LUZ MARÍA LÓPEZ, PUERTO RICO (Peace Poem)

Luz María López 
Coexistence

Everything is possible
in the unreality
of space and time.

Souls thus seek 
their purest moment, 
they disprove the sabotages of destiny, 
the sorrows already written.

The essence of love is coexistence.

Without imposing silences, 
locks, fears, other words. 
It implies smiling. 
In spite of crying,
the finiteness of the instant. 

Reality is inside you, 
like the heart and the air 
that you breathe. 

The encounter. 
The kiss. 
The name of the dream 
that makes you sing.



Magnolia

Return all dreams
to Mother Earth.

Call back the birds
to their sacred dwelling,
let the magic emerge from
each flower that blooms in the air
for life can sing in the morning
as the sun arises to kiss
the soil that sprouts sustenance
and mirrors itself over the ocean.

Let all animals dwell on the land
unharmed by arrows
in soul’s harmony
for we are one with all creation
heirs of its wisdom and glory
all eternal mysteries
while love
spins vigorously
giving birth
to inner beauty!
