Esteban's poetry is inspired by his music. For each composition found in his albums, there is a poem by the same name about the visualization and/or inspiration behind the composition. At his concerts, his select poetry readings are delivered with heart and passion prior to playing the piece. His unique artistry gives audiences a richness of context that extends the melodies of his music into a world of verbal inspiration and imagery.
Excerpt from Butterfly Garden
You flutter about
with your wings outstretch
taking your time to smell
the flowers that grow in my garden.
My blooming coyote mint,
my crimson columbine,
my autumn sage and milkweed.
Like a toddler learning to walk
you teeter and totter into a world
of colors and scents and nectar and sun
with a toothless smile,
giggling at the sight of flowers
that await your hugs and kisses.

Excerpt from Evening Breeze
If I were to visit heaven
I would listen to the whispers of the ocean
between each crashing wave
I would watch asters on sand mounds
dance with the fading touch of the wind
I would let the salt water soothe my feet
and let the sand hug my toes
I would embrace the evening breeze
like a good friend visiting from far away
