Three Poems by Luz Emma Cañas Madrigal


The Dowry


As a token of my love
I offer you my heart
My riches are not of this world
They lie in the hereafter

If it is His will
That we part ways
Through indifference or death
Keep it as a reminder
Of His Love For you
In His generosity
He has replaced my heart
With His own

I am grateful for the Love that this is
And the love that it is not
It is through your humanity
That I have come to love my self more
and your divinity
That I have come to Love God more.


Al-Khem-ist


Lord grant me more patience
With this slow burning process
Of converting my pain to gold
Lovers I have had
But the one that Eludes me
Is my Beloved

I see you in one
Smell you in another
Does the remedy I seek
Lie in a rare flower
That does not even exist

Why have You dispersed your essence
In so many flowers
In which my curiosity
Leads to disappointment

Please reveal the elixir
That heals my ailing heart
Or help me to accept the mystery
Of This alchemical medicine.


Haram


Is it unlawful
That I abandoned everything
In my pursuit of you

A friend for your love
Only God inspires
Such desire

Could it be…
Everything He created
Contains His essence?

Call me a heretic
I am prepared to
Undergo the flame

For I discovered
My Beloved
In the heart
Of an infidel.
