Near Written Rock, Princess Taína splashes waters round her body by the river’s bank.
When you see her, –like the poet about Innisfree– this whisper from your lips will pour:
“I hear it in the deep heart’s core,”
where her image leaves an everlasting brand
as her eyes foreshadow the Puerto Rican poet’s chant
about the world being illuminated by the memory of her gaze.
Princess of your lustful Hell, she’ll set your soul ablaze.
Interlocking eyes aflame will set as seals upon your hearts,
even if your cherished love is severed wide, oceans apart
and even after your demise at Prince Connell’s Grave.
–The Poetic Story of Princess Taína & Prince Connell’s Wild Atlantic Love will be featured in my novel stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal in April of 2021–
