,
Almost jolly in its ascent,
Smiling as it rises.

El luna es seda hilada

The moon is spun silk,
floating softly in the dark.
Crystalized mirror of the night.

Y lo observador

And I am observer.
Just a point on the Earth's grid.
Dizzy from how insignficant,
I really am.

  This is delightful! It is a wonderful example of how a short poem can still speak volumes in the extent of mood and feelings that it evokes. It is brilliant in its expose' of the grandness of the universe and the humility of the individual; not insignificant, but still small in the shadow of the eternities! And the admission of insignificance of the individual is a milestone example of a genuine expression of humility.

Nice work!

  This is gorgeous -- by intent and imagery both. I love its simplicity and poetry. Quite right, indeed. And how, too, it is a poem within a poem.

Quick nitpick: 'it's ascent' should be 'its ascent.'

  its arresting and makes you wish you were multi lingual.

the close is tacked on there like a bit of what you want to say, but without the care that it will be read.
