Maya Poems From Isla Mujres


conch shells


secret maya sounds

from cliffs

beside temple ruins

sharing moon goddess

Ixchel’s power

in the Yucatán earth

beyond our mysterious origin

so deep within vast sapphire sky

all the way to the Mexican moon

and back

one day we’ll return to this southern finger

of Isla Mujeres


wise spirits of the dead

who fuel the living

to depend on our planet

to continue
