The Poetic Story Of Princess Taína

&

Prince Connell’s Wild Atlantic Love

by Luis S. González-Acevedo


Note: After the poem, you’ll find an Explanation of Terms. The explanations will enhance your understanding of The Poetic Story Of Princess Taína & Prince Connell’s Wild Atlantic Love. I recommend you read the Explanation of Terms first.


I

Cross the Emerald Isle once more,
my Corracloona Prince and Leitrim Lord.
Easterlies will sail you –Connell– to her river’s ford.
But first, wage your loving war against the ocean’s roars,
that you may proudly disembark upon her island’s shores.
Thrust through the winding paths of Rich Port’s forest
as Taína’s prickling rains drown your Irish soul in peaceful rest
and guide you toward the island’s tropic center.
There, you’ll be compelled to render
your heart by love distressed.

Near Written Rock, Princess Taína splashes waters round her body by the river’s…

Poem… gorumna island, ireland

 

gorumnaisland


gorumna island, ireland

–june 18, 2019–
gorumna island, county galway, ireland

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

on gorumna island, i spent my days
greeting the tides
with my eyes in a daze.
on gorumna island, i spent my days
bidding the same tides farewell
hours after their swell.
on gorumna island, i spent my days
entranced by the spell
as the setting sun sang, “my boy, all is well.”

gorumna island, ireland will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–


 

Poema… La Llorona | poema en tres actos

La Llorona | poema en tres actos

–4 de junio de 2019–
reykjavík, islandia

por Luis S. González-Acevedo

i. encuentro | cerca del árbol…
Llorona…
oscuridad y neblina vierten tus cascadas
el árbol te protege de la nieve con sus sombras
el viento de tristeza corta con su dolor helado
pero me seduce consolarlas:
a ti y la hierba que contigo llora,
al orquestar la angustia de un flamenco gitano.
ii. amor | en mi alma…
Llorona…
los destellos de tus ojos alimentan la aurora boreal.
dientes de azúcar, labios de caña,
lengua del cañaveral,
besos de melao…
cuando mi vida sea del pasao,
ojalá seas la flor que nace ante mi lápida.
iii. rapto | hacia el río…
Llorona…
tus llantos son el fruto de mi guayabal.
llévame, ahógame en guarapo de caña;
y si no me llevas, te sigo a lo profundo,
–enfrentando cualquier mal–
para que las aguas de tu rebozo
nos cubran con el llanto de tus ojos,
con la corriente de su río.
no llores por quien amaste, Llorona.
sonríe por quien te ama y no traiciona.

La Llorona | poema en tres actos será publicado en un libro de poemas e historias en julio 2020–

The Gift

–april 11, 2018–

by Luis S. González-Acevedo


June 2150, 7:30 a.m. | Eduardo was the first one up. Mother had assigned him to yard duty for the celebration, and he wanted to make Father happy. The abundant sunshine pouring through his bedroom window was a gift for those special “someones” throughout the land. Salvador –Eduardo’s father– was one of those special someones.
Father’s Day would be like no other for Salvador. Mother outdid herself –yes, she did! As Eduardo considered his mother’s commitment to his father’s happiness, he hoped to find someone…

Poem… night king, lord of the white walkers

night king, lord of the white walkers

–june 5, 2019–
reykjavík, iceland

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

“winter is coming,”
night’s snowflakes cry.
the wicked season’s ice is roaring
as the fires die
and charcoal chills spill toward our wall.
warning: the frozen barrier will soon fall.
HBO revealed you
as we fed you and scurried to your rescue.
such unpardonable sins!
so true!
such nonsense…
making us believe you died…
you didn’t? i know!
you’re waiting for emotions to subside
but when kindness and our brains grow cold,
this and more will show
that you escaped the screen & stream,
making your way into reality.
now, you lie in wait –you fiend,
sustained by our banality.
such fun… the violence,
glorified quirks & kills,
the dulling of good sense,
–of the beautiful, of course–
not the ugly and the currency wasters.
i’m ashamed to admit that you were fun,
unlike watching the melting of glaciers.
as we approach life without the sun,
i thank you, and i’m grateful.
what? what did you say, again?
is winter still coming?
does it hope that i consent?
but it regardless shall arrive…
when this final season comes,
and with great relief the moon sighs,
when all light from humanity runs:
i beg you, Bran Stark, just say goodbye…
forget me on that night,
erase all memory of me, just let it die.

night king, lord of the white walkers will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–
