I love the images and the language. In spite of poem's beauty, I feel it is speaking to the pain of the immigrant experience caused by leaving one's family to seek a better life.
Thank you for this lovely and insightful poem; it is loaded with feeling.
Thank you! This is lovely . . .
The opening stanza is so memorable and sinewy and emotional that it could make a stunning poem all on its own.
Thank you for it, Javier Zamora!
Thank you for very touching words and feelings.
