Gathering Around

a moment in life

a pleasure to live

in any way is fine


around a table 

in the house 

in the church 


with tears of joy

… or

with tears of sorrow 


it’s a unique joy

to share with others

the joy of gathering around 


(Hour 12-@Mejia)


A joyful moment 

A simple tiny expression 

Always a pleasure

Polite Blue Jay

Knocking at the window 

a polite Blue Jay 

asks for food


Singing impatiently

A polite Blue Jay

rejoices each morning


Eating gratefully 

A polite Blue Jay 

asks for more


Departing fastly

a polite Blue Jay

brings joy to my garden

Chocolate & Arepas

Hot cocoa brings me home

In cold days, 

Warm me up. 


Arepa brings me to Mom’s kitchen

In nostalgic moments, 

Comforts my soul. 


Mix ingredients

Round the dough, 

Put it on fire. 


Wait for a moment and… 

Get back home! 


(Hour 9-@Mejia) 

I am

I am from a big city

Where everyone is in a hurry 


No time for manners

Or gentle “good day” 

Not even a smile


I left the big city 

Looking for a small town 


I found the place

It is calm and friendly 


I always remember 

I am from a big city 


I left the big city 

I feel inspired 

In this tiny town 


Writing poems, reading and gardening

It is my new hobby in this nice place 


(Hour 8-@Mejia) 

My Adorable Misifu

One day arrived

Sick and pale 

Asking for care


How can I rufused 

This bull of fur

Helpless and fair


My adorable Misifu 

Adopted me

What a nice deed


Welcome to my house 

And my heart 

Adorable Misifu

We Are Not Strangers

sometimes we feel we are the only ones, 

until we travel and find…

new people and cultures.


sometimes we think we’re  trapped inside ourselves

until we realize…

there are other doors to go out. 


sometimes we are in our comfort zones, 

until we open our eyes…

to another way of life.


sometimes we ponder death is the end,

until we learn… 

it’ the beginning. 


sometimes we need to stop and reflect, 

until we realize…

we are not strangers. 

(Hour 6- @Mejia) 

A century

A hundred years ago,

My grandmother was born.

She witnessed war after war,

Waiting for better years to come.


A hundred years ago,

She was brave enough.

Nurture a big family,

And passed away in peace.
