Los Flores de la Luna


No one in the world
Be quite like you
With honeysuckle eyes

Happiness and sad
Flow through my roots
Like time through sand

I have seen the
Ever blooming lotus,
To grace these lips
Life’s most humorous

Happiness and sad
Flow through my roots
Like time through sand

Above all others
You are a flower
Growing ever more
Vibrant hour by hour

Happiness and sad
Flow through my roots
Like time through sand

All flowers will fade
As beauty will too,
But a beautiful mind
Will always remain new

Happiness and sad
Flow through my roots
Like time through sand

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
