Telescope, periscope, microscope

Poetry is a telescope, bringing us closer to what is very far away, an inverted periscope that takes us down to what is hidden, a microscope that lets us see what is invisible to the naked eye, a precision lens to make what was vague and confused come clear.

I don't read Spanish, so I appreciate the translation and the photo, too.
