dromahair, county leitrim, ireland

springfield, ohio

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

celestial topaz warms you as its blazing strands fall
they warm me with their radiating dance
in step, sprinkles fall from cotton balls
floating in the sapphire expanse
emerald bumps and dips of space
–precious contours of my atlantic isle–
kisses of speckled whites and dots erase
my frown and paint a smile
shades of green flank your river’s bank
the bonet’s diamond face in its perpetual race
of waters flows into lough gill’s flask
feeding life to specks of white –what loving task!
while rippling into foam along the way
the reflection in river bonet’s glass
that face of melting clay:
it’s me
be it the last of myself I see
sitting on a megalithic river isle, i’ll stare
with peaceful gaze of soul, it’s you i’ll seek
and as life in me grows weak,
i’ll drown in love for you, my dromahair

dromahair, county leitrim, ireland will appear in a future book of poems & stories (release date | July 2021)–

The Poetic Story Of Princess Taína


Prince Connell’s Wild Atlantic Love

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.


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



gorumna island, ireland

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.”

Of the many things to love about Ireland, I like how you can get to the middle of nowhere in no-time and somewhere just as quickly. It’s important that you lose your fear of getting lost. If you venture into Ireland’s less traveled paths, you’ll be as fortunate as we were when we arrived at Dysert O’Dea Castle  in County Clare.
