Poetry Party!

Anthony Merchado's
Last Night As I Was Sleeping
translated by Robert Bly

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a spring was breaking
out in my heart.
I said: Along which secret aqueduct,
Oh water, are you coming to me,
water of a new life
that I have never drunk?

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures.

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a fiery sun was giving
light inside my heart.
It was fiery because I felt
warmth as from a hearth,
and sun because it gave light
and brought tears to my eyes.

Last night as I slept,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that it was God I had
here inside my heart.

You choose what story you want to live in. It's as simple as that. Let all the bees, elves, angels, helpers, whatever, do their job of making "sweet honey of your failures" by being willing to be you unattached to the labels of yesterday.

brought to you by I am a Magnificent Woman.
