About Me

Welcome to my page of poetry... May you find peace and inspiration here.



Que filtro embriagante
Me deste tu a beber?
Até me esqueço de mim
E não te posso esquecer...

What kind of magic potion
Did you give me from that jar?
That I forget who I am
But always know who you are...

-Florbela Espanca



When the owl sings, the night is silent. (Quand le hibou chante, La nuit est silence) - Charles de Leusse



"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."
- Dead Poets Society



“O, the sorrow of us all,
to wander the earth in a shell.
And looking to the heavens,
we lay to rest in hell.
The suffering of the innocent
in the midst of Jacob’s well.
How the miles fled between us,
and that distance is still great.
Though on the same shore we now sit,
in temporal quietude to wait.
The moon is our bright witness;
it will lead us to the gate.”
- An owl on the moon



“It was Hell, if hell is where the life we love cannot exist.” ― Jeanette Winterson



Let's say we both believe
That maybe all we need is time
Then maybe truthfully
We will be perfectly aligned
I don't care what they say
I am already awake
- Mree: Winter



“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde



“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald



“The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.”
― Fernando Pessoa

Someone is having a BIRTHDAY! BROTHER CRAIG... I'm not gay. But who says a straight man can't give his brother a hug and 😘 a kiss on the forehead lol. Can not forget a strong grip of a hand shake.

Happy Birthday, Craig... Love You Brother.

I have 3 submissions from Guate poets, plus my own. Waiting on a couple of more. I gave them until midnight tonight. I am working on the translations as we speak. The submissions I got were beautiful!
