The Boat — La barca

The Boat

Swayed by the waves, the boat waits for its boatman. Eager to redraw foam and blue stelae under his loving guidance. But he doesn’t arrive. She quietly counts the minutes and consoles herself thinking that sometimes it has happened. But today, she doesn’t know why, something tells her it’s different.

She doesn’t know that she will never see her boatman again.

La barca

Mecida por las olas, la barca espera a su barquero. Ansiosa por volver a trazar estelas de espuma y azul bajo su amorosa guía. Pero no llega. Cuenta en silencio los minutos yse consuela pensando que algunas veces ha ocurrido. Pero hoy, no sabe por qué, algo le dice que es distinto.

No sabe que nunca más volverá a ver a su barquero.
