haiku: random thoughts on south america

Brazil

*************************

Cock-a-doodle doo!

Roosters declare to the world

sun’s up in Brazil.

**************************

Rich in penthouses;

poor under the bridges. All

nations are the same.

***************************

Hand-hewn cobblestones

old world traditions remain

today’s foundations.

************************** 

Bright smiles and happy

faces, inner glowing of

multi-ethnic groups.

**************************

Warm, jovial and

fun, Brazilian hearts are like

quick otters at play.

**************************

Unconditional

Love freely given, oh how

they give and give back!

**************************

Argentina

*************************

European land

of resettling, the Jews

flocked to your safe shores.

*************************

Nazis came to you

to hide, after world war two.

Lives incognito.

********************

Spirit of the dance

tango and romance. God sets

feet dancing anew.

*********************

Gold dust, miracles

the Holy Spirit falls on

all who trust… believe…

***********************

Argentine cowboys

rustle up cattle. The world

loves your beef, your wine.
