En este portal se encuentran poemas de la poetisa Julie Sopetrán, sobre Día de Muertos en México. Ella escribe al respecto: “Mi primer encuentro con la muerte fue en Ihuatzio.

Vamos a plena luz del día y les ponemos flores a los seres querdos el día primero de Noviembre. Fue difícil pero no imposible”.
