I am jealous O! Azure damsel,
My admiration in a carousel.
Desirous of your love,
Pure as the gentle clouds.

I detest the warm sun that caresses you,
The ocean that lull’s you,
The wind that flings your hair away,
The spring, which gifts you scars, colourful and gay.

Spots misty and evergreen.
Beauty that runs skin deep.
Disturbed, I wander up and down,
Fidgeting to the river’s sound.

Why do you choose to look the other way?
To your dark children who sing and play.
Why do you let the raindrops batter you?
And not let me fondle you?

Ice crystals that grey your pitch-black hair,
Haughty they declare ‘We are free to graze’.
Why don’t you eye me? I impugn.
Like you stare unblinking at the silvery moon




It was time to go outside and get some fresh air. I was looking out on Broadway watching the cars go by and gazing up to the sun to feel the warmth on my face, when suddenly I saw a black street person man come shuffling down the sidewalk…… ragged clothes flying in the wind.

He stopped at the green street trash can, lifted the cover and dug in, looking for items of worth. I looked away and saw young blonde woman walking briskly and she looked at the black man as she passed the trash can…….I could see a look of horror on her face.

She walked on about ten feet, and then turned around while digging into her purse. She pulled out three dollar bills and gave them to the black man, then quietly walked away. The man looked at the bills, and then he too walked on. My heart warmed as I saw this wonderful compassionate event.

Later, I thought about the look of horror on her face and how I had just looked away. She must have been from the suburbs or something. But the thing is…..she should have been horrified by what she saw……. as I should have been too.



Hoy el mundo llega al abismo de los tiempos. Su vacío, su hueco interior, se cubre con la máscara de un frenético egoísmo.

El hombre se adora a sí mismo creyéndose un dios obsesionado con la búsqueda de los placeres instantáneos.

Sin embargo el arte nunca claudica y siempre habrá un artista algo de loco y soñador, un poeta obsesionado con encontrar una perla en la belleza de la palabra escrita.

Así vemos que la literatura encarna, hoy día, una posible modificación o evolución de este mundo en decadencia, por me3dio del diálogo fructífero entre poetas y escritores bilingües, quienes desde Ecuador a China, buscan un lenguaje que alcanza efectivamente a todos y genera puentes de diálogo, desarrollando e investigando formas expresivas que sena útiles para terminar de una vez por todas, algún día, con la respuesta violenta de una nación a otra.

Por otra parte, más allá de la quimera, el arte literario, y en especial el poético, encuentra más de una vez una forma de describir el mundo haciéndolo más habitable.

En particular, la poesía es un misterio y su fascinación reside en ser metáfora de la realidad, a la que trastoca, modifica y dibuja de un modo especial.

Los poetas buscan la respuesta misteriosa a una ecuación, comprometidos con el hallazgo de la solución del universo y del equilibrio armónico en la vida humana, usando la poesía como si fuera Álgebra.

Porque la poesía se trata del amor y lo que nos hace humanos es la capacidad de amar.

Lo único que hay en el devenir de la vida es el amor, y el amor es la PAZ.-
