El Salvador

by Gerson Romero
El Salvador the land of pupusas
El Salvador the land of water
El Salvador the land of tamales
El Salvador the sights of children laughing
El Salvador the sights of the white sand beaches
El Salvador the sights of children working hard
El Salvador the place where people are kind to each other
El Salvador the feeling of the hot sun in the pool
El Salvador the feeling of the warm water on my feet
 

Honduras

by Raymond Leonzo
Honduras,
The sound of wind… cars… a helicopter
The sound of thunder…
The sound of rain, shshshsh soft on the ground.
 
Honduras,
The feel of the sun shining down on the ground…
The feel of the sun in the middle of my fingers…
The feel of the waves on top of me…
 
Honduras,
The smell of the water… the smell of the pizza in my mouth…
The smell of barbecue…
 
Honduras,
The taste of cotton candy in the park…
The taste of chocolate chip ice cream in the movie theatre…
The taste of bacon in the backyard.
 
Honduras,
The sight of trees with blue flowers…
The sight of the birds landing on the ground…
The sight of airplanes zooming down like birds with lights on.
 
 

Vietnam Poem

by Thuy-Dung
Vietnam
the land of the hot rain
the land of the hot sun
the land of the green trees.
Vietnam the smell of the red flowers
The smell of the chicken stew
The smell of the soft and small plants.
Vietnam the taste of the blueberry
The taste of the apple
The taste of the bananas.
Vietnam the sound of the people walking
The sound of the pigs playing
The sound of the stinky fish
Vietnam the touch of the cat
The touch of the baby boy
The touch of my sister's nose
Vietnam the sight of me swimming
The sight of me and my dad swimming in the ocean
The sight of me eating blackberries.
