Spanish Language Love Poetry
An American Orthopedic surgeon called upon us to write a poem in Spanish for his girlfriend, Tanita, who lives in her home country, Nicaragua. Inspired by Tanita’s love of Pablo Neruda’s love sonnets, we knew the perfect poet for Tanita is Analesa Raya-Flores. And we were right because Tanita has hung her poem next to her bed and reads it every evening. Through the poem, Tanita can hear the tenor of her love’s voice and feel his presence, despite their geographic distance.
Currently, we have poets, who are native speakers in Spanish, French, German, Russian, Mandarin, Hebrew, Arabic, Palestinian Arabic, and Punjabi to name a few! We adore hearing love stories! What is yours?
