Platero

image

Platero es pequeño, peludo, suave; tan blando por fuera, que se diría todo de algodón, que no lleva huesos. Sólo los espejos de azabache de sus ojos son duros cual dos escarabajos de cristal negro.

Juan Ramón Jiménez

(Platero is  small,  soft, hairy: so soft to the touch that he might be said to be made of cotton, with no bones. Only the jet mirrors of his eyes are hard like two black crystal scarabs. )

Spring color visual poem…

“The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.

Spice it up…

“Each spice has a special day to it.

For turmeric it is Sunday,

when light drips fat and butter-colored into the bins to be soaked up glowing,

when you pray to the nine planets for love and luck.” 

Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, The Mistress of Spices
