    Poem of the Month, January 2013

    As the first Poem of the Month in 2013, we have chosen one by Joseph Berolo, Poet and Founder/President of UNILETRAS (Naciones Unidas de las Letras) and newly appointed IFLAC Peace Ambassador in Colombia, with all best wishes for a great and fruitful year, paving together the IFLAC Path to Peace.


    By Joseph Berolo

    From my home, cradle of my dreams
    faithful path of sleepless nights,
    freely runs the enamored thoughts
    through capricious paths of courage.

    I seek lodging in the desert
    in every village and open shelter,
    and in every bosom, feeling
    and in every hug, protection.

    Reside in me, Irene, goddess of love,
    with your wings and with your wisdom –
    Give me Chronos, in my time and pain
    the long awaited shelter to my fate.

    I only want to love the human kind
    and hope for the divine to be with me.


    Translation from Spanish to English by the author.
