    Great poet,
    Immaculate writer,
    Juan takes the reader into his words and flies with them to the end.
    Wonderful imagination when needed and he also uses vivid images when recalling a memory.
    One of my personal favorites is Juan, keep up the grand work my brother.
    Always a pleasure reading your work.

    I read a lot of your poems and I think your poetry style is wonderfully natural. It just flows and unfolds beauty in words and meaning. I like the way you write them like you are just conversing the reader.

    Your poem was short this time, but I like it. I am used to your long poems

  • Smoky Hoss (8/31/2011 10:13:00 PM)

    Juan is a poet of intense abilities, he seems to see so much in life's happenings, in the world's movement, and then best of all he so articulately and wonderfully translates it all to us through his poetic vision. And we therefore are blessed to receive the fruits of his gift for writing. Read as much of his poetry as you can, you will be glad you did!

Best Poem of Juan Olivarez


Happiness is being home again,
Happiness is walking in the rain.
Happiness is waking with no pain.

Happiness to see my humble home,
Happiness at not being alone,
Happiness to sit, and not to roam.

Happiness is family to me,
Happiness in the faces, I longed to see,
Happiness is once more being free.

Read the full of Happiness


Little man blue with hair of gold,
lovely child new to my fold,
Beautiful blue eyes smiling at me,
Beautiful blue eyes, blue as the sea.

Little man blue you fell from above,
The good lord has sent you on the wings of a dove.
I wake in the mornings and still see your face,
And I smile at the child with the beautiful gaze.
