Claribel Alegría Poems
As the falling rain trickles among the stones memories come bubbling out. It's as if the rain
The terrain in my country is abrupt the gullies go dry in the summertime

telling me tales

when I learned you were leaving forever,
a gleaming pebble
from constant rubbing
becomes a comet.
Rain is falling
and memories keep flooding by
