El Esqueleto-The Skeleton (Free verse)
El Esqueleto-The Skeleton
The heart bleeds
Soaking up the waters of blood red,
Yet, what lies within,
Is nori, something wonderful,
Instinctual and primitive.
White wash of innocence
Breaks up a doubting soul,
Swimming through a red sea,
Focused on self-reliance.
Let the arms rise and sink, in sync,
Set sights on
Honesty, givingness and learning,
Dedications to begin with.
Cactus on land,
You are no lover of mine
When I look at you,
I see suffocation and strife,
I yearn for space.
Your prickly spines stand tall,
Pushing others away,
I know thorny issues lie below,
All the sorrow and unhappiness,
Between a man and a woman.
Now I am,
A floating board of charcoal,
Stripped down of
Vitality, power and significance,
Bare bones rattling a tune.
Loss and change,
Strut and strum,
The guitara’s chords,
Yet, feel and see above,
A four-leaf clover.
Resolutions and solutions on their way,
Protection against wrong doings,
Healing the soreness and tiredness,
Finding the country road within,
Finding the heart within my country.
Find the country road within, means to find
