It ain't superstition
Or a flash in the pan
Something belittled
As a mental quirk

You are lucky, brother
When you got 
That instant understanding

You can be proud, sister
When you can be something

When there is
That clear notion
That you know
I wish you courage
And all the fun
When you embrace
Your intuition

The Pirate Queen 

(For Jay-Jay Juliette)

I am the one

Who knows
Where to find
The Horn of Plenty

The Treasure’s Vault
And the Strait
To Infinity 

I have lived
On a Sailing Ship
My life is like sailing
Across the Waters

My eyes are 
The Diamonds
I once collected
Under palm trees
Across the Equator

I am your Pirate Queen 
I share the Horn of Plenty 
Stories of far and away
And the Wisdom 
Of my Soul

Chandra speaking

(For Chandra Marsden)

With my music
I take you 
To your
Home universe

I see
And hear
My eyes 
And ears

My name means
I can be
Your viewpoint 
Of life

Speaking with horses
(Eleonora Iv)

I tell you
With my attitude
And my touch 

I love your nobility
And your loyalty 
While you carry me
Wherever I want to go

The Romans
Founded this little place
Where later
Even the Vikings passed by
In their flat boats
On the old bent Rhine

Green grass
Never smells fresher
On a late summer morning
Or an evening
In the beginning of May

Those are memories
Of my youth

Josi Valerio

You have made it
Your mission 
To help others 
The inner beauty 
That they are 

This is
How others 
Know you 

And you do all this
Your way of life
From a silence
No wavelength 
No location

It is this
What I see 
When we see

Great things never come from the comfort zone!

I came from a land
Far away
You might not even know
Where to find it
On a map

But I decided
To take my life
One step further
Into the unknown
What I want

Ever since I was
A few years old
I knew
Great things only happen
Outside the comfort zone

For Alejandra Chavarria

I am a goddess
But I created this form
Out of flesh and blood
So you can see me

And I have seen
All the temples
And the halls
Of knowledge

And found
That they wrote
What I already

I am here
To show you
That your path of life
Is uniquely yours

I may appear
As a goddess to you
But the truth of the matter is
It's just simply me

For vocalist Diana Bellini

I am the princess of dawn 
A messenger of the gods

In fact

I can take you 
To the Phantom 
Of the Opera
Through a song
Or play from Cats

As I may seem  
I have to stand
With two feet
On this planet
Just like you

Hear my song
Or look at me
Either way
I am here
To sing 
For anyone of you

(For performance artist Megan Kashat)

How you are performing
On a stage in front of
All these men
Who had themselves
Go through all those
Wanky animalisms
To come out
The other end
With one thought only
Damn, you are alive, girl!
And you make your life
And livingness
A piece of art
Flying by
In a Mach 2.5 Raptor jet
And shredding a guitar
Putting Steve Vai to shame
How you make women
Seeing you perform
Feeling jealous and amazed
About what a being
Can do with a woman's body
And when they got themselves
Straightened out
They realize
Damn, you are alive, girl!
I love your paintings
I really do
And how fire
Is coming out of your eyes
And your thoughts
In your words
There is only one thing more
I have to tell you now
Damn it, girl, you are alive !

The Future of Nepal
(For Janakee Gautam)

Once there was
A gentleman 
Who decided
Life could only
Be lived
Outside palace walls

Gautama Siddharta
Lived a simple life
And taught
You are a spirit
Which rules
This physical universe

From the roof
Of the world
Called Nepal
This simple thought
Brought culture
And prosperity
To part
Of this world

The essence
Of his message
Remains the same
This path back
Has been streamlined
But we will always remember
When the Enlightened One
Was here and where
As for once
It was and always is Nepal

Is my Venezuela too

Venezuela means
Little Venice
From the moment
Spanish sailors
Saw houses on poles
In Lake Maracaibo
In 1499
And it reminded them
Of that well-known place
In Northern Italy
An unstoppable wave
Is rolling over South America
A strong awakening desire
For freedom
By The Way To Happiness
The Universal Declaration
Of Human Rights
People saw
Oppressive conditions
Can change
Once they chance
From within
As was so clearly
The message
From beautiful
Such desire
For a better life
Becomes unstoppable
Once it is tasted
Even to the slightest degree
And it can drive suppressives mad
As it currently does
In Venezuela
Anything done
That brings anyone
In Little Venice
Closer to his own
True nature
Is a final defeat
To such oppression
My heart
Is with Venezuela
Beauty at the sea
You are free

