STARLESS NIGHT

May be you’ll wonder why the sky is starless tonight…

1

the stars seem to be hiding 

from my lonely sight tonight

somebody must have hid them

from me to twinkle bright

2

or somebody covered my eyes

with clouds so thick so wide

or is it the forthcoming storm

with thunder rolling to form

3

or somebody gathered them, put them in a box

intentionally stored them,  put them in stacks

or the Lord did not hang them tonight

so people can see how’s our world without Light

4

but the Lord is unforgetful

for the things He had given

He has a purpose for all His actions

to show to people directions

5

He has the power to take them back

He’ll gather to safety all His flock

and to give what to whom

just like the stars He had broomed

Writings on the tree barks

“If you want to experience a forest, mingle among its trees,” writes Michael Wojtech.


Trees have their protective outer covering in their trunks and branches that are colored gray and brown. There are variations in their colors and textures, if you examine it closely.

In the picture, you can see that their skin are carved by sharp objects by tourists who visited Nogas island in the province of Antique, Western Visayas, Philippines. Aren’t the tourists hurting the trees in such a way that they are piercing the tree barks. Leaving their names on trees won’t make them famous.

i took a unsuspecting glance at her

as i stood facing the wall

deep-seated dimple adorned her face

now sunken as a smile gave the embrace



she looked like Francesca

woman of conviction, woman of courage

a look-alike of a woman i’ve known

a lovely loving mother on the canvas

well-kept in the calmness of the mind
rightful pursuits of plots someone has to do
disliked and shunned the bad left them all behind
affairs and episodes you hated as taboo

morally good and humble our lives should be
strange future still unknown of what’s in store
happiness in this world are ours for free
life’s spices not seen as classic folklore

Sometimes, Empathy

sometimes the thought of nothing creeps secretly
when nobody feels the presence
when nobody takes you
as who you are

many times your shadow entertains
can’t ignore your own being
standing and surviving, you pretend
in defiance of negativities

the mind refuses sculptures of clay
fighting an uphill battle processing a nay
building social connection you’ll not lose
empathy is… walking in each other’s shoes
