Poetry by Ron Sanchez

Dream

If you stretch your hand out towards the stars in the night
Pretend to touch them
Within each star holds a dream
Within each dream holds your imagination
Within your imagination you are boundless, fearless and free
The power within you is limited; by the walls you build
Exercise your right to create a world enchanted by
Your grace, love and inspiration
Childhood fairy tales forgotten through the years
Once sparked your ability to believe in the impossible
As you begin to believe in yourself turn each day of your
Life like the pages in a fairytale
You are the author
Let your mind dance with hope and a smile on your face
God has provided you with a playground with all the rides
Enjoy yourself

Watercolours

Open Heart
Can you hear my voice?
Come out of the shadows and into the light
Let me see your colours so rich and deep
Paint life with grace and passion
But wait, be careful not to let the darkness spill
On my canvas
Be crisp and unpredictable but choose wisely
Your mixes and colours,
Magnify my life with colours of yellow, blues, reds,
Pinks, greens and so on and so on
But wait, be careful not to let the darkness spill
On my canvas
I will be a remembrance of the beauty and ugliness of
Yesterday gone by
I will be the hope of future eyes upon my souls canvas
Will the colours to dance, cry and rejoice
When the rain falls and the sun beckons from a distant cloud
I am the rainbow of the miracles
But wait, be careful not to let the darkness spill
On my canvas
People will join hands and sing songs of praise
As the light radiates from the life you have given me
I too will radiate life to the sick, hopeless and lost
I will be their photograph of love

An Open Heart
