Recital Corner: Un Buque De Flores

Standard

When I was in college, I had a class about Chicago Latino writers, which was inspiring to this Latina who dreams of being a published author. One of the books I had to get for the class was an anthology of poems called Shards of Light: Astillas de Luz.  Reading through it, I found a poem by David Hernandez called “Un Buque De Flores.” I didn’t know it, but Hernandez was considered the unofficial poet laureate of Chicago.  I say “was” because he died last year.  This poem captivated my imagination as a nineteen year old college freshman and I still love it to this day.  Hope you like it as well.