For you

Right now
For me
You are always 
In the future
I go backwards
In the past
And meet you

A poem

Yes, you flourished for me
Because I well know
You once were a flower 
And then
Found out
You are
The most beautiful
That ever lived
With a life
That will go on

Oblivion... the Ultimate Revenge
There is a Chapter written
In a Book that was authored
Once, when darkness fell
Over this universe

It's the Final Act
The last resort
The ultimate destruction
Of anything good
That is around

So sure these few
Dark souls are
About their plight

You can recognize them
By characteristics
That can be studied
And they are arrogant
Beyond believe
Their goal is
Total oblivion
Erasure of awareness
And decency
No more able beings
And a planet full of
Lethargic zombies
Drugged into a sleep
That's what
Those dark souls call
The ultimate revenge
Because able beings
Are bigger and stronger
We can see this war
Going on
And I am going to raise
A victorious
Trumpet call
Around you see
Those warriors arise
Like you
Superior in intend
And greatest good
We win
As long as we stick
Together as a team
A group
An undeniable force
And we are!

Philosophy of miracle

All the power that you have 
Will come down
To a simplicity

No need to make things
More complex
Than they are

And you take life
For a fact
And there you are

So how about
A philosophy
A system of thought

A philosophy of miracle
Would boil down
To one simple fact

You are it

Jacaranda Street

I will come on over now

Fly by night
Or run by day
Take that boat
Or hitch the way
Roll that bike
Or by any means
My heart beats stronger 
And memories fly on by
Nothing to give you 
Than those wild eager eyes
Cause I will meet you
Down in the middle 
Of Jacaranda Street

More than a smile

There is more
To it
That the eye meets
To take a smile
For granted

With that laughable
Degree of shortsightedness

There is wisdom
Behind every smile

And I know
You love your life
Your rain
And your shine
And the wisdom
We see
In your eyes

There's no one 
Who has the right

To make a life
And living out of
Pointing out
To you
There is enough
In you
To be
Pointed out

And so it is
For anyone
Of us

Remembering you

At any point
In your life
Fourty two years ago
Or maybe
Last week
There can be
A moment
When you see
That face
You hear
That voice
You read
Those words
All you think
Happily again
That one thought
Remembering you

Woman in a little red

If you saw me walking
Down the road
Out in the countryside
In Tuscany
Nobody around
And you drove that beautiful
Little red car
It was one of those
Hot days
At noon
And you saw me walking there
Chewing on a straw
And you got two thousands
Crossing your mind
All at the same time
And your heartbeat
Is going faster
Would you stop
For me

 Your dreams

I have been looking
For a long time
For the answer
To this riddle
Of where these stars
Come from

You told me 
The secret
That you whispered
In my ear

Each dream 
You ever had
Was put there
In the sky
By you

Now I have stopped
But I definitely 
Have started looking

Every time 
I look
I see each of them
Turning into a dream

I remembered
While I stand here
At the same place 
Where I played
In my childhood years

I was smaller then
And yet
It seemed
I was bigger

I am a woman now
A lover
I feel
From within

But the greatest
Memory of all
Which I keep alive
Is how I carelessly
Played and played
Those little waves
At my feet

Going back to Spain

I know

You left
Your country 
For a better future
But now
You're brave enough
To go back
To Spain

It is never ever
With a happy heart
Leaving your country
And your people
Being a duchess
With your heart
Ending up

How I wished
To see you happy
In coming back
To Spain

And see
Your land
Is still there
And the fountains
And the music
The beaches
And your memories
And the people
Who have waited
For you for so long
And I would love
To see you happy
Coming back
To Spain

I know
Life's battles
And you can 
End up

I can not
Carry your pain
This was done
And does not
The pain
Of your wounds

But I can
Show you
Where you can
Heal yourself
And arm yourself
For the future

In fact
You know
Where to go
From here

It hurts me
To see
A wounded warrior

You can get stronger
From within
I can never
Do this for you
Even if I really wanted
To do this

I have seen
Who you are
And what you will achieve

Heal yourself
You are beautiful
And strong

We need
Like you

Not for mortal battles

But for
The freedom
Of yourself
And others

I will always know
That you are there
