Guest Poet – Carm Montez

I want to introduce you to my friend and fellow educator, Carm Montez.  She is a delightful person and a darned good poet.  Carm has been sharing her poetry on Twitter and Facebook and I think it needs to be seen another format as well.

Below, I am including a selection of poetry that Carm picked for this blog.  I have attempted to coordinate pictures that represent what she has written.  So without any more of my chatter, here are Carm’s stunning poems.  By the way, she is bilingual and some poetry is in both English and Spanish.  There is at least one in Spanish only.  Enjoy!

… hole in his pocket

stars from her eyes
littering the sidewalk
under his feet

brilliant… in the morning sun

on her lips

he tasted what no other had before

and he wept ….

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wish I could speak Spanish —

Y despues
me caigo
satisfecha
… completamente rendida

tu dulzura chorreando de mi pecho

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In earth’s chapel
blessed by the sun
my lips
sweet with the nectar of desire
are passionately married to yours

Here, in this alley,
With the sun barely overhead,
We surrender to each other
Risky
Adventurous
Exciting

Aqui
En este callejón
Con Apolo en medio viaje
Nos desquitamos
Atrevido
Aventurado
Emocionante

… shadows on walls
filtered moonlight

…. her hips did all the talking

Colors of the mesa fading…

the Sandias watermelon red … drift my lover

Rest your soul
In the quiet of my heart
And your body
In the warmth of my embrace

Red boots and spurs
She whispered in his ear …
Saddle up, Cowboy
Time for a ride

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

his hand covering hers
…. soft …. inviting
together they traveled

… taking the southern route

cielo azulejo
columpio  ….
descalza
camiseta blanca … vieja
piernas
dedos …
encadenados …
verano esfumando

blue bird sky
porch swing ….
barefoot
old white t-shirt
fingers
legs
… intertwined
summer fading
