    I read a lot of your poems and I think your poetry style is wonderfully natural. It just flows and unfolds beauty in words and meaning. I like the way you write them like you are just conversing the reader.

    Juan is a poet of intense abilities, he seems to see so much in life's happenings, in the world's movement, and then best of all he so articulately and wonderfully translates it all to us through his poetic vision. And we therefore are blessed to receive the fruits of his gift for writing. Read as much of his poetry as you can, you will be glad you did!

Best Poem of Juan Olivarez

Happiness

Happiness is being home again,
Happiness is walking in the rain.
Happiness is waking with no pain.

Happiness to see my humble home,
Happiness at not being alone,
Happiness to sit, and not to roam.

Happiness is family to me,
Happiness in the faces, I longed to see,
Happiness is once more being free.

What Is War

The little boy on his fathers lap
asked with expression sore
I know i am small but i want to be told
daddy what is war?

war my son is where people die,
where old men suffer and women sigh,
where children hunger, where babies cry,
where trees won't grow please don't ask why.
