I hear my mom waking me up
Pork shoulder sizzling
Smelling the cookies,
three leche cake
Tasting the sweet sweet
pots and pans
in the kitchen
the glittery red bows
The cozy warm
Me seeing my presents
seeing my big
and little sister
a box with a piece
As I settled in the grass
and watched the trees, the sky,
I noticed a calmness, with a soft breeze.
As if the world had just sat down
and taken a deep breath
to retreat from the rushing time.
Then suddenly, the branches I viewed
were not relaxing, but rustling,
and the clouds swirled about eagerly with passion.
The tranquil scene became restless before my eyes
without actually changing pace or tone,
and it brought me to realize a way of nature.
Our planet does not rest or calm,
