365 Snap Shots of Life : Day 215

Salsa! The Taste of Life, my new book soon to be released is a volume of short storiesย  and poems. For the past few posts I’ve shared some of the material I had to edit because it would have made too big of a book to market. ย This poem I wrote is about one of the closest friends I’ve ever had. Every once in a while, God will send someone into our lives with such a sweet spirit, that when they are no longer a part of our life, we feel their absence much like a piece of dried bread misses its butter ๐Ÿ™‚ As you read this, let your friends know how much you appreciate them!

The Song of the Swallow

This morning I was down,

that is until I heard.

What did I hear?

The song, el canto de la golondrina.

ย 

What a breathtaking sound!

What sound?

Pues la cancion de la golondrina.

ย 

ย 

It lifted my spirit,

soothed my weary soul,

brought peace to my home.

What was that? I heard you ask-

ย 

ย 

Pues la dulce cancion de la golondrina.

My restless children heard it,

and peace returned to them at once.

They cheered as they heard the melodic sound.

ย 

ย 

Otra vez, caramba! What sound you ask?

Pues la bella melodia de la golondrina.

No se como explicarlo.

All I know is the song of that grace filled swallow

set to flight, ten thousand of hell’s demons,

and once again peace was restored to my heart.
