La Luna and Our Ocean
The moon illuminates my mind
like a sun beam on a flower.
dreaming comes natural
to those with desire like
La Luna, releasing her emotions
and thoughts to the ocean,
an extension of me, her silhouette-my soul;
an affirmation of all the things I believe, I control
a motivation in me to be everything I can be
sitting under the fullness of the moon
soaking her energy.
"exploit your energy" she says to me,
between our cosmic connection-
dreaming comes natural,
"you can be anything you want to be".

Maternal Beauty Marks
veins of life, roots of earth,
rivers of rich blood traveling
through valleys- illustrations
of maternal growth
and children who've
burrowed beneath our skin
and our mothers',
maternal beauty marks.

sweet dreams and open hearts
There are moments—
I find my mind and my heart dancing together,
when one fights for future,
the latter sings to slow time.
I allow my heart to open wide
for little ears to listen, I try…
his eyes are shut, his fingers tapping the beat
of its dance, as he whispers its rhythmic sounds over.
his head buries further into my heart,
and I realize these are the moments
that one day will end.
her body lies stretched over mine,
her palm feeling the beat
of its dance, as she hums a melody
of somewhere id like to live forever.
her head buries further into my heart,
and I realize how quickly the moon awakes;
how each ‘sweet dreams’ is a moment of life passed.
There are moments my heart is open wide—
my soul unites my mind with it,
so together they can tap a melody
of sweet dreams and open hearts.
