Elena speaks several languages and her efforts are focused now in a novel that she will publish soon.
It is based on the similarities and differences that some immigrants find between two idiosyncrasies.
The National Library of Poetry has presented her several awards and published her poems in the following books:
"Dance on the Horizon"; "Echoes of Yesterday";
"Best Poems of 1995" and The Best of the 90's.
Her next poem will also be published in the book "The Best of 1997".
She is a member of The International Society of Poetry who presented her with a beautiful walnut plaque to commemorate her election.
Elena's personal philosophy: "The first step to success is to learn how to recognize our own failures adopting a positive attitude at the same time...
Bitterness or depression will only blur our vision and benumb our mind!
PEACE BE TO THE WORLD
IT'S IN MY DREAMS
FOR WE JUST WANDER BY
IN WAR...IT SEEMS!
PEACE IN COUNTLESS WAYS
DURING TOUGH TIMES
OR IN THE SMILE THAT STOPS
WHEN ALL ... YES! ...RHYMES
PEACE BE TO THE YOUTH
THEY CAME IN CLOUDS OF JOY...
WHERE WENT OUR LOVE?
TALK TO ME ABOUT LOVE, MY SON
TALK TO ME ABOUT IT....!
TELL ME ABOUT A WORLD THAT SHINES,
....TELL ME ABOUT THE UNKNOWN.
TALK TO ME OF YOU LIFE, MY GIRL,
TALK TO ME ABOUT IT....!
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR SEARCHING PACE,
....TELL ME OF YOUR LOST PEARL.
TALK TO ME OH WORLD, TODAY
AND TELL ME WHY YOU HURT!
HURRY NOW, AND TALK TO ME....
AND THEN....JUST GO AWAY!

EN PLATEADAS SENSACIONES
LLEGAS EN DULCE MIRAR
Y ESA ALEGRIA DE AMAR!
MAS, MI CIELO SE DESCUBRE
EN EXPLOSION DE TORMENTAS,
DENSA LLUVIA MI ALMA CUBRE
ES MI CAMINAR A TIENTAS!
Y TUS OJOS...TU SONRISA
EN RESPLANDOR DE EMOCIONES
VUELAN ENVUELTOS EN BRISA
QUE ESTREMECE CORAZONES!
ENTRE EL MIEDO Y LA IMPOTENCIA,
ANTE ESTRUENDO QUE ENSORDECE,
PIENSO EN TI...QUE BELLA CIENCIA
TE CIRCUNDA...Y PREVALECE!
Y, EN PLATEADAS SENSACIONES
VUELVE TU DULCE MIRAR....
......LIBRE DE DESILUSIONES,
EN UN ETERNO CANTAR!
BELLO ES PENSAR EN TI, BELLA ES LA VIDA
QUE BRINDA EN FANTASIA MIL MOMENTOS.
TU AHUYENTAS HOY EL GRIS DE MIS LAMENTOS,
VISTIENDO EL COLOR DE LOS ENSUENOS!
ASI, AL CERRAR LOS OJOS, TE ACARICIO
Y TIENES TU MI AMOR E ILUSIONES,
REY ERES DE LA VIDA Y MIS PASIONES,
DEL CANTO, DEL SONAR, DEL CLARO CIELO!
COMO VIVIR SIN TI? NO ME PREGUNTES,
NO LO QUIERAS SABER...YO LO ADIVINO,
CAMBIAR PUEDE EL AMOR, MAS NO EL SINO,
Y CAMBIA ASI EL SONAR...MAS NO EL ALMA!
If we walk through the path of life with a smile on our face...If we can turn around and notice that what we are leaving behind gives us calm and inner satisfaction... Then we should continue towards our horizon with a firmer pace, as the past will lighten up our future!
