I've written this poem to celebrate the divine feminine expressed in the nature, in our dear mother Earth, and in ourselves. I got inspired while walking in one of my favourite parks in Asturias. The picture was also taken there.  Read More

This poem talks about the flowing of life within us. I wrote it originally in Spanish, but I've also included an english translation.

I don't usually make changes in my poems after I've written them, but with this one I made an exception because I felt the need to do so after reading it again a few days ago. Anyway, this is the final version, so it will remain as it is now (well, if you have any suggestion to improve the english version or if there's any grammatical mistake, please feel free to tell me).

A candle in the night

And he smiled.
A rainbow of feelings
exploded in my heart.
I want more, I want more...
there would never be enough!

And I dreamed.
I wanted to fly and touch
any of the stars glowing at night,
and take it and give it to him
and shine all together in a magic love.

Smile with me!
Dream with me!
Let's fly to the sky and light a star!
Close your eyes and find me,
I'm the one with a candle in the night.

This is my first poem written directly in English instead of in Spanish. I've been trying for a while to write poetry in English to see how it feels. Any journey starts with one step, and this is my little one :-)  Read More

 Her birthday (su cumpleaños)15 comments

This morning I've wakened up with one year more. Is this event so important in my life to celebrate it? My answer it YES! You never know if you're going to have another birthday. Last August 9th could have been my last day in this life, no more birthdays for me. But I'm still here in this world and I would love to celebrate each of those days. But as 365 days of party would be too much, at least I'm going to celebrate this special day with my family and friends.

What else can I wish this day apart from what I have right now: life, a home and people who I love and who love me?. Well, yes, I have another wish, I wish the same that I have for every being in this world. I'm not as happy as I was in my previous birthdays, because tears are coming to me everytime I watch the news about the tragedy left by Katrina. There, many people won't have a birthday anymore, and many more don't have a home, food, water, medicines... they feel lost and hopeless. And I feel helpless. My wish for this year is that they will be able to recover their lives as soon as possible, and that those children will have a much better future than their current present.

Thinking about the hopeless feeling I remembered this poem, that I wrote two years ago for one of my best friends in her birthday, she was suffering a pretty strong depression and was feeling hopeless. Her daughter and her parents were very sad for her, as I was too. Fortunately she's much better now. As always, I'm including also the Spanish original version.  Read More

I found sometime ago in internet these 'advices' for life, saved the document and since then I like reading it carefully pretty often. We already know those advices but it's good to remember them from time to time. I hope you'll enjoy reading them as much as I do.  Read More

 Tell me, baby... (Dime, niña...)7 comments

I wonder why children cry at night. My mother told me that I cried almost every night when I was a baby, and my niece did the same in her first years. Babies still don't have to worry about their future, no job to do, no responsabilities... but they cry. Do they have any fear? Do they feel lost?

This simple poem was inspired one night by these thoughts.

I wrote the poem 'Tomorrow' in a difficult period of my life, trying to keep my hope and thinking that better times would come ahead.
