The first poems of a little dreamer girl

As old as humanity, were the first dreams they had and their strong desire to share them

“Let us abbreviate and get down to the heart of the matter. It was Miss Teresita who awakened the love of reading, in all the girls in my classroom. Of that perhaps, a small group of little girls, there’s not, but one that later in her life… didn’t turn out to be an ardent reader. Still today, we all read anything and everything that we encounter, even the occasional writing on the walls. She would organize these discussion sessions, where we commented on our reading. I´m sure you’ll think I exaggerate, but let me tell you that these gatherings were quite fun and decidedly entertaining.”

“Teresita taught me to love Poetry. She marked such an enormous difference with respect to the series of piano teachers of my life, for she was whom conducted me one step further ahead. It was thanks to her that I began to write. How to explain… the charm in beginning to explore that vast and wonderful world of my inner-self?”

“Can you imagine, Felipe? I was barely eight years old and already writing my own verses. Both of us were ecstatic and overwhelmed. Teresita believed that I showed a lot of potential, and she did everything humanly possible to stimulate my creative sensitivity. As for myself, I was overjoyed! It was the equivalent of tasting this incredible sweet dessert, and finding that you wanted to repeat it again and again… always encountering these new hidden flavours full of exquisite possibilities.”
