as the currents keep the waters roll
the sands of time as sieve drains the surface in volumes
fragments in hues slide back to the sea
leaving a sound that reverberates dreams back to slumber
millions of times in hypnotic tone

winds of unstable speed
and uncertain directions
disturb the sphere of life
the expanse in full color

the night time comes in slow
hiding in its black robe
not minding the cryptic sounds and visions

stars in twinkling powers
can’t do so much to rival the moon’s
even in numbers

the sun may wake to make a day
smiles and hopes can now be theirs
to people around the world

You

what now
it was over
the chance has faded


if only
your declaration was for real
love could have been intense


but it was not a wasted time
love was expressed in its prime
you didn’t know, chances grew
with watchful eyes
whenever, wherever,
there was you…

Images of you…

Sometimes i forget
the lessons of life…
my mistakes, trivial as they were
have hinted me so

Their runs somehow
were purely accidental
and i was sorry
for it has transgressed boundaries

Images of you
heading a reappearance,
like questions that were asked
divinely answered then

Sweet words, framed and raftered
the pathway that you’ve trailed
lead to a monumental spiel
of a splendored love affair

Travel – “I will not do this again, I swear”

“I will not do this again, I swear !” (Anicycle at Kampo Juan, Bukidnon, Philippines)

The photographer said, “At the count of three, raise your hands, 1, 2, 3 “. I did not do it. The order fell on deaf ears. My knees were trembling while my companion was enjoying the thrill of his life. He was at the peak of fun while I was in labor finishing the distance of pleasure’s escapade.

My momentous beer moment …

______________

the lager is sleeping inside my glass
for hours i haven’t disturbed its trance
is it dreaming
all its own ?

the bubbles had subsided flat
coldness robbed by the meandering thin air
is it in a musing spell
slowly drowning my time ?


my beer had fallen into my mouth
the glass i held now in upside down
my thoughts had started to grind
the ending had just begun…

Life is beautiful… (Valentine’s Day)

________________


not yet a seasoned one
tending a younger heart
keeping it from the rain
guarding it from harm

the past was a lovely thing
we said okay and willingly
reaching the stars without wings
our world was never empty

we filled it with bliss and laughter
with pleasure and blessedness
the nights were in rainbow colors
words were sweet without bitterness

we’d like to sing the same old song
playing all over again the melody
love notes of trust that went along
lay open that life is beautiful…Happy Valentines Day !

Rivers and Streams

if rivers and streams flow where you are
i’ll follow the way flood waters behave
surging with strength, it’s noise reaching far
into the sea, to be part of the rushing waves

if summers do come and dry you up
revealing the character that you manifest
rivers and streams will become empty
wilted tree crowns, bad for nature’s forests

request for rains follow as i pray
dark clouds falling as you drench my way
to the rivers and streams i have followed you
where your love resides, your home runs through

Silent Companion

________________

you can’t be the sun
nor my morning star
you can’t be the dream
of yesterday’s scar

you can’t notably fit
into my own description
’cause you’re a class
of your own definition

maybe the bright full moon
can take your place
to be my silent companion
when love becomes a waste

Moment of Joy

_________________

This is my moment of joy
’cause you taught my heart
how to love and care
hatred and neglect were
abandoned affairs

Frequent smiles and laughter
sheathed the knitted brows of paint
silhouette of twilight time
enriched my image as a saint
