Beyond the Threshold

Posted in Arts & Culture, The Avalosian Verses by Omar Ávalos Gallegos on August 6, 2010

As I look back I see that I am beyond a threshold. This journey has no return and but one outcome. A precedent has marked and defined the way. This precedent followed by another one has led me into deeper waters. On this nocturnal outing at sea I feel myself sink and fade into deep blue.

Never a Mystery

Posted in Arts & Culture, The Avalosian Verses by Omar Ávalos Gallegos on August 1, 2010

Clear and transparent are you, and never a mystery. Never exotic, never foreign. Arcane and beyond reach are you, but only the illumined one can attain and comprehend your depths.

You are never a mystery.

Deco District

Posted in Arts & Culture, The Avalosian Verses by Omar Ávalos Gallegos on February 17, 2009

Deco district,
Art noveau,
Fused motif.

Alameda stroll, stride, stance,
A glance at the dance of the city.

Time frozen still,
Ill will born of necessity.

Color contrast,
Stark…

Abrupt.

Clash of ideals,
Juxtaposed jazz,
Textures,
Chaos…

Grandiose, epic.

Stories on the walls,
Tales of chaos screaming past, present and future.
