BACHA POSH / Poem by Luz María López

BACHA POSH
 
Free myself of isolation chains
all obscurity surrounding my mind
the walls that deny existence
open now the entrances of liberty
let me be a self beyond the curtains
that blinds all light, dampening the spirit,
for a bird is about to die!
 
I will gladly hide my soft curves
while the fresh air hits my face
with the flavor of danger
the sting of manhood
ruling the world.
 
Luz María López

LOVE AND PEACE GROW EVERYWHERE / Poem by Roula Pollard

Poem by Roula Pollard

 

LOVE AND PEACE GROW EVERYWHERE

I.
We plant seeds, sunflowers,
orange trees in our garden.
We plant seeds of compassion,
peace in our heart.
We plant seeds of happiness
in countless fields.
We plant seeds of togetherness
between people. Bridges
we plant.

We plant seeds of friendship
on continents, among nations,
seeds of human understanding.
We plant seeds of sincere smiles
to sing fresh mornings,
to increase days, happy years,
seasons of fruitful centuries.
We plant Peace seeds
in the desert years
of the past
EXCERPT…
