Spring

“Sometimes healing comes after helping someone that is going through the same trauma you went through. Help yourself by helping others.” – Ace Antonio Hall

Spring comes …

Walking through deep pain..

dripping tears with the rain.

Guest Poet: Ariosto, Ludovico

A una estancia donde esperaba a su amada
(Traducción de Clemente Althaus)

¡Venturosa prisión, cárcel suave,
No por amor, no por venganza fiera,
Me tiene la más linda carcelera
A quien es bien que agradecido alabe!

Otros cautivos, al sonar la llave,
Temen llegada su hora postrimera;
Mas yo me alegro, que el placer me espera,
No juez severo, ni sentencia grave.

Me aguarda el más cortés recibimiento,
Libre plática exenta de embarazos,
Dulces halagos y caricias siento:

De cadenas en vez, floridos lazos,
Y besos sabrosísimos sin cuento,
Y largos, estrechísimos abrazos.

Mi Amor

Amor mio, como te extraño…

Hoy te sentía juntito a mi…

Pero no estabas a mi lado.

Quiero entregarme solo a ti.

Como desearía besarte,

….Y no puedo porque ya no estás.

Se qué conmigo quieres casarte.

Oh mi amor… siempre me cuidarás.

Estoy preparando…en mis sueños,

Poner mi mano en tu gran mano …

Se que pronto..nos encontraremos.

Volveré a encontrar al que yo amo.

Viajarémos lejos .. muy lejos,

Para vernos y… si… abrasarnos.

Eöwyn and Faramir

Éöwyn… white lady of Rohan,

Once wounded inside and out, you are free!

Witch kings and evil Názgul…

You have conquered.

Now.. one man has conquered your heart…

And who is this…a man of Gondor?

Not one of your own people?

Deserving of you, he is…

Faramir.

A noble, brave warrior,

Ready to fight for the cause of justice…

Always wise and loyal, though one who has passed through night.

Many fell to his left and his right…

In his heart he held on to the truth and the light.

Roses fade away, but the love of these ones are here to stay.

Coming Back

Always searching, I’m coming back to you for real this time…

Could you believe that your heart would be truly mine?

I am so ashamed for my past,

But you say that I am not last.

Your heart warms me with true fire….

You are my one true desire.

How can I repay you for all that you have done for me?

More than ever, I see you now so clearly.

Production Sonnet

The lights go down and the crowd becomes hushed.

“Stand by curtain” says the Stage Manager.

Crew members stand ready to quickly rush.

The atmosphere is focused and measured.

Soon cast members will exit and enter .

A scene is set and lights glow brightly now.

The company acts and creates wonder.

Set pieces and props fly in and out…how?

Quick, fast, cues create unbroken magic.

Little children stare and dream in deep awe…

Imbibing themes…beautiful and tragic.

The pain of production… hidden from all.

Finally bows and standing ovation,

Bring tears, smiles and great elation.
