When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

The monk said I shall remove all thoughts
                                          all moods
                                          all colours
   … a blank mind  

      Eyelids closed
      Vocal chords relaxed
      Arms not comfortable
I change position            Concentrate
   … blank mind    
              not everything is white
              should it be white?

      Follow my breathing
   … blank mind    
               is that tune a bolero?
      Noiseless breathing
   … blank mind !!!    
   … blank mind ! !    
   … blank mind !    

…               waves touch my body

               soft sand slipping through my fingers
              the sun is warm
              blue sky


      Eyelids closed
      Noiseless breathing
      Willingness to forget all thoughts
   … blank mind           ocean
      Comfortable position
   … blank mind    

     Maybe emptiness is black
   … black mind           children laughing
     Maybe emptiness is dark
   … dark mind           not dark enough
     Face on my pillow
   … dark mind           darker?
     Eyelids tightly closed
   … dark mind           darker
   … dark mind           
   … dark

    …           waves

              blue sky

              I run & smile

              blue sky

              I fly


   … magic mind        …       I dream        …

Fae was working


Fae is the name of a fictional female character. Fae is one important character in my e-book “Cuando la obscuridad se prende”. As you can imagine, the book is written in Spanish. This is a translation of one of the stories in that book.



Fae was working


Fae was working when she sensed him, he appeared out of the blue, without any notification. He was gorgeous, eye-catching as usual, but he came at the wrong time. He has always done the same thing, he arrives in the instant when she cannot get rid of everything and allow him to seduce her.

He almost convinced her. Morpheus has a hypnotic charm. He is tall and handsome, with an amazing personality… His only presence cannot be ignored. Fae had learned to escape from him; nevertheless she is extremely attracted to guys with beautiful eyes. The sighs landed first, between some flirting and shy smiles, flanked by evident pretensions and weak voices. She is strong. She turned the computer on and made an effort to concentrate in her work, but he was too close and she laid down her defenses unconsciously. I’m working –she told him with a disguised smile- I don’t have time for this. Morpheus didn’t answer, he wanted the girl and he’s not used to rejection. Her eyelids began to flirt with the striking man while Fae was losing the force to fight against desire. He smiled thinking “another success!” She was in the limbo between determination and perdition.

Morpheus was walking in the office when he stumbled upon a mirror; he couldn’t remember the last time he stopped to watch his own reflection. He was really attractive. He stayed there, completely calmed, relaxed, in ecstasy with the narcissus effect he was living; his eyes began to blink, to close themselves until his body was completely relaxed. Fae hugged him and took him to the sofa. She covered her love with a red blanket, allowing him to have some rest while she finished her work.
