The boat was dreaming
of lands far off, sun-drenched shores
through the boatmen’s imagination,
the grains of sand as big as stars
and the blue of the sky
shines with unexpected pleasure
in the visit of the sun.
The boat of the Carpenter of Nazareth
passed through the ocean of solitude,
in the dead of night with waves of vanity,
voyaged as far as the shore of peace beyond time.
The message reached distant cities:
‘Behold, I make all things new’,
and the cross became a boat of life
on the seas of oblivion,
