Tanka 18016

I was a filled cup,
Caffeinated love and hope,
On your arrival,
I was high for a moment,
And crashed when you departed
~ Eugenio Saenz Jr.


Let Us Live, A Poem

Let go motionless land,
Cities and streets,
Let me find a coast,
Welcoming sea,

Let me wave bye,
To mountain peaks,
Grasslands wave farewell,
Perilous material bonds,

Let me explore,
Wander out beyond tides,
Visiting coastal ports,
Giving in to undercurrents,

Come with me siren, let stars deploy our journey,
Let us live out days in joyous arms of you and me

Let Us Live, Eugenio Saenz Jr.

Haiku 16552

“Haiku 16552”
Note on my window,
Pick her up, Terminal E,
Her embrace was stowed

~ Eugenio Saenz Jr. 

Haiku 16460

Our lives lose meaning,
When we place hate at the front,
Arrive with your heart ~ Eugenio Saenz Jr.
