A Poem from Alicia Salabert

Although I have traveled far and wide, I am never far from the Monongahela Valley. I am a second-generation American; the Old Countries are never far from me. The wood, and hills, rivers and “cricks” have given me an appreciation for nature.

     I admire a poet/writer who writes in a language other than the language he or she originally learned. At times I write in German, but usually not.

    My good friend Alicia Salabert excels in her poetry. Whether she also writes in Spanish, I do not know. She has my admiration for her poetry and for so much more. With her permission, I psot this one: 

A powerful light breaks
You understand.
Without struggle.
Full of gratitude,
you breathe.
And you sing.
You sing.
(Reworked poem)

Thanks so much, Alice! And write some more!
