~President's Day~

(Rhyming couplets)





Today in the USA we honor two great men

They both did wonderful deeds for our country,Amen.



George Washington,is our founder father,

Lincoln abolished slavery 'mong brother.



These two great men had very good intentions,

They gave their all and meant to relieve tensions.



They both believed in their hearts what was best,

And fought for what was right and passed their test.



In my heart I do really admire these two great men,

They believed on something and acted on that back then.



History praise and sees them as heroes today,

They were great men, and get my respect in 'very way.

Sonnet: Edgar

~Sonnet:Edgar

(1809-1849)







Today in history, great day you see

Not only we're celebrating MLK day,

But 'cause long ago in a day like today;

The great poet Edgar A.Poe was born too.



On a winter day to this world he came,

Both of his parents were actors,died young;

Born in Boston, great writer; poet became

He resided in England till few years sprung.



Attended university back home again,

For only a year he did it they claim

Edgar's drinking,gambling,has seized his brain

But back in Boston his first book, brought him fame.



His fame as an author and poet spread wide,

In old Baltimore,Edgar A. Poe, died.

Howl Revisited

     (for Allen Ginsberg)



I saw the best minds as

the stray dogs

of my generation,

wagging their fluffy tails,

howling apocalyptic

announcements in buses

and on subways trains,

in supermarkets and

colleges campuses--

barking about something

extremely important

like Kafka and busty blondes,

revealing the utter banality

of our ever collapsing

Western civilization,

reminiscent of some Goya

paintings, smudged with lipstick,

rouge, powders and mascara--

they were barking about

seasonal changes, orgasms,

and wars, presidential

elections, tampons and

brassieres,

caressing the pages with

full breasts, six pack bellies

and rising temperatures,

invoking revolutions,

erections and the first

amendment,

they were smoking Zen pipes

and snorting powdered

guacamole, mixing French

parlance with tea sipping

haiku moments,

they were starting arsons

and putting out forest fires,

they were saving the Amazon

and subverted the morale

of plugged up toilets

of our inner social fabric,

humping away at the foundations

of the sociopolitical structure,

because you knew, and we all

knew, as surely as the Pope

shits in the woods,

that the breakthrough

begins by embracing the animal,

by stripping away

the absurd conventions of

the literary establishment,

and doing away with the moral

bankruptcy of the power elite--

so the poets barked naked

and howled into the crowds

in the bitter cold of winter

and the oppressive heat of

summer--

they walked out nude,

armed with toilet plungers,

manuscripts, wrenches,

and weapons of mass destruction,

engaging in acts of poetic

terrorism at airport poetry

readings, bypassing airport

security, exploding poetic

bombs in airplane restrooms,

getting drunk and picking

That elusive smile



Has been around for very long.



That elusive smile



shows a lady that's fill'd of guile



Leonardo paint'd her,made her a song



She keeps her secrets all along



That elusive smile.

love note to my young niece....

you are MY big baby since you are my heart

you've held my attention from the start

from caterpillar,to butterfly

it will soon be time to let you fly

but don't forget that in my eyes

young niece, you'll not ever need to disguise

or feel alone as you live and try

i am at your side by and by....



the woman you've become today

will grow and elevate in every way

but always know auntie has your back

with prayers to shield your life from lack

with a word to help pick up the slack

and ears to hold your secrets back

my butterfly may your beauty glow

reflecting love as you grow....

Author's Notes/Comments: 

to my nieces, an ode to you!
