    Paradise Indeed!

    A slim book of poetry (148 pages) but one that fills the mind and soul with pleasure, "Escape to Paradise" is a real joy to dip into every day. My choice for today -- a rainy day when I am trapped inside the house and would rather be touring the countryside -- is "Walking with El Senor". "It's fun to walk with El Senor / along a bank of dreams." But I don't limit myself to one poem. I find myself strolling through the "Shopping Mall" where "Teenagers are everywhere", or joining Grandma with her "eleven rows of dancing cups" (they don't make such novelties any more), or escaping to "A Deserted Whistle Stop in Durango State" where "Even the one remaining adobe house that still boasts more than half a roof, lies unfruitful: Her walls, calcified bones; her rooms, arid echoes; her tank taps dripping dust; her venetian blinds askew, no longer slatted against the glare. In the dusty yard, her shade trees no longer shade, but lie stripped, bough-tangled, bare."
