The Future of Nepal
(For my friends in Nepal)

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
Naturally
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

Venezuela

Venezuela
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
Sparked
By The Way To Happiness
And
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
Colombia
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

For me
You are always 
In the future
Unless 
I go backwards
In the past
And meet you
Anyways

A poem

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