Sal

Comenzaré el día
irradiando luz, sin velos,
despojado de falsos arropes.
Seré quien transmuta limoneros
en sembradios de higos zafarí.
Un pálido recuerdo de tus blasfemias
y lágrimas. En ti mi corazón es aro
encendido, la otrora sal negra sobre
tu playa. No soy naufrago sobre mi
sombra ni sueño confuso que aguarda
el fluir de su cauce estancado.
