Carlos Enrique Sierra

(Colombia, 1967)

The shadow of the fish

Deep down my soul
Grumpily roams a dark fish
In good days
Your life hurries to shout on the street
But the uninhabited fish
Needs an instant
To darken the lake
Happiness was a rain
From which we forgot to take shelter
While the shadow of the fish
Struggled with the light of our soul
