“I am a no lukewarm, scorpio woman, born 04 november, divorce with 10 children... my life has always been an alternating rainbow and stormy weather!  I am an intellectual, only witty…  and to borrow Montaigne’s word, “and so I myself see better than anyone else that these are nothing but reveries of a man who has tasted only the outer crust of science in his childhood, and has retained only a vague general picture of them: a little of everything and nothing thoroughly”.


you… haughty wind
and I
a flimsy blossom
quiet in comfort
watching the silent streams
you… in concert with
the surging flood
smash crush me!

exert forceful velocity
whip me carry me
and I, like a timid plum
willingly bend
in an idiotic surrender
in total jouissance
unmindful of my
future yesterday!

darling I love you
don’t you forget that
your wind
your flood
will come and go
smashing crushing
other blooms
but… I am rare!

A wood nail mimics your life?

life is a challenge, difficult to live
yet challenges can be won

swaying trees, running brooks
pebbles nails fruits food
birds dogs books songs singing
anything under the sun
is identical to our life
they are models
mimics miniatures of our life
our challenges… 

one day, i cooked ‘lengua estofada’
hmmmmmmm yam… 2.5 kilos
kaput in one sitting

preparation was tedious
whole raw lengua boiled to skin; off thick outer skin
then simmer with all the ingredients for hours
when tender in their natural thick sauce
it’s the shining glory… salivated by all
‘lengua estofada’ is life model!

hammered fired hammered
cut scraped cut
before fine gold appears
everything… our five senses can seize  
are examples of life challenges
like now…now, a hora mismo
i am being challenged to write a poetry
without support of an image graphic artwork

the challenge
I paint my thoughts in words
so my readers won’t fall asleep… they are left challenged…
a wood nail mimics your life?
