The Canary Juan Carlos Luzardo, born in Teguise (Lanzarote) and resident in The Gran Canarian palms, has been a finalist of the I Poetry Contest ‘Editorial Tegra’ 2021 with his work ‘Twenty poems of my soul and a melody without return’.
Luzardo, who is a photographer, has been writing for a long time, although he has assured that he was “not” expected to be a finalist, for which he was very proud of the award and grateful to the publisher, since he has indicated that he has been writing poetry for a “long time” .
In relation to the collection of poems with which he has been a finalist in the Tegra contest, he explained during a conversation with Europa Press that it is “a wink” Chilean poet Pablo Neruda and his work ‘Twenty love poems and a desperate song’.
Thus, he has admitted that this work has helped him “open his mind to another world of feeling, of depth, of finding” his own self, as well as “of improving as a person and reaching out to others”.
All this through poetry focused on love, heartbreak or what is expected of a life, what he feels, as well as his feelings while he has been in the treatment of a disease, which has been in the period in which he has built the collection of poems ‘Twenty poems of my soul and a melody without return’.
For Luzardo, as he pointed out, the collection of poems “also supposes that the reader finds himself in those moments of solitude”.
