Prompt 188: Language

Sandra of La Palabra Diminuta brings us this week's prompt, language, with these awesome poems:

I don´t recall a single word
but your gestures …your glance

no recuerdo palabras
sólo tus gestos...tu mirada
that word was so soft
it remained undeciphered
thus joining us both

apenas se oyó
quedando indescifrable
nos unió a los dos

quise buscar las palabras
para contar ese cuento
pero no encontré ninguna
que tradujera el momento
se me deshace el lenguaje
como el agua entre los dedos
y solo queda el silencio
en los sonidos del viento
un enigma en esta hora
una verdad de otro tiempo,
inaudibles se quedaron
sus sonidos tan pequeños
que no sé si nacerán
para algún oído nuevo
que descifrará el mensaje
cuando lo devuelva el viento
