Epifanía / Epiphany – a poem in Spanish with English translation

Cada día llega
llevando su regalo.
A veces está escondido
en luz o sombra,
en son o silencio,
en aquellos que encontramos
o dentro de nosotros mismos.
Hay que buscarlo con cuidado.
Y cuando se halla
hay que tesorarlo.
Y para poseerlo de veras
hay que compartirlo
como pan.

(translation)

Each day arrives
bearing its gift.
Sometimes it is hidden
in light or in shadow,
in a sound or in silence,
in those we meet
or within our very selves.
It must be looked for with care.
And when it’s found,
it must be treasured.
And to possess it truly,
it must be shared
like bread.
