Ashes of the Past
Jubail Aquino Dec 2018
The memories that were drawn by the past,
the colourful thoughts retained but gone to fade, thus each traces has remained within.

Time flies like bubble nor fogs amongst the wind
that rapidly obviates each and every moment.

For all single times went by,
for all the pile of hued scenes in our lives,
for all the tales of our immediate past,
luck indeed tends to come once in a lifetime.

...and when your wish finally came true,
embrace and don't let it pass,
because sometimes destiny is kind, selfish
or sulky.

Bethink that we cannot plead the time
to visit nor repeat the elapsed precious moments.
Treasure each moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special and remember time waits for no one.

Upos ng Kahapon
Jubail Aquino Nov 2018
Mga ala-alang iginuhit
ng nakaraan,
mga bagay na nabura
ngunit bakas ang marka.

Mga oras na lumipas
na katulad ng bula,
usok at ulap
- agad pinapawi ng
matulin na sandali.

Sa maraming
minsan na nag-daan,
sa maraming tagpo
- kuwento ng mga kahapon,
minsan lamang dumating ang
pag-kakataon.

At kung ang hiling
ay inabot na sa piling,
huwag ng palampasin,
Pagkat minsan - mabait,
madamot o matampuhin
ang tadhana.

Alalahanin na kailan
ma'y di maaaring
mapaki-usapan ang panahon
na ulitin o madalaw
ang lumipas na kahapon.

Beshie
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
There is no greater name
of true friendship and loyalty.

She gives forth
without truly
nothing holding back,
a beautiful creature who
gives all her heart -
loving you unconditionally.

She is one of the
creations of God
and called after his
holy name in backwards.
A creature who give love
and affection more
than humanity.

- A man's best friend

Learn to Fly
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
Every word is not
expressed in a precise way,
learn to navigate to each
verse and comprehend.

Poetry is not a roller coaster,
dilate your heart and you'll feel,
each sentiment is not just written
but hidden in mystery.

Huwag kang Mangamba
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
Kung ika’y nawawala
'di malaman kung nasaan ka
bumulong lamang sa hangin
sa bituin ika’y tumingin
...ako ay darating

Inuulan ka man ng luha
dumungaw man ang kaba
darating din ang umaga
kaya’t wag kang mangangamba
….nasayo ang aking puso.

Huwag, huwag kang mangamba
may kasama ka sa pag-iisa
mundo man may lumbay
huwag kalimutang may kulay.

Huwag kang mangamba
dahil buhay ay may pag asa
kasama sa pag-lalakbay
bigyang saysay ang buhay.

Mabagal man ang hating-gabi
narito lamang sa iyong tabi
pakinggan ang sigaw ng iyong puso,
naroon lamang ako
salubungin natin ang bukas
huwag kang mangangamba
pagkat 'di ako mawawala.

Abrakadabra
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
Tuesday years ago,
32 minutes before 5:00,
the time where the
adopted son of Calliope
caught Yuman's attention.

The moon quickly
jump off between
the beats of a human heart,
it's vast and bright,
unusual and odd
but perfect and majestic.

Right in the core of the town,
lamps fired by
itself  in blue flames
whilst snoozing seeds
begin to grow day by day
until a new paradise was created.

The new town was strange
- but heavenly beautiful.
Eros' formicas starts
falling in line and
waiting for the splash of the candy
in every ping-pong ticks.

Katoto
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
Puti at maliit,
madalas ay madungis,
ngunit ito ay may angking bangis,
sa umula't-umaraw,
sa malamig o sa mainit,
patag o lubak,
walang angal at
walang inuurungan
mapadpad man sa malayuan.

Dugo nya'y mala-rosas
isang beses lamang sa isang linggo
kung maligo,
ito ang kanyang premyo
sa kanyang husay sa serbisyo
pangalan nya ay toto
na aking katukayo.

- sasakyan
Katoto or toto means friend, pal, buddy

Rainbow of Ideas
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
I am a colour of thoughts.'

Flying in the shimmering
deep of imagination.

A creator of abstract doggerels,
a whirling feeling of amazement
into fragments of creativity.

For each fragment of me
am in each piece I craft,
I wildly pace to my tune,
and I passionately dance
to my own beat.

Humility
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
Strongly rooted yet flexible,
the higher it grows, the deeper it bows.

Bend but don’t break.
Keep calm and free yourself to sway.

Gently dance in the rhythm of the winds
and firmly stand to the ground.

Be a bamboo that stoops, but strong.

Bato Balani
Jubail Aquino Oct 2018
Mga paningin nating laging nagkaka-bunggo,
pilit man itong pigilin kusa pa ring nag-tatagpo
ginagala ang mata sa bawat sulok ng kwadro,
upang ito ay itago ngunit sayo pa rin sa huli dumadapo.

Bilanggo ang aking mga salita
gawa ng paralisado kong dila
tuwing ikaw ay malapitan kong nakikita.

Bibig ko ay mga matang malaya
upang mangusap at mag-pahayag ng mga
salitang di ko kayang masambitla
sa tuwing mata nati'y nag-kakabangga,
nag-hihimutok ang damdamin kong nag-babaga.

Dunong
Jubail Aquino Aug 2018
Basagin ang kokote, ilabas ang forte!

Sabihin mo man na punong-puno ng samu’t saring kaalaman ang nilalaman ng utak mo,

....wala rin itong saysay kung naka-imbak lamang sa loob ng isipan mo.

What is Love
Jubail Aquino Jul 2018
Love is more than sightless we know.
Love is the whole thing,
everything in this world;
- you can do either good or bad,
right or wrong,
in kindness or selfishness
- literally just for ourselves or to anyone else we genuinely love.
Love has it all labels – it’s all about us how we give love neither an evil nor a brilliant name.
Jubail Aquino May 2016
Sumapit na ang hating gabi,
Unti unting sinasakop ng pagbubukang liwayway.
Gandang iyong taglay,
Sa aking diwa'y nananalaytay.

Ang saglit na pamamaalam sa takip silim
bukas ay mababanaag nang muli ang ligaya ng pusong minsang nagdilim.

Ang kaaya aya nyang ngiti,
Higit pa sa ganda ng bulaklak. Sa magdamag kong pag susulat ng matalinhagang salita ikaw ang aking nakikita.

Pansamantala, sa agaw ng dilim at liwanag. Ako ay mamaaalam. Itinitiwala na lamang muna sa mga bituin na ikaw ay matanglawan.

... Sa araw ng bukas ay masisilayang muli ang ligaya ng aking buhay.

Ang Hiwaga ng Aking Paghanga
Jubail Aquino May 2016
Malayong tingin sa kalangitan
Ibig baga'ng ikaw ay aking mahagkan.
Ibinubulong sa hangin ang silakbo ng aking damdamin.

Hangin naway iyong iparating, ang awit ng aking malinis na hangarin.
Buntong hininga na di mapatid-patid maaari bang ipabatid? Di ko papayagang mawalay - tuwa, ngiti ng pusong tinataglay.

Malapit na, nakakalas na nga yata
Malay ba kung hanggang kailangan pang mapipigilan pa.
Kaya't bago man kumawala. Balutin na sa paligid ng piling ng aking sinisinta.... Ang hiwaga ng aking paghanga.
