from the Book of Questions – by Pueblo Neruda
Why do trees conceal the splendor of their roots?
How many churches are there in heaven?
Is it true that our desires must be watered with dew?
Is the sun the same as yesterday’s or is the fire different from that fire?
Where is the center for the sea? Why do waves never go there?
Why don’t the poor understand as soon as they stop being poor?
Where can you find a bell that will ring in your dreams?
Whom can I ask what I came to make happen in this world?
Why do I move without wanting to, why am I not able to sit still?
Was it where they lost me that I finally found myself?
Where does the rainbow end, in your soul or on the horizon?
