My Very first Blog begins with a poem: SCHOOL IN THE BIRTH OF WINTER

I quietly strolled through the mountain greens of Jalisco
the soft leaves grazing my face pleading to stay a while longer.
begging for a sip of green card juice, so that the seeds can return with me.

As I arrived in San Diego
I dropped a napkin and,
Gravity did its part,
it fell with such grace
dancing like a broken leaf in autumn’s fall.

On an October 13th morning
I picked her up on that dry Santa Ana windy day
the first image I had was an old picture that
resonated from my past 22 years.
A welcoming glare wrapped in a blanket
her hazel eyes managed to puncture my heart
like the teeth of a lioness
I told her that I’d be her role model, that I’d keep her warm
And, she said to me
father there is no need to, I am a soothing sauna.
I took a deep breath and laid her in the crib.
It’ll keep her warm through the midterms.

  3. this poem is just so striking for me...
    october 13? past 22 years?Reminds me of a specific beautiful year in my life...but then as you always say,don't look gotta move on...and so I'm trying hard to do the same...I'm dwelling in the past for so long that your videos had been a great poking or shall I say a great awakening punch on my daydreaming and lousy life state...Thank you.
