Guillermo Veloso Poems
Glistening under the African sun Taino heat rising through her, The scent of rum and sea,
The poetry of a blind man Is not metered In contrast hue or color It is textured
A Dangerous Rose
Face the sun Face the moon Face the stars Face yourself
A single lost rose Abandoned on the road Blood red on asphalt black A discarded thought
We pack our time in Bundles of 10 Each year a fractal of the greater life Time and passage
La Marea No Perdona
Te dejo ahora Y por cierto Ya llego la hora de Lola Suelta ya las sogas
Best feed the black dog Its chalky milk Surrender to its subtle growl Allow it space
Peace Be With You, My Brother
You have bitten my arm and Drawn blood Peace be with you my brother You have gnawed my bones and
My Wild God Blooms
I live with a wild god Of no face Of no voice Of no intent
Have you ever seen the sun at midnight? Have you ever felt the cool rain on a cloudless day? Have you ever run your toes through the tall grass on a city street? Have you ever made love to a lover on a loveless night?
Love lost when is love lost? When fallen kisses and caresses Are shadows on the neck and lip
Earth As Woman
Giving, full and ripe Brazen treacherous Jealous of her seas Worn and new
Somewhere Far Away
Somewhere an ocean spreads on a sleeping beach Somewhere a wave falls red with krill Somewhere a blue whale leaps in scaffold breach Somewhere a tern paints an arctic sky
Pasted on the walls
Silent witness to the day’s progress
Weed Wackers and Cloud/ cat and sun/ aquarium waterfall and creeks edge
Silent fisherman hauls in his wooden catch
Day passes in silence....
The days are slower as a child
Quiet as the world labors...
The sun is gentler and the birds are friendlier
