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. His first published collection of poetry is now available in hardback and ebook. See details below.
Excerpt from Butterfly Garden
You flutter about
with your wings outstretched
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
Esteban's First Collection of Poetry
In a true first for an artist's creative expression, Esteban Ramirez' first collection of poetry is inspired by his original neoclassical, romantic piano solo album, "Serenade to the Moon" and coupled with original impressionist-themed, artificial intelligence-generated illustrations that are sure to catch your breath in this 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" size coffee-table book.
This 82-page collection with 30 full-color illustrations is encapsulated in "Serenade to the Moon - the poetry book" - giving his melodies a life beyond the piano, delving into a realm of verbal imagery that is as lyrically reflective and unpretentious as his melodies.
An album whose beauty is rooted in melodic simplicity and inspired by nature, love, and everyday life, Esteban transfers his musical aesthetic to his poetry, painting pictures with words that take you deeper into his emotional experience and our shared humanity. From love and heartbreak to childhood dreams and nature walks, each poem will inspire your senses.
And thanks to today's modern technology, made possible by OpenAI's DALL.E 2 and Esteban's own photoshopping skills, readers will find these illustrations a fitting tribute to art of the Impressionist period. Art lovers will ponder the emotional impact presented by these original illustrations, whether it be from the art itself or in the context of the multi-dimensional experience this book can offer when coupled with Esteban's music.
