Over the years, Emiliano has submitted a number of poems to this website, which you can find in the archives. Now he has published a book titled, "Aphorisms of My Humor". I have read his book and liked it very much. His wit and humor put a smile on my face.

is a bilingual collection of original sayings that reflect the mood of its author every time he felt compelled to be thoughtful and analytical about life.

No lion can fight against an army of flees.
The over crest river floods the surroundings.
The puddle with no depth cannot hold the rain.
Flexibility has its limits… go and ask a rubber band.

~TANKA~ (Summer)

Summer came and went
just like the other seasons
have done in the past
leaving behind memories
that crossed the “t’s” of our lives.
