She appears

She appears
dazzling
eight legs

eight eyes

tattooed
tattooed
on my neck

she peaks
out

from my
neck
my
black
turtleneck

she appears

dazzling
eyes
dark
mesmerizing

She
She has legs

eight

She has eyes

eight

infinitely.

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

and there she "doe"s

Cali doe. 2017, Stella Santamaria

the doe and mama
got out of the way
as we were on our way

the baby looked
behind

looked at us

a key deer
key deer

in Cali

small, dainty
bouncy feet
bouncy legs
bouncy. bouncy

galloping past
hooves in the air
like Rudolph on Santa's sleigh

shiny black hooves aerial
on the still grey night concrete

nine
Pacific

midnight
in the Keys
Keys.

clackety, clack. clack.

baby and mama deer
doe
fawn
doe
and fawn.

safe across the border
across the highway
across the free way

Safe
Safe from Irma

Safe.

from the child manned stands
Maryland


West Coast
East Coast
roses grow
wild
on the West Coast

East Coast
need to be kept in the shade
watered
honey spoon fed
by

butterflies

why haven't you written a poem

why haven't you written
a poem? 

el amor es la unico
que vale la pena

mi amor es unica
ella es tierna
silvestre


como lavanda

like lavender
wild, purple and free

like your third eye
amethyst violet
nonviolent

your crown
chakra

chakras
rainbow synergism
energy centers

centros de energia

love

free

wild mustard
over the valley

in a sea
of smiley emoji sunshine yellow
flowers

Napa

Napa

your dark scarlet hair strands
loose
from your wild rose & white orchid bouquet

blown
from St. Helena

from D.C.

to here
here
here.

like a peppermint
candy cane
in May.

Magic. 707.

Magic.
Beauty, Beautiful Shadow.  facing me.  the sun to my back. facing the avocado tree out back.
buttery rich matte red shimmering in the Miami sun.  same moonlight. planetary reflections.
Magic. I am magic. Magic. Magical. a red rose. a 707 red rose. energized by the sun. My petals slowly opening revealing my glowing growing core. core. in bright incandescent yellow.  bright yellow painted parking concrete stop. Our sun. dot. dot. dot. staring. staring. blinded by my bright core. dot. dot. dot.

707 Rose.  2017, Stella Santamaria
