Tito's dream is a collection of short poems that describe the poetic journey of a boy (Tito) searching for his mother who left forever.
Tito, naively believing that his mother moved to the moon, confronts many elements as he tries to reach her.
He will also feel the pain of saying goodbye to his childhood friend, Paulina.
This journey is an allegory of the passage from childhood to adulthood.
Punto en el cielo
Go beyond the space,
Go beyond the time,
The here and now
is a beautiful star,
punto en el cielo
con ojos azules como la vida!
there is no time, no space
but only here and now...
-pure state of an emotion-
Then sleep! Beyond it...
in that point
where you dream!
