(1) Wheatfields - Poem by Luis Gil de la Puente

I am walking,
I know that.
I will never return
to these wheatfields...

My rucksack is full
of memories...
At one point,
I will get rid
of this load....

I´m saving the light,
the greyhounds,
my bike,
some books,
and the whisper....
of the wind
on the plains.

Someone is waiting for me
across the river
on the other side....
