Scarce and Scars
Would you say
Love, is in scarcity,
Like an extinction scenario?
fractions of hatred,
let it overcome with generosity,
for when the time runs out
no breath, energy and vital signs exist
flora and fauna would all be framed
and everything will just pass away,
may humans not be endangered
in the forest of life—
of enlightenment.
Peruvian Biography
driven by an eagle’s spirit
manuscripts, flown to aesthetic gifts,
there were more than stories ever written
a chance to a wordsmiths’ circle.
brothers, in truth, in faith
in anguish, in reverie
in human and divine,
beyond a bohemian forehead,
the book of all voices.
A homage to all sublime hands,
the mirror of many faces
the biography of a legacy.
Southern Wings
You are risen, prodigious sons and daughters
Brought honour and fame,
You are noted Aztec weavers
Who travelled the wall streets
Etched a groomed history
Light drizzles of wilderness.
Between now and then,
Like shadows of Maori
In a life of a butterfly or dragons,
Archangels, devils and planets
Your manuscripts talked, shouted and wept
Like a revolution of Celestial odes
You were the southern wings
Flown to years of freedom
Your deep songs
Awaken the death of the suns
Shone to the Hispanic monuments,
Your voice remain.
In the hearts of men.
in my everything
i need you
to be the intervenor of your world
to my lost world
sneaking, skipping
to find the quantum place
breaking the walls of the light
from the deafening silence and blinding darkness
where i could feel the sun through my heart
but because i am a gift.
i like to dream and believe
even the impossible and unbelievable
i am not afraid to show how much i can
and learn the language of the blind,
but lend me your ears and heart
so i can lend my life,
and share what’s life all about
to the underprivileged,
that freedom outside the box
lifting my spirit to
reach an ocean of care.
