"Poems of Life" was the title poem of my bilingual English/Spanish collection of 50 poems - "Poems of Life/Poemas de la vida'
Every life is a complete universe, Large, small or somewhere in between. Images of time and place Recall the the stages of life's scenes. First memories of infancy Begin as a state of utter dependency. Helpless, we cry for everything. In childhood, vague memories Are like a dream, Though many experiences Have a lasting effect. Our schooling from grade to middle To high school goes on forever, Or so it seems. In maturity and adulthood Our paths become more diverse. Poems can recount these Twists and turns of our destiny. Thus, we may call them Poems of life.
