author website

Dear Friends and Fam,

I just launched my official author website.  I'm so excited! Please take a look around and when you click on my meme it shows you a clip of one of my performances at the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe.
Hope you like it and share away...

first frost

frost
on grass
like broken
glass
twinkling
in the AM
hesitantly
waiting
for my
lens
lens.

Mi Amiguis

Mi Amiguis, My friend

excerpt of poem
dedicated to: Ericka

singing in the car
going to the gym
then let's eat "healthy"
clinking wine goblets
make sure they shine
people watching
in

SoBe
The Mile
Key West

friends
agreeing
disagreeing
agreeing

last minute plans

a friend like Ericka

Mi Amiguis

old soul

she calmly said
change
and I'll wash
your jeans

when Chloe
sat on my lap
and peed on me

ssssssssssssss

disaster averted

with poolside
chats

rants
laughs

with friends
that's
so funny
so funny

My "planner"
grading party
partner

Erickita.

la belleza oculta

aqui

en California
cerca del mar
cerca del autopista

el primero de noviembre
con la belleza oculta

en mis libretas
con corazones
y palabras
sutiles
suaves
silvestres

el amor que te tengo
me averguenza

el amor que te tengo
es fragil

el amor que te tengo
me domina
me controla

el amor que te tengo
es obsesiva

el amor
no es asi
dicen los libros

y los poemas
de amor

en Egipto
en la Biblia
en los otros

libros que yo se
y debo conocer

el amor

el amor
esta aqui

aunque lo niege
aunque diga
que estoy bien
estoy
bien

sin ti.
sin ti.
Flor Rosada no tan silvestre. 2017, Stella Santamaria

dedicado a mi amor, Mauricio.

excerpt from "the orange moon as a bulb"

California pink sunset with words inspired in Hawaii.  2017, Stella Santamaria


the hand at the end of
my vision was yours
always yours.

Dedicated to:  Mauricio, my love.

el colibri

el colibri

Vi un colibri hoy.
El colibri me recuerda
del amor que te tengo
y la razon de estar aqui

en este lugar
lejos del mar

aqui
el colibri
se aparecio
cuando mire
hacia arriba
como magia

magico
magica
como yo

el colibri
me recuerda
de mis dias
en Africa
en Asia
en las islas
en Cuba

y aqui
en lo profundo
del mar
mirando hacia
arriba

aqui

aqui juegan los
ninos
los ninos
