Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior? I know that in order for this book to have the impact on you that I pray it does, you need to know your Creator and Savior. You need to know the mercy of God and how incredible He is. This book is meant to help you walk a little closer to God. If you have not done so, I urge you to take a moment and pray. God doesn’t want anyone to be lost, including you and me. Just pray to Him that you know He died for your sins and that you need Him in your heart and life. Tell Him you are sorry, and let Him know you are submitting to His will. And by all means, tell Him you love Him.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Him. There is no other way to heaven. You will be so glad you submitted, and now join me and countless others as we learn more about God and as we walk toward heaven.

I hope it encourages you to pick up the Bible and read for yourself God’s amazing love story.

Have you ever asked, Why me Lord? I know personally that we will be tested as Christians. This compilation of Spiritual writings is a testimony to Faith. This compilation is also a testimony to God’s gift of families for it contains writings from three generations—mother, son, and granddaughter.
Although traditional, this compilation of inspirational writings and poems are relevant to this global based, social media twenty-first century. Interesting, most of my writings in this compilation occurred at the oddest times—while I was trying to sleep, while teaching, while relaxing or even while talking to others. Ultimately, this compilation of Spiritual writings reflect that life is a series of experiences. As our faith in Jesus is tested, we grow spiritually, emotionally, and sometimes creatively.
Poems from the Rocky Mountains is about situations people experience in their environment as they happen and at different times, using poetic language and imagery. This is not a run-of-the-mill-poetry book; neither will it make me famous. I was told that to be a famous poet, the poet has to be six feet under first, and at my age, I don’t want to be famous at all.
The book is the result of training and experience as an immigrant, adopting the language, the way of life, and the way of thinking in my adopted country for the last sixty-eight years, never forgetting that English is my daily means of communication. In order to believe the above statement, you have to read my book.
I bring the flow of my Indian/Hispanic heritage and sensitivity to the American poetic stream, which produces out of the two factors, the oneness that makes Poems from the Rocky Mountains a unique book. This is why most of the topics in it are as American as baseball and apple pie, but spiced with tropical flavor: goal achievement, the Rocky Mountain landscape, the Old West tradition, patriotism, geographical wonders, personal, family and social problems, abstract and humorous poetry, the tropical landscape, international, romantic, lyrical, child-appropriate, rhymed and metered styles and elegies.
Almost everyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one has also experienced seemingly endless quiet moments—moments when it seems you cannot see past today and moments when tomorrow, as you knew it, seems nonexistent. In these moments, all thoughts rush back into memory—memory so vivid it seems impossible to grasp that the person lost is truly gone from your life. Quiet Moments allows the reader to reflect on living and dying as two inevitable facts. It encourages the reader to believe and trust in God’s power to begin healing and restore wholeness.
The topics in this book address subjects that youth may deal with on a regular basis. It is presented in poetry form to ease some of the sensitivity, hurt, pain, frustration, and irritation of the subject matter. However, the issues are to be taken very seriously. Our youth matter and we want the circumstances to be addressed and dealt with, and broken hearts healed so they can move on with their life’s purpose.
Consider a single catalyst that causes an unimaginable reaction. It is one that provides love, comfort and care without borders or guidelines. Imagine, believe and accept the possibilities. It is Simply Because.
These poems encompass observations of life’s many facets—the incomprehensible, the beautiful, the curious, the humorous, the unjust, the delightful, the sad, the right, and the wrong.
God created us, no two alike. We are the evidence that He loves variety. So do I; that word best describes my writing.
Life is full of adventure, there’s one trial after the other. And should you say that it is boring, then why is that? Grab the bull, which are your situations in life, by the horns and ride it out in a godly manner. You might fall off one time or another, but it’s okay. Remember we are only passing through. Let your request be made known unto God, trust in him. You be in charge of your destination! Yes! We have our ups and downs in life, let us live it in Christ. We experience something new daily, a chance to make or change history. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. So tell me! What are you going to do?
