Google Doodle for Today …. “💫✨ Dr. Maya Angelou Honored On Her 90th Birthday ✨💫 …. “!!


~~April 4, 2018~~ 



Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys and others celebrate the prolific writer with a reading of her famed poem “Still I Rise.”

‘Google Doodle for Today’ appeared regularly on this blog.

“Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans.”

John Lennon

That’s what happened to these postings.

However, I couldn’t let this one pass.

Maya Angelou’s birthday!



Prolific poet and writer Maya Angelou would’ve turned 90 on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
To honor and celebrate the phenomenal woman who penned the powerful “Still I Rise,” Google has dedicated the day’s doodle on its search homepage to Angelou, who died in 2014 at age 86.

The doodle is accompanied by an animated reading of “Still I Rise,” featuring the voices of celebrities she influenced, including Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, America Ferrera and Laverne Cox. Her only son, Guy Johnson, also lends his voice.

“Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she did it all,” Winfrey told Google.

“She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love.”

Wednesday also marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., a friend of the author’s.

For more than 30 years, in lieu of celebrating her birthday, Angelou sent flowers to Coretta Scott King on April 4.

Composite Photo …. “🇵🇷 Honoring my country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!


~~February 14, 2018~


Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

Yesterday, I visited my tattoo artist.

I had an idea in my mind but Stacy showed me her idea and this is what she came up with.

I instantly fell in love with this image.

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight. This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since the hurricane. 

There are still some details and colors to be added to the artwork.

I wanted to share this with you today.

 More will follow when completed.



Tencha, you rock!

That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.

💟 💟 💟

Comes to mind the last part of “En La Brecha“, de José de Diego.

Jeannette P.

My Facebook friend saw the image and commented as noted above.

I asked her about “En La Brecha” and here it is.


~En La Brecha~

José de Diego
¡Ah desgraciado si el dolor te abate,
si el cansancio tus miembros entumece!
Haz como el árbol seco: reverdece
y como el germen enterrado: late.

Resurge, alienta, grita, anda, combate,
vibra, ondula, retruena, resplandece …
Haz como el río con la lluvia: ¡Crece!
Y como el mar contra la roca: ¡Bate!

De la tormenta al iracundo empuje,
no has de balar, como el cordero triste,
sino rugir, como la fiera ruge.

¡Levántate!, ¡Revuélvete!, ¡Resiste!
Haz como el toro acorralado: ¡Muge!
O como el toro que no muge: ¡Embiste!

‘Sad a Sight of Ragged Flag, Disorder All Around’ …. “🇵🇷 John Bob Poem 🇵🇷 …. So Poignant …. “!!


~~December 1, 2017~~ 


I have a very dear friend, across the pond, who has been following the Puerto Rico situation with me. He has been a support for me during this trying time.

Here’s another poem that he has written for my country.

John Bob will always have a special place in my heart for as long as I live.




~John Bob Poem~

Sad a sight of ragged flag,
And disorder all around.
Help us now
To restore from plight our shatter island home
For storm that came and left a dread and lost beyond
Cry with us and remember, well that befell us then
For to you, the fate could come again
and help be not at hand
So those that have a small donate to help your fellow man

We are but proud and asking not our way
As author is this piece of rhyme I ask on their behalf
a cent a dime a dollar enough for coffee drink.
Enough to restore a gem in blue yonder sea
to see PUERTO RICO shine as was once before.
A new flag atop of mast but just below,
the tatters of
A flag to remind of hardship past and renewal now at last .

With Dedication to all those that lost, RIP

John Bob

Poem by a Friend …. “🐘 Elephants …. Magnificent, Majestic Noble Beasts 🐘 …. “!!


~~November 22, 2017~~ 



When the Earth was barren and bare,

And man looked out on folly,

we killed for sport and not to eat.

We chose to start our end

By killing magnificent friend

Such noble beasts we destroyed them all

At our hand we sealed our end

or nature’s balance we tilt the scales

And doom we face for nature failed.

