    On an Eagle's Wings

    I was a prey, though I knew my captor very well
    Yes, I saw him coming, yet I let him take me somehow
    Into his world…. into his dormain
    He lifted me way up to the sky on his Eagle's wings
    What an experience it was, one I cannot forget
    For it would marvel anyone just to see and feel what I have!
    The pleasure of flying so high, being held by your Eagle, as you fly
    Teaching you all that you don't know, yet holding you very close
    Helping you develope and grow… yes!
    Those Eagle's wings took me away, to a paradise I must say
    One where life can stay very still, yet you don't realize that you have your fill,
    Of life’s pleasures, which are simple yet, many can't seem to see,
    What it means when they set you free!
    As I traveled through many lands, that my Eagle surely knew,
    I was mesmerized by what I found,
    To be the simplest pleasure of life!
    I can't wait to experience this again,
    With my Eagle and on his wings, where he will carry me
    To places unknown to me while holding me tenderly.
    Tell me my Eagle now, why are you so high up the cloud?
    Can't you come down to me, so I can fly away with thee!

    No sabes una de un pitirre. Solo se me ocurre que
    no se si fue Jose de Diego el que escribio un librito
    de poesia que se llama el pitirre. No se porque pero
    me parece que en ese o quizas fue en otro de sus libritos
    de poesia vi una de las Poesias de Jose de Diego:

    (perdon, por si me equivoco, pues no tengo ningun
    poemario de Jose de Diego, prefiero a nuestro
    poeta nacional). Creo que va algo asi:

    En La Brecha

    Ah, desgraciado si el dolor te abate
    y .......... sus miembros entumese,
    haz como el arbol seco,
    REVERDECE
    o como el germen enterrado, late.
    ....................

    No haz de balar como el cordero triste,
    Sino rugir como la fiera ruge,

    ...............................

    Como el toro acorralado,
    MUJE
    o como el toro que no muje
    EMBISTE

    (eso es una version nuyorican)

    Y si alguien se la sabe, la de la isla por favor
    posteenla aqui. Gracias,

    Basta Ya!
    Venceremos!
    Paz Para Vieques
    y para el Mundo!

      Gracias por tus palabras, lo aprecio mucho con toda sinceridad. Aqui te pongo el poema que mencionaste. Espero que lo disfrute tanto como lo he hecho.

      Tu hermana de corazon!



      EN LA BRECHA
      José de Diego



      ¡Ah desgraciado si el dolor te abate,
      si el cansancio tus miembros entumece!
      Haz como el árbol seco: reverdece
      y como el germen enterrado: late.


      Resurge, alienta, grita, anda, combate,
      vibra, ondula, retruena, resplandece...
      Haz como el río con la lluvia: ¡crece!
      Y como el mar contra la roca: ¡bate!


      De la tormenta al iracundo empuje,
      no has de balar, como el cordero triste,
      sino rugir, como la fiera ruge.


      ¡Levántate!, ¡revuélvete!, ¡resiste!
      Haz como el toro acorralado: ¡muge!
      O como el toro que no muge: ¡embiste!

                    Thank you again for our comments. This poem is one of my favorite still. I wrote it about two months ago on one of my trips. I usually carry a journal when I travel. I write the old fashion way, long hand since I don't care to carry my lap top all the time.

                    I saw your poem I will comment shortly.

                    Con Cariño
