Existence of this ageless tomb
another sense given to invoke.
Resurrected from a socialist womb
with a success left to provoke.

Two firey breasted beasts will greet,
few miles across a frontier.
Cloud capped and complete
a glowing moment of fear.

This was a 'land of the not quite right' 
and its claws had a strenghtening grip.
The genius of Dario's write
offers us only a shorten clip.

Isolated by forces within
or controlled by powers from out.
The feel in your heart is akin
to a home, that, I have no doubt.
A step back to where we know
yet two steps forward to what we don't.
Where yawning smiles are a flow
and abundant treasures mount.

Future turmoil continues rife
harden hands tells its story.
It's people adapt to their strife,
returning it to a former glory.

Fire remains in the blood:
the music, the dance akin-
nor presume or nor you should,
the passion that lies within.

(Nicaragua, A Beautiful country)(

    I enjoyed this, Gerald! People, everywhere, especially from so-called "3rd" world countries are resilient! I believe that man has an indomitable spirit and can adapt to any situation. Love this. Blessings, peace and joy, always, Audrey
