Preach

How grand it would be

yet so out of reach

 

If everyone would practice

what they preach.

Out of the Blue

You should materialize

in front of me right now

for I am bored and lonely

and life has no expectations.

 

You should come out of the blue

and bring me novelty

with your shining smile

and everything that is all I want.

 

You should read my thoughts

and tell me funny jokes

while you open a bottle of wine

made from the kind of grapes I like.

 

You should take your guitar

and turn my blues into music

and we would dance as if we knew how

and I would tell and you wouldn’t judge.

 

You should be the one who comes to aid

when things are broken beyond repair,

for you should try and fail and persist,

and you should be the one who is there.

Beauty

I looked for beauty

to fill up my eyes,

I looked for beauty

to wake up my soul

 

I looked and searched,

then beauty was quest.

I kneeled and tumbled,

then beauty was rest.

 

I looked for beauty

when I was hungry,

then I found beauty

in a pear.

 

I looked for beauty

when I was no one,

then I found beauty

in a stare.

 

I looked for beauty

when I was settled,

then I found beauty

in a scare.

 

I looked for beauty

then looked no more,

then I found beauty

everywhere.

El Viento

El viento que me acaricia

No sé de donde viene

Y no puedo preguntarle

Ni pedirle explicación

 

El viento que silva por la ventana

No tiene mensaje a dejarme

No tiene sabiduría

No habla de cielos y estrellas

Ni de filosofía

 

El viento que sopla en mi pelo

Solo quiere estar

Jugar y partir

No piensa quedarse

No avisa que viene

Tampoco que va

Su dulce presencia es momento

Y ¿qué hay más allá del momento?

Por cierto el viento

No lo sabrá.
