Lily Peruana

Lily Peruana

Flower war

my name for

those who can’t

speak Español

 

Peruana roots

developed in

American ground

Spanglish is my sound

 

Bonita flor growing

under Inti sol

one taste of mi amor

Leaves to crave more

 

Delicate y calmada

Until mistreated then

You can drown

In Mar Brava

 

Only truths to be told

Lily’s fragrance can’t be

ignored.  I’ve battled

to become quien Soy.

 

 

Una poeta flor

Living unafraid

Writing realities

to cause waves.

Pretty flower growing

under Inti sun

one taste of my love

Leaves to crave more

to become who I am.

 

 

A flower poet

Living unafraid
