the color of your eyes

the color of your eyes
illuminates
your indigenous beauty
your radical heart
penetrates
la vida in you
that loves,
que ama unconditionally
breaking down barriers
dando vida
al espíritu
que conoce
que es lo que es dolor,
sufrimiento,
amor en las venas
of our antepasados.
The color of your eyes
captivate my soul
like no other. In you, I discover myself.
lost, wandering
the deep valley
of neither
here nor there. the color
of your eyes, the color
of life. Nepantla.
