WE, women of the world
we are beautiful creations
we value our uniqueness,
weaknesses mold our characters,
we believe
our callous hands are blessings,
we can make
a universe of dreams,
we are builders, movers and shakers
through our rights, knowledge, talents and freedom,
we can be catalysts of change,
we can be thrones of difference
to empower other women even men,
we are graceful heirs of wisdom,
we are the world's mothers, daughters and sisters
we are seeds of light
to be good
to be better
to be the best inspiration
to be flames of transformation
the legend of our generations.


She has nothing to hide
She bathes from phoenix waters
Her face is a painting of emotions
Joy, fear, anger, sadness
Triumphs over lakes of unbelievables
Her body is a shrine
Of Lady of Morals
The Titans bow to her
As she waves the indigo skies
Of dreams, of reality
And the shadows of the giant future
Her eyes are gateways of Renaissance
Her mind is a Continuum
A designed power set of neutrality
The plateau of paragons conceiving passel of hopes
Her heart is a great barrier reef---
Axioms of force and compassionate forbearance
Her embrace reaches the byzantine
No myths, no scales, no bottlenecks.
She, the Gaia’s daughter
The lover of Love
The love of Love.


i can be
a single word
from your
multitude of metaphors.

i can be
a gentle touch
which means
i am
a world
for you.


Gaia's gifts of beauty
cerise-colored cape gooseberry
in a mother's garden of life
just like her limitless love.


the tiny lamp,
when south meets north,
the real triumph
lighting the  humanity's torch

wordsmith with bended knees,
on his bare feet--
he sees no one
but his perfect imperfections
the beauty of a true self
