My poems written in Mexico in August are starting to arrive at their intended destinations and so I continue with the posting here. The last few lines from this poem are taken almost verbatim from a sign at Casa Azul, the home of Frida Kahlo, to which I made a pilgrimage in August 2014, just before heading to the 14th Subud World Congress in Puebla, Mexico.
