The Walk

No one can put you in a corner.

It will come the moment,
that you will stand up strongly
and walk out from that dark tunnel
and finally face the light.

You would be trembling
you would be afraid
this walk seems so long

you would be gasping
you would be tired
but you will be stronger step after step.

The immense love you have inside will hold your hand tight
your beautiful soul will lead your way to the light
your courage will bring you out

you will be proud
You will be free

the Savior would be there to hold you always.

Overwhelming Beauty

The sunset light was approaching
the soft curved hills.
Evening was entering like a fierce painting
in the sky.

How amazing colors
in a new dimension that only
nature and someone above
has the power to create.

I felt that overwhelming presence
a strange feeling surrounded me,
all over like holding me
in a tight and breathtaking embrace

excitement and power for
something that I see unbelievable unreal
but truly real.

I am glad I was there
grabbing the drops of this
overwhelming beauty.

stormy_sky Emotions


emotions chained
to words untold
floating like cluster clouds
in a sky of darkness and light

the storm was approaching
lighting were striking the heart
like stones breaking glasses

like in a lost dance over fire
following the song of my thoughts
holding a flower to protect

a desperate search for
a peaceful and silent shelter to rest

pieces of me were left there
in the dark with a white flower to hold
looking for a raising sun…

 Be like water


translucent surface
of an inner energy

powerful light
radiating rays of depth
in the history of nature

sun reflection and donation
of universal love
for the humanity to hold

a cosmic revelation
sometimes unknown
like puzzle pieces to find
within our soul

awareness will come
with perception and feelings
love is power
light will shine

Over the Hills

Over the Hills

Looking over the hills
I lose my sight in the beautiful horizon

the immensity of Mother’s nature
that I cannot hold

brings me back and lost
in memories of  beautiful places

so dear and
so far away
called home.

Artist precious hands,
intensity and love givers.

Hands guided by a heart pulse,
forging and hammering metals,
holding precious stones.

Inspiration from the soul,
happiness  and art givers,
emotions in a motion of senses.

stroking brushes fulfilled with passion,
dripping water on white paper,
splashes of colors take forms.

Ink tears into the unknown
a creation is born.

a precious word I have been thought
from the day I was born

a word made of many words
a word made of many colors
a word made of many thoughts

a word to be shared

a word that rhyme with love
and acceptance

find harmony inside yourself
to walk peacefully during your life path
with enlightenment

love yourself to love one another
open your mind to freedom
and maintain it possible in this world.

Open your wings

When you overcome something
that was hurting you and your soul deeply

you learn a new way to express life
you are in another dimension

and you have a choice

you can turn something that was bad
into something good.

Open your wings to others
be free
and let your heart fly without fears
you could be an angel to someone else.

Night And Day

When the sun rise
she emits powerful rays of sunshine,
joy and merriment
sending warm feelings of love through the light

and a breeze
move the petals of a sunflower sending sunshine to the world.

When is twilight
she brings glowing light from the sky when
her other half is below the horizon

her rays of sunshine
become refraction and scattering
she emits rays of love into a universal light

illuminating the Earth until dusk
she blows stars in the wind welcoming the night.

We will be free
like the wind that brings our image
reflected in the stillness

only for a moment

then suddenly all can change
and the water will stream life

we will be free
like a shadow reflected in
the stillness of light

only for a moment

the uncertain and unknown
will darken

then suddenly all can change
the light will be within us
we will be free.

Abstract Dream

Where am I?
Walking into the deep blue
of this abstract dream.
There is no gravity
all is light and indigo
all is profound.
Step after step
I am leaving traces of my being
where am I going?
I am following
the blue clusters of creativity
listening to the magic sound of my heart.
Step after step
I leave imprints of my passage
traces moving the air in
a dance called life.

Blow into my heart
the magic of your soul
the happiness of your tears
the life of your energy

Blow into my heart
the music of your creativity
the love of your light
the cold wind of your sad days

Blow into my heart
the changes and transformations
the distance that is not there

Blow into my heart
the senses of your emotions
the memories of your soul

Blow into my heart
the amazing song of your thoughts
the intensity of your feelings
the wanting of your dreams.

  1. Hi Carolina,
    I particularly like the Poem “Crystals”… short and sweet, as we say in England. It makes so much sense, because in the end (whatever that may be), love & light will prevail.
    Beautiful Poems indeed.
