We are one continent, from sea to sea, and earth to sky. Sol de Medianoche reflects our diversity through our culture, art, and poetry.
Evelyn Zárate Mora, “Ave Tricolor”, Acrylic on wood.
AGUA By Lina Mariscal
Pure and transparent Like the hope I felt When I heard to the U.S. We were to foot set
Rivers and roads We crossed for days Hoping that to that land Our bodies would get
Little did we know That once our feet felt That promised land to them, we become the same as a welt
Now in a cage, I sit Waiting for a trial With the rest of my family Still in denial
Not even water Do I get to drink? Let alone use it To bathe, to clean, to live…
ABOUT THE ARTIST Evelyn Zárate Mora is a high school student in Zongolica, Veracruz. Evelyn is 15 years old. About her work, this young artist comments: “I started drawing since I can remember, I took it more seriously at 12 years old. For me, art is a means to distract me, it is something that I really like to do. Sometimes I use it to express what I feel.”
