The Gorriones of Lima

It is fall all about me-

The Gorriones are swimming in the air Underneath the Lima sky

As if-, if fish could fly?

Summer has gone its way

It is fall again I say! The birds-, they just walk on by

Looking, as if, if on parade-


The world keeps spinning;

They just do not see it Until the hour comes?

When the sun goes down!?


Things get a diminutive dim;

Yet the Gorriones keep on swimming Gracefully, swimming, in the wind-

Under the Lima sky? .

Note: #634 (4-30-05) Printed in Lima, Peru

A Short, Saga of Chan Chan English Version

The Mochicas built the Great Temples

Of the Sun and Moon (For I have seen them)

Long already Tacaynamo Came from the Sea. . .

Who gave birth to the name Called, "The Moche," of Chan Chan!

Long ahead of the Inca conquest Of the Chimus!. . .

Long ahead of the downfall of This land, called Peru!. . .

Note: taken from notes taken at the archeological site last April 2004, and revised, April 2005, into poetic form. --#633.

Un Cuento Corto, de Chan Chan

Los Mochicas construyeron los Grandes Templos

Del Sol y Luna ( Ya que los he visto)

Mucho antes de la conquista inca ¡De los Chimus!. . .

Mucho antes de la conquista de ¡Esta tierra, llamada Peru!. . .
