Puerto Rican Passion | Pasión Puertorriqueña

DSC_0055

Añoro la misma pasión en mis compatriotas puertorriqueños para ponerle fin al colonialismo estadounidense en la isla.

I yearn for the same passion in my fellow Puerto Rican patriots in putting an end to American colonialism on the island.

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…

The Gift

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…

Poetisa Visitante: Ingrid Zetterberg | A mi compañero

Esta madrugada, me levanté de la cama porque tenía como misión leer algunos de los poemas de Ingrid Zetterberg, peruana.

https://siembradeamorblog.wordpress.com/2019/06/12/a-mi-companero/

Me encuentro en Irlanda, país famoso por sus paisajes. Al leer su poema (a mi compañero), claro que me gustaron el ritmo, las palabras y uso de la rima; pero más aún, la idea que evocaba: el paisaje más hermoso que hacía unos minutos había dejado en la cama, mi compañera.

Gracias por tus versos, Ingrid.

The Wonders of Yesteryear: Stonehenge

Some believe that life ceases to surprise us as we age –that boredom sets in. However, the wonders of the human spirit still surprise me –not necessarily the spirit of my contemporaries, as I fear we have become victims of predictability. It’s our more “primitive” ancients that inspire my amazement.

I’ve strolled along the path at Stonehenge and admired the stones, carefully placed in their formations. I was struck with awe and wonder. What could Stonehenge have been five thousand years ago? What secrets and mysteries do the stones protect? I imagine tribes and nations coming before its priests and priestesses at the stones to consult the awesomeness of their gods –stones surrounded by forest, veiling and creating unfathomable mystery, fires burning high and illuminating the greatness of our human spirit.

I’m reminded of old Hebrew verses in the Tanakh & Christian Old Testament,
