Except the guitar I used space as an instrument in these six preludes.The Cuban composer and guitarist Leo Brouwer wrote this in 1984 after reading ''Poemas de Amor" by Miguel Hernandez. So I guess it's all about love (again):
1. "Desde que el alba quiso ser alba, toda eres madre" ["As you are wholly woman, so the dawn wishes to be dawn"]
2. "Tristes hombres si no mueren de amores" ["Sad men, if they don't die of love"]
3. "Alrededor de tu piel, ato y desato la mia" ["Surrounded by your skin, mine is tied and untied"]
4. "Rié, que tod rié: que todo es madre leve" ["Laugh, everything laughs, all is mother of levity"]
5. "Me cogiste el corazón y hoy precipitas su vuelo" ["You caught the flight of my heart and today hurled it down"]
6. "Llegó con trés heridas: la del amor, la de la muerte, la de la vita" ["I endure with three wounds: that of love, that of death, that of life"]
Hernandez wrote his poem in a prison where he would also die during the Franco regime.
