Black bird
In the dark night

Like a fish in a stream
Like a frog in a pond

Like a poet
Drunk of life

Because seeds

Because seeds

Fruit under the sun
Treasuring vitamin C
And glucose

Carrying inside
Like a Trojan horse
A sun's seed

I’m a dark animal
With the same color of earth
And the same tone of gray

Everybody can see
From a very far away
Point of view

Why all of this hustle?
Pain and fear
All of this gloom?

To Elia with love

Holiday’s mornings

Holiday’s mornings

I’m a plastic flask
Melting on a roof
Covered with dried leafs

Then I realize
That I do contain
More love than hate

Afterwards I’m a black cat
Filtering daylight through
The narrow irises
Of a couple of yellow eyes

And also realize that
Happiness is an accumulation
Of holyday’s mornings

The majority of them
Missed and forgotten

I’m writing this
While waiting for the breakfast
Of another holiday morning

To Elia with love

I´ve been loving You
Since Ur
To New York
Through different bodies
But the same old soul

From Euphrates
To Hudson
I´ve been of You
Husband, fiancée and son
Grand, grand, grand and so

So please tell me my love
Is this impossible God of us
The one who optimizes
Or The one who wastes
Time and blood

Because the only thing
I do really know is
That I´m happy
Every time
I´m by your side

To Elia with gratitude and love

Pink illusions

Pink illusions

Three Chinese coins
Have told me
That persistence is good
At this transient second

And that my position
Isn’t strong enough

Under this illusory sun color
I´m afraid of to know
That pink clouds
Are just vapor

I´m throwing flower petals
To a cold & deaf stream

Who is more unreal?
my love or me?
Pink dream of a dream

Pulled by the balls

Pulled by the balls

It is so simple
You know

She simple knows
By her beloved heart
When I must stop drinking

It is a fact
That she knows
All of the people
I must talk to

So why discuss
Because she knows
Where and when
I can have a smoke

Below the whitish sunlight
Its eventual rays
And its horrible facts

Nobody knows me
Better than her

Haven that said
You know
I´m pulled by the balls

Into the blue sky
Of Almighty god´s

Where nobody will ever know
If next second will bring
Doom or salvation

Para Elia

A big zero

A big zero

Why this bustle
If I know that the sum of
The thousand beings

And all of its horror and pleasure
Joy and sorrow
Gives a big zero

To do what?
I don´t know

If everything is a mirror
And is
Its unavoidable reflex

Of love to give

Of love to give

From my dandelion clock
The changing wind have blown
A lot of winged achenes

Sometimes I miss them
Sometimes I’m glad they’ve flown

Sometimes I like to think
I still have a lot

To Elia with love

Under Orion’s belt

Under Orion’s belt

Under Orion’s belt
From algae to sequoias
Life covers everywhere
Like a she dog
Smelling like honey and gun powder
Every moon or so

Life´s like a knife
And when I´m at the edge
It shines

Every time
As stupid diamonds
Or as chicken fried

I´m happy when
You come back
Into my silly life

To Elia

Mother MO

Mother MO

This isn’t a conversation about threads or cores
Or on how many transistor and Bytes you need
To send God back to the Moses’ tricky arsenal.
It is all about etiquette and ties

Would you answer an urgent support call
At say... 3 a. m. If it is justified?
Of course sir, I say with a trained convincement.
I know how to treat the guys at first line

Zero downtime maintenance
And no single point of failure
Means nothing in real life.
If you are in bad terms with these guys

Mother MO is a redundant cluster of Mamas
Each one with 32 processors
Each one with 32 terabytes of RAM.
With Fibre channel connectivity inside

Bankruptcy notes, credit approvals, death sentences or love letters
It doesn’t matters if they come or go, or if they are yours or mine
All of them are crunched the same through the guts of Mother MO
By zillions of transistors at the always constant speed of light

When it is fog?
When it is cloud?
Asked me this morning a beloved child.
I can’t tell

But when this guy asked me about clouds
I was ready to say:!Quite of time in them!
That is a truth, but unrelated.
The same happened with the columnar compression theme

We the both know this is all about brands, teams, flavors,
The fancy things successful guys can throw in their flakes,
The camaraderie when occasional mistakes
And to find enough time to show boys mountains making clouds

Hope the One behind the victorious armies
Convince the subcontractor behind this man
This job is for one of my resume and skills  
I’m missing the superb smell of a brand new car

Sun 5

Sun 5

Because this city is not a beehive
And no human knows really a single byte
Of what matters the most
That is: Purpose and destination

And the complete universe leaves us behind
At the speed of the light
Every single instant
But it still remains

Because very few know really
Where the money comes from
But the majority still
Adores the golden calf

It is valid to say
That we live in the sun 5.
Looking at the past
And its unfinished animals

I’m sure someday
A pretty beautiful beast
Will decree the sun 6
But I’m afraid of that time

I hope they too find the way
To live as we do
Busy as an ant
Under a single star

Astonished and exultant as me
A single leaf
Pass floating in the stream

We the both are going to be
One with the sea
That one the whole world floats in

Shining pebble

Shining pebble
In a mountain stream

Exultant like a crab
As musical as a leaf

Bouncing back the light
Of a relentless star

And I left him laughing hard

And The Master asked:
Where you would like to be now?

And I said:

With whom?
Only with you

And what you would like to make with me?
Just to be by your side

Are you hungry, thirsty, angry, or expecting something?
No I’m fine

How’s weather?

So you are happy?
Yes I am

So it is time for you to leave me now
Good by

Theeee evolutionary history of my life

Theeee evolutionary history of my life

First came THE proteeeeeins
And then…

Viruses became reality
And then...

! It was... life!

So you came again
As always you do …

My beloved one

Saying again:
“Only when life´s good…”

In another gray day of my life

You THE love of mine
Became again…


One thousand years after
We first met in the front of…

Another river
Of my life

To Elia again

You’re my mess

You’re my mess

All of the toilet paper is wet
My bathroom isn’t an ash tray  
Elia says:
You’re my mess

Now I’m on the way
To find us a dessert
The finest pineapple of world
My beloved one, deserves that

Somewhere in the internet
Somebody plays
Leonard Cohen’s “I’m your man”
I’m that one

Clumsy and shy atheistic wiccan
In my Facebook you can learn
Poor because free
Pre Taoist indeed
