Puerto Rican Passion | Pasión Puertorriqueña

DSC_0055

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

–Luis S. González-Acevedo


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

Poetic Breeze

My books of poetry (the first in Spanish, the second in English) highlight the word “breeze.” I fear that the complete impact of the word’s meaning can be lost. Its poetic significance can only be experienced when you’ve felt a Caribbean breeze soothe your skin from a blistering summer day in Old San Juan or caress you on a humid afternoon in Puerto Rico’s mountains.DSC_0055

If you’d like to experience both, visit Puerto Rico. Do what I did this summer and bring a copy of my books (Caribbean Poet and/or Poemas Caribeños) to Puerto Rico and you’ll fully understand what I’m talking about.

My wife and I enjoyed this Airbnb mountain house in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico this summer:
