“If only the peace I feel right now
could be stored up and released later
when cruelty surrounds me
in the dark
during nightmares.”
Margarita Engle, Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba

“I feel the heaviness of nightmares
even though I am awake.

How weary I am, how sleepless
and hopeless—there is no escape
from the torment
of wishes.”
Margarita Engle, Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba

“If we knew how to find
the lost, we would know
how to rediscover
the parts of our minds
left behind
in battle.”
Margarita Engle, The Surrender Tree: Poems of Cuba's Struggle for Freedom
