Azul (Blue)

Posted January 8, 2014 & filed under Notebook.

Azul, que bailas en el cielo
Azul, las cachapas de Venezuela
Azul, como “Mary”
Alas de un pájaro
Azul, el pelaje
Azul
Que te oigo
En el mar
Azul
Como si ves el bien
En un Dios
Azul
Te veo
Como amor

~
Blue, you are dancing in the sky.
Blue, the cachapas of Venezuela
Blue, like the “Mary”
Wings of a bird
Blue, the hair
Blue
That I hear you
In the sea
Blue
Like if you see the good
in God
Blue
I see you
Like Love

If

Posted April 27, 2012 & filed under Notebook.

If there is a cat on your head

scream

If there is a feather in your spaghetti

laugh

If there are ants in your pants

freak out

If there is love in your heart

pass it on.
