Patchwork Quilt

Beneath the patchwork quilt

Of the tin roofs

Arte es universal

Arte es natural

Muted rainbows

emptied pots filled

With the tears of motherless children

Men battle green for a place to call home

Blues blanket the boys and girls

Seeking shelter in a little classroom

There the air is brown

Splattered with hues of yellows and gold

A single ray of white dust

Dances from heaven

And moves to the sea

From this painful earth

On these broken faces

Arte is universal

Arte es natural

Callejones, passageways

Where dreams fall deaf on

Broken glass and cobblestone
