My Author of the Year Interview with Spillwords Press #author

My Dear Readers,

I am humbled that I was voted Author of the Year at Spillwords Press.  Thank you to everyone who voted for me, and thank you to the wonderful team at Spillwords Press (NYC).

“…from the writings of the titans coming from the Latin American space to the writings of their counterparts coming from the Slavic space. Yes, I am an American, but I am also a child of Europe. I have been fascinated, mesmerized, frightened, brought to tears…”

Yours,

Gabriela

 

 

and…love… #love poem #poetry

and…
this night is jasmine and is sand
the trees are fingers with no end
the earth has eyes
the tears have thighs

you…
you are the voice of lonely heights
I am the day without sights
a leaf is falling on my hips
into the air a form of lips

and…
your touches hide in poetry
a flower faints with jealousy
your dreams taste like forbidden fruits
the sea grows almonds and grows roots

yet…
the story didn’t write its end
my eyes and yours are a blend
and…
love…

Thank you! I was voted Author of the Year (2020) at Spillwords Press #award

My Dear Readers,

I was voted author of the Year at Spillwords Press NYC (2020). I am deeply grateful to those of you who voted for me.

Thank you to you, and to the incredible team who runs Spillwords Press.

I am deeply humbled and honored by this recognition. However, I’ve never written for the purpose of receiving an award. I’ve always written to touch others’ souls. If this award will allow me to reach more people, I will certainly consider it a win. I was not taught to think “I.” I was taught the think “we.”

Without my students I am not a professor, and without my readers I am not an author. This award belongs to you as much as it belongs to me, and to those you have supported me in my journey in life until this point.

Yours,

Gabriela
