First Breakfast in Ecuador #2

Note;  These are all Poems either revised or inspired from our Trip

to Ecuador in September 2015.  Much of 2016 has been spent battling

medical demons.  The details on that don’t matter much.   Bob

 

First Breakfast in Ecuador #2

 

Without even the memory

this was better than 1st Breakfast in

Hamburg, London, Montreal, Spain

Hamburg, London, Montreal, Spain

It had some American in it

It had some American in it

even though Americana coffee

was not the diner kind

was not the diner kind

It was still good and rich and strong

 

It was still good and rich and strong

and we heard all these voices there

locals, students, tourists and unknown others

locals, students, tourists and unknown others

A place where there was mingling, spanish mangled

 

A place where there was mingling, spanish mangled

me and Charito, and Paula and Phyllis and-

on our way to climb volcanoes, walk through waterfalls

on our way to climb volcanoes, walk through waterfalls

my plans included El Museo art is but one language
