Poems by Irene Alomar – From Sun Mirror and More

Sun mirror and more…

I was inspired to call this book sun-mirror (“solspegel”). I wrote it in 1995. When we visited the graves in Egypt, I noticed mirrors placed by the opening of the graves. The guide explained it as such: The mirrors were hung in such a fashion that hey caught the sun rays and reflected light into the dark corridors and lit them up. These somewhat concrete sun-mirrors will be symbolic for more abstract thoughts in my life. The poem Solspegel is the leading poem in my book, even thought I do not place it in the beginning.

“Solspegel”

Sun-mirror

You gather earth

I gather sun.

you use a spade

and I a mirror

you build an earth-heap

I a sun-heap

We meet sometimes

in sun-earth-land

Words

Hevay as stones

sharp as daggers,

consuming as fire

can words be

But also

healing, comforting

shimmering, glimmering

lustrous pearls

in the dark.

Tenderness of Heart

Tenderness,

the softest, word I feel

on my fingertips

peach-pink

it’s colour

it’s tone

a glance

a voice

a thought

endearing

word

Bridge-builders

Without hammers,

without nails,

soundlessly,

they tread,

across the globe,

building bridges,

between people

rainbowbridges of

LOVE