No food or drink when balance upset

For us a tomb and man kind loss

At last no more an upright man.

For in our place was heard a roar

From small jungle and oasis desert

Beast return to claim it all,

And free to roam their earthly land

Unhampered by the human man.

Anon Pax

How Many More Must Die? …. “Spoken Word …. by Lula Saleh …. “!! 

~~June 19, 2017~~ 



After the police officer who shot Philando Castille is set free, after the shooting in a baseball practice, after 3 serial Islamophobic attacks in the United Kingdom within the last month, the killing of Nabra Hassanen, Muslim teen, killed after leaving Virginia mosque, we ask ourselves, like Lula Saleh, has done,

how many more must die?

African American, Muslims, refugees, LGBTQ community, minorities … different people, because of their differences!?

The video speaks for itself.

Epic Poem Written By A 14-Year-Old Boy … THE RACE …. “Drumpf gets burned by teenager …. “!!

Clinton, Trump pick up big wins

~~April 3, 2017~~ 


The fact that his poem was written by a teenager gives me hope for the future.

His parents must be very proud of him.

I would be.

Take a look!




Drumpf is a national embarrassment who never should have been allowed to run for the presidency to begin with. His antics during the campaign and after have divided the country and turned us into an laughingstock around the world.

The Race” begins with the campaign, takes us to the depressing election, and concludes with the aftermath and what should be done to rid our country of Drumpf.

14-year-old Owen Pallenberg wrote a poem all about Drumpf’s campaign and his various antics at the time and in the present day.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”


~Here’s the full poem via Huffington Post~


A man and a woman were running a race.

The man dressed in red with a very orange face,

And the woman dressed in blue with a pantsuit and a briefcase.

The race was much longer than a dash, mile or marathon,

And to many Americans it felt like it went on and on.

This was a race of old and new ideas and one thought,

And so the race started with the sound of a gunshot.

The woman dressed in blue was off to a great start,

She was gaining support and was eager to do her part.

However the man in the red was racist and sexist I’m sure you would agree,

He even said he wanted to grab a woman by her …

As the competitors turned the corner you got a glimpse of the fans,

And you could hear in the distance a chant about a man with small hands.

He claimed his hands and feet were quite big,

All while having a bright orange spray tan and a big yellow wig.

About halfway through the race the man was falling behind,

And the supporters of the woman were happy to have saved mankind.

As the competitors were nearing the finish line,

The people in blue were already celebrating and drinking their wine.

The woman approached the finish with a big, wide grin,

But then something happened that seemed to be the work of Vladimir Putin.


The woman fell down and lost her lead,

The win began to feel a lot less guaranteed.

The man hurdled over her body and crossed the finish,

And we all knew our Nation’s reputation would certainly diminish.

The man had somehow done it, he actually won,

The supporters in blue sat in shock and ceased all of their fun.

The man was apparently going to Make America Great Again with his campaign,

And the woman was depressed and had to put away her celebratory champagne .

The results of this race tore apart our land,

As millions of Muslims were immediately banned.

This man can do absolutely no good,

Except run his mouth and claim he was just misunderstood.

The man has stated “we need global warming” for all to hear,

Which has made me quite certain that the end is near.

He has called women ugly and fat,

Which has left me wondering how he could have won the race and done all that.

After insulting and making fun of men and women nationwide,

I’ve become mortified, horrified, and have lost my American pride.

Everytime he talks or makes a speech,

All I can say is impeach, impeach, impeach.

Now we just have to wait until Drumpf becomes the first president to attack a 14-year-old kid.

That would be a new low.

Lady Liberty, New York Harbor …. ‘A Poem by Brad Geyer …. Global Citizen …. “!!


~~March 8, 2017~~ 


Watch slam poet send an emotional message as he tears into Trump’s executive order on Muslims and immigration.

Immigrants of many countries are having a very rough time now.

In a country very well know for arising from a melting pot of immigrants, it’s not the norm to see this hatred, discrimination, racism and every thing else that has become the standards of the current administration.

Take a look.

This poem says it all!!
