Tale of the: Old Hunter and the Golden Hare [In SPANISH and English now]
There once lived an old man and his goodwife
He once was hunting in the woods,
'No common hare,' thought he.
Now the Golden Hare started to examine him,
The old man was surprised and scared,
But the hare stood stone-still, shaking,
There he dried the hare, gave her food,
To his wife, the old hunter was cautious
Thereupon, his wife reprimanded her husband:
The old man turned to the woods,
The Golden Hare mumbled in reply:
And behold, when the old man arrived home,
And again he went back to the woods,
And when he arrived back home,
But the old woman was still hungry with greed
And the old hunter did as she asked,
When the husband arrived back home-

Cuento del: cazador anciano
Por Dennis L. Siluk
Allí una vez vivía un viejo hombre y su buena esposa
El una vez estaba cazando en el bosque,
Ahora la liebre de oro empezó a examinarlo,
El anciano estaba sorprendido y asustado.
Pero la liebre aun permaneció parada como piedra, sacudiéndose
y la llevó de regreso a su casa.
Allí el secó a la liebre, le dio comida,
Para su esposa, el anciano cazador fue cauteloso
Con eso, la esposa reprendió a su marido
El anciano regresó al bosque,
Y él fue llamando a la liebre de oro
Y la liebre de oro apareció detrás de un arbusto
La liebre dorada masculló
Y contemplo, cuando el anciano llegó a casa,
Su esposa estaba riéndose, Por una maquina de coser.
Pero ella Le grito a su esposo cada vez mas
Y otra vez el anciano volvió a los bosques,
¿Y ahora que anciano cual es tu deseo? .
Ahora quiere una granja".
La liebre de oro mascullaba la respuesta
"¡Como tu . Deseo, ve a casa y lo tendrás!"
Y cuando él regresó a su casa,
¡Pero la anciana todavía tenía el hambre con la avaricia
Y el viejo cazador hizo como ella preguntó pidió,
Gritando alto para que la Liebre De oro apareciera
Cuando el marido regresó a casa -
Cosiendo una vieja camisa, sobre su regazo, aburrido.

On through the darkness she searches the bones Seeking the hand of her love; Deep in the stillness, the maid searches on, Petitioning help from above.

Never Ever More
Once upon a midnight dreary, coffee cold and vision bleary, all night sat there writing COBOL, coding spread across the bed sheets, changing syntax for the mainframe, having checked my final line, I took the floppy from the drive.Typing with a steady hand, I then invoked the SAVE command, but there below my effectuation, appeared the cryptic communication, "Abort, Retry, Ignore" and nothing more.

Storm Rising along the Lima Coast [Summer of 2002]?wind was blowing furiously It never left for a moment Bursts of fury I found it difficult to keep My feet placed, thus, I clung to my knees For one blissful moment I could not now disguise it From myself Some subtle feeling Manifested itself Then the current drew Sharply away from me With her mystery-Back out into the open sea Yet-, still it roared back at me! It was an expressed release It made my head swim I noticed it kept-step With my exultation!?#761 7/14/2005Notes: There are mysteries to the sea, at times it seems as to have its own mind, its own character; as if nature was plugged into all that exist. Earth itself being an entity with its own lively soul.
