Biography
I started writing poetry while I was still in college and although the content of my poetry has changed quite a bit (not as much angst and broken hearts) , my style remains much the same. My favorite poets are Margaret Atwood, Marge Piercy, Maya Angelou and Pablo Neruda, to name a few.

Of people she’ll meet, their stories, their faces
Wishing that time would quickly go by

Concrete Spider
Up, up
The smooth and glassy surface of my shower
He crawled
His delicate spindly legs glued, as if by magic

To swim in you

Quiero Annabel ~ My hopes rose when I saw the title of Today's Poem: a rondel! I am not disappointed. At last, a really excellent poem in this slot. I'm a friend through the mail of Gerardo Hernandez: one of your Five imprisoned Heroes. One of his poems I translated is on my page. I'm writing him a letter this weekend. I'm going to send him your poem. Can I give him a message from you? Volveran!
