Hummingbird, hummingbird, bright green and blue,
My heart is aflutter just seeing you!
I am transfixed by the way your wings shine—
Hummingbird, hummingbird, bright and benign!

the dragonflies still whisper
in an unknown tongue.

Blue Monday: Numbers

San Miguel.house numbers
Numbers on a house, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México.
 


The house numbers done in blue tile
Make everyone passing by smile.
They’re bright and they’re neat,
To see them’s a treat,
A sight that is always worthwhile.

Blue Monday: Banderas

A street festooned with blue banderas, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


What’s a celebration without a flag or two?
It really doesn’t matter if they’re red or blue,
As long as they can flutter high above the street,
While the people down below laugh and drink and eat.

I hold her close

 photo DSC_0325_zpsoafdi45w.jpg
Mother and child out for an early morning stroll, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 

I hold her close, this daughter of mine,
I hold her close to my heart.
Lest something evil tear her away,
Or even tear her apart.
 
The pangs I endured when she was born
Were nothing to me, for love
Hopes and endures and believes all things,
Empowered by God above.

Prayer for My Daughter

Virgin in disguise
A wall hanging depicting an indigenous mother and her daughter, Fábrica La Aurora, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


The day of her birth was six years ago—
How quickly my daughter has grown!
The fruit of my womb is graceful and fair—
I’m happy to call her my own!
 
I pray for this child, the fruit of my womb,
I pray for her both night and day;
I ask that the gods will grant her the strength
To follow a right and true way.
