Maria C. Pires Costa Poems
From Destruction To Reconstruction
From images of devastation,
deep pain, and sometimes even revolt,
come before our eyes living tokens
of humanitarianism, solidarity, cooperation -
noble life lessons encompassing courage
springing from all the ones who truly act
with deep respect for Nature
and for the human being dignity.
Children's eyes are sad and distant-looking
as if they still were feeling the unlimited strength
of the giant waves moving! !
Brave young people keep projecting their dreams -
across a land that is now more sacred -
as though those dreams were being ...
So Is It...
It is to have and not to have
It is joy and sorrow
In everyday since dawn
It is to work, to act, to remember
It is to know how to forgive, it is to love.
It is time clockwise moving
In every moment an awakening
It is life we respect
