Sueño de Amor
Words by Nadia Garessimenko

She saw him in a dream one night--
Tender blue-eyed man
Unlike any other.
Mariposas tickled her insides
As she roused ecstatic and appeased.
Premonition foretold of his coming.
They met in a small Spanish café--
Aromas de Amor.
She ordered café bonbon,
He had café cortado.
Bittersweet scents filled the space.
Strong taste alerted their senses.
It was just them across each other.
He looked at her,
She felt his gaze.
She shyly smiled
As she looked up;
A current passed between them.
As time went by
And mementos gathered,
Their love spiralled like grapevines
Around a heaven’s ladder.
He knew he needed her for life.
She felt he was her only one.
Red and black adorned her body,
Cat eyes and ruby lips glistened
Under the eye of the sun.
She walked in flamenco swirls
With the village following her lead,
Euphoric, to meet her beloved match.
The other villagers joined in
Across from them, so grim.
“Where is mi corazón?” she pleaded.
They told her coldly, “He will not come.
We will not have it.”
Her limbs collapsed, and she blacked out.
She saw him in a dream that day--
Her tender blue-eyed man.
“Mi bella dama, mi amor, mi vida--
There will be an impasse between us.
Have courage to trust our love.
Together we will prevail,” he pledged.
