Cuba 2012 – Love Songs Written on My Heart: An Island Unlike Others

on January 30, 2015

A mere hour’s flight spans miles between my land and a world apart.
Hour that does not compute distance in human hearts,
Both mine and a people I’d never met before.
Cuba, island home where bells of freedom do not peal.

My mind does not comprehend my tears that even now add to shining sea
That parts neighbors who are unacknowledged friends.
My heart knows it loves without an understanding.
My soul is happy to remember.

  1. Beautiful words. I love the ending saying, “My soul is happy to remember.” I can tell Cuba has a special place in your heart. ❤

  2. I like both the poetry and prose, but I think I like the prose piece better. It lets me see more.

      Thanks for you comment. Did you read the prose post I wrote” Introducing Jose and Finding Nemo” ? That is the one I trashed after the silence. I’ll try prose again.

  3. Oh wow! This is amazing. This line in particular: Hour that does not compute distance in human hearts. It made me think about how close I feel in heart with some people online. ❤
