Señora Napowrimo Day # 21

“Mis manos no somos vacios”
She says divinity waits for no-one,
while placing flor de calabasa
on a cracked, clay comal

Together we watch; smoking
spirals kiss an ash-laden day

My hands are not vacant

Process notes: this is about the woman round the corner from my home. She told me today, “Mis manos no somos vacios”, which literally means “I am always busy”.

  1. Empty hands are useless hands. I love to use mine, too.

  2. I love that saying, Pamela. It expresses my reality too. If not my hands, my mind. LOL.

  3. Love this, Pamela! Simple words, simple actions, great poem.

  4. Mary, it is a lovely saying. It just rolls of the tongue. Thanks all.

I appreciate all comments.
