T U   R I S A .

QUITAME EL PAN, SI QUIERES, 
QUITAME EL AIRE, PERO
NO ME QUITES TU RISA.

NO ME QUITES LA ROSA,
LA LANZA QUE DESGRANAS,
EL AGUA QUE DE PRONTO
ESTALLA EN TU ALEGRIA,
LA REPENTINA OLA
DE PLATA QUE TE NACE.

MI LUCHA ES DURA Y VUELVO
CON LOS OJOS CANSADOS
A VECES DE HABER VISTO
LA TIERRA QUE NO CAMBIA,
PERO AL ENTRAR TU RISA
SUBE AL CIELO BUSCANDOME
Y ABRE PARA MI TODAS
LAS PUERTAS DE LA VIDA.

AMOR MIO, EN LA HORA
MAS OSCURA DESGRANA
TU RISA, Y SI DE PRONTO
VES QUE MI SANGRE MANCHA
LAS PIEDRAS DE LA CALLE, 

RIE, PORQUE TU RISA
SERA PARA MIS MANOS
COMO UNA ESPADA FRESCA.

JUNTO AL MAR EN OTONO,
TU RISA DEBE ALZAR
SU CASCADA DE ESPUMA, 
Y EN PRIMAVERA, AMOR,
QUIERO TU RISA COMO
LA FLOR QUE YO ESPERABA,
LA FLOR AZUL, LA ROSA
DE MI PATRIA SONORA.

RIETE DE LA NOCHE,
DEL DIA, DE LA LUNA,
RIETE DE LAS CALLES
TORCIDAS DE LA ISLA,
RIETE DE ESTE TORPE
MUCHACHO QUE E QUERE,
PERO CUANDO YO ABRO
LOS OJOS Y LOS CIERRO,
CUANDO 
Y OU R   L A U G H T E R .

TAKE BREAD AWAY FROM ME, IF YOU WISH,
TAKE AIR AWAY, BUT
DO NOT TAKE AWAY FROM ME YOUR LAUGHTER.

DO NOT TAKE AWAY THE ROSE,
THE LANCEFLOWER THAT YOU PLUCK,
THE WATER THAT SUDDENLY BURSTS FORTH IN YOUR JOY,
THE SUDDEN WAVE
OF SILVER BORN IN YOU.

MY STRUGGLE IS HARSH & I COME BACK
WITH EYES TIRE
AT TIMES FROM HAVING SEEN
THE UNCHANGING EARTH,
BUT WHEN YOUR LAUGHTER ENTERS
IT RISES TO THE SKY SEEKING ME
AND IT OPENS FOR ME ALL
THE DOORS OF LIFE.

MY LOVE, IN THE DARKEST
HOUR YOUR LAUGHTER
OPENS, & IF SUDDENLY
YOU SEE MY BLOOD STAINING
THE STONES OF THE STREET,
  LAUGH, BECAUSE YOUR LAUGHTER
WILL BE FOR MY HANDS
LIKE A FRESH SWORD.

NEXT TO THE SEA OF THE AUTUMN,
YOUR LAUGHTER MUST RAISE
ITS FOAMY CASCADE,
AND IN THE SPRING,LOVE
I WANT YOUR LAUGHTER LIKE
THE FLOWER I WAS WAITING FOR,
THE BLUE FLOWER, THE ROSE
OF MY ECHOING COUNTRY.

LAUGH AT THE NIGHT, 
AT THE DAY, AT THE MOON,
LAUGH AT THE TWISTED
STREETS OF THE ISLAND, 
LAUGH AT THI CLUMSY
BOY WHO LOVES YOU
BUT WHEN I OPEN
MY EYES & CLOSE THEM,
WHEN MY STEPS GO, 
WHEN MY STEPS RETURN,
DENY ME BREAD,AIR
LIGHT,SPRING,
BUT NEVER YOUR LAUGHTER
FOR I WOULD DIE.

the way you draw can be revealing: even the random scribbles you make while talking on the phone can be a form of valuable self-expression. don't discard these doodles; take a moment to consider why you made the marks you did . heavy, jagged lines may indicate an element of frustration; beautiful, flowing forms may suggest harmony & contentment; and so on. being your own art therapist in this way develops your powers of self awareness and encourages you to value your innate creativity.

AND YOU HAVE A LITTLE DAYDREAM SESSION ABOUT WHAT LIFE WOULD BE LIKE IF, FOR SOME REASON, YOU WOULD HAVE INDEED HAD THIS SAME BRILLIANT IDEA BEFORE THE BRILLIANT SOUL WHO HAD THE IDEA, HAD IT .

I KNOW, CUPCAKES ARE A BIT TRENDY @ THIS POINT, BUT REALLY? ! WHY SHOULD A PIECE OF CAKEY GOODNESS NOT BE AN ETERNAL TREND ? ! OBVIOUSLY, THEY'RE MINI CAKES THAT YOU CAN SERIOUSLY SHOVE IN YOUR MOUTH IN ONE BITE OR YOU CAN CHOOSE TO EAT ALL THE FROSTING FIRST, THEN THE CAKE - OR MAYBE YOU'RE EVEN ONE OF THOSE PERFECTLY COMPLIMENTING COUPLES WITH 1 CAKE LOVER, 1 FROSTING LOVER & YOU CAN HAVE A ROMANTIC LITTLE SNACK TO SHARE . 
EVEN MY HUSBAND , WHO CLAIMS TO NOT LIKE CAKES { A TRAGEDY FOR ME ON HIS BIRTHDAY! } SAYS HE LIKES CUPCAKES ?! 
FI GU RE . T HAT . ON E . O U T . 
BUT THIS SWEET LITTLE COUPLE WHO STARTED UP . EN  JO Y. C UP CA K ES . SERIOUSLY & LITERALLY ADDED MORE ICING THAN COULD EVER BE IMAGINED ON THE CAKE WHEN THEY REVAMPED A VINTAGE TRAILER TO MAKE A CUPCAKE SHOPPE . ON . W H E E L S ! 
AS I SAY THIS, I AM  L I T E  R A L L Y   S Q U E A  L I N G ! 
SO , THEY HAVE A TRAILER- EYE CANDY- THAT THEY GET TO TRANSPORT DELICIOUS GOODIES IN- TELL ME MORE- & BEYOND A DAILY 11-6 SCHEDULE, THEY ALSO RENT OUT THEIR TRAILER FOR WEDDINGS & SUPER FUN EVENTS! A H .
