Yellow – Amarillo

Nostalgia, Poetry, Self-Reflection, Vienna
Although adorned with yellow flowers,
surrounded by abundant foliage,
and inhabiting a tropical land,
I am not here.

My physical self
delights
 in the KL heat,
and dances in the afternoon deluge.

But my heart,
oh, my poor heart,
I left it behind in Wien.
It still lingers in the 
Viennese winter
of the prior year.

I hope once spring comes
in the northern hemisphere,
my heart will travel to me
to southeast Asia,
to flourish and bloom
as it should.

Spring, please make me whole.

Aunque adornada con flores amarillas,
rodeada de follaje abundante 
y habitando una tierra tropical,
no estoy aquí.

Mi yo físico 
se deleita en el calor de KL
y baila en los diluvios vespertinos.

Pero mi corazón,
oh, mi pobre corazón,
se quedó atrás en Viena.
Sigue ahí
en el invierno Vienés
del año anterior.

Espero que cuando llegue la primavera
en el hemisferio norte,
mi corazón viaje a mí
a Asia del sur
para que florezca y brote
como debe de ser.

Primavera, hazme completa.
