Art poetry

Rainbow/Arco Iris

The colour Red is a bird with wings that shine.

Yellow, turns into a sunflower.

Grey, the colour of rainy afternoons

when bodies love.

Green, hope yet unreachable.

Blue, the clear melody that cleanses everything in its wake.

Pink, the tongue of a black cat.

And Black, the open arms of night,

although no-one, but the stars,

takes notice.

Arco Iris

El color rojo es un pájaro con alas que brillan.

El amarillo, se convierte en girasol.

El gris, color de las tardes lluviosas

Cuando los cuerpos se aman.

El verde, la esperanza aun inalcanzable. 

Azul, la clara  melodía que deja todo limpio a su paso.

Rosado, la lengua de una gata negra.

Y el negro, los abrazos abiertos de la noche

Aunque nadie, mas las estrellas,

Se da cuenta.

By Red Balloon

I am a chronically ill queer artist and writer. I have a number of degrees in higher education and have spent most of my life interested and active in social movements against racism, militarism, misogyny and homophobia. Over the course of my life, I have worked in the world of alternate news, translation, law, teaching, and with progressive cultures, music, poetry, performers, and artists. I speak and understand a few languages and plan to share media in them on this blog. I am a poetry, art, music, and nature lover with an especial fondness for cats!
