Days

Abue I wrote a poem today:
“Love Song to the Tarasque”
gently wrapped in your robozo
a shroud against the loneliness

I wrote of how I longed to understand
I wrote of how I struggled to find courage
I wrote of how I too carried love like a gift
I wrote until my hands ached

Sitting with you deep en mi sangre
stirring deep within my heart
dawn is breaking on this feast
this is a dragon’s return

dedicated to my father Dionisio, my mother Susana Stella, my grandmothers Abue and Tita and my Grandpapa
