A raft to drift upon
When the world is thunders and storm.
The first rays of sunshine
After a hard winter of the soul.
The power to go on
When the heart is full of bruises.
The warmth of a fire
When reality is freezing cold.
The reason to exist
When nothing makes sense.

This is the definition of Love.
The pen casts a spell
to each of our little pains
Charged with our ache,
distills into peaceful stillness,
a final and blissful end
(Words indeed do save)
Humans saving humans,
this is true heaven, truly being blessed

We all take
slow poison
willingly -  when we allow
toxic people in our life
to exploit
our vulnerabilities,
to prey
on our weaknesses...
to infest
their misery
on our blessings...
My dear
I have seen them casting spells
so evil
that they left nothing
but a dry, barren and empty soul....
to be connected to all that is truly beautiful
is a gift that makes your life blessed and bountiful
to create love out of the darkness of space
is the power of light and its grace
we need not fear in times of peril
disaster strikes hard, but is of no merit
for you are made of Light
and you see that even in pain and death,
there is a continuous life.
i choose life, before anything.
You and I together
Make more than one plus one
As our efforts meld and join
The synergy grows fun

When we focus on a goal
Our purposes entwine
And lead to increased life
In both your world and mine

The synergy works magic
Spreading blessings all around
More smiles flash on faces
Where synergy abounds

So always act with synergy
As you go about your day
Yes, synergize with pleasure
In the most effective way

I do use the word Synergize in the poem, and I give credit to Stephen Covey for first coining that word in his amazing book, "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People". I recommend the book.

You can use Synergy in your life in so many ways!

When you have sixteen things to do, see how you can combine two or three. Also, synergize with people in creative ways. Two are better than one.

Old folks have so many stories to share
about the tales on the first rain of May.
Legends and myths are spoken everywhere.
To believe is yours, if you hear them say—
It can fully heal all of diseases
and can enhance one's physical features.
I wonder if it can heal the cases
of COVID-19 on a big measure.
But then, it's not really the rain that heals...
It's the faith we have and the hope we hold
to see the victory up on a hill
where death is defeated and life shines-gold.
So now, stand and cope up with the grieving,
'cause God reigns to fill our lives with blessings.
I started writing this sonnet poem since the 4th of May. (The first rain of the month specifically in my hometown.) Well, I was actually on my room when I heard the abrupt downpour of rainfall and it took me seconds of sight on the outside to be inspired in writing a new poem again. At first, I was just playing with the words that I'm using while finding the right mood when suddenly... I was reminded of the old beliefs that are passed down throughout the country that I am living in. (Philippines) Back from the days, most of the parents would never let their children play on the rain because of the possibility that they might get a cold. (I'm lucky enough that my parents don't care about that so I get to enjoy growing up as a kid who often plays on the rain.) But when it's the first rain of May, everything is different... Parents themselves are the ones to insist their children in going out to play on the rain. Some of them even go out too 'cause the legend says if you soak on the first rain of May, most probably you'll be healed on whatever disease you have and your body will pretty much be healthy during the whole cycle of year. Upon remembering the past, I wonder if it could ever heal the world during this time of pandemic. Well, I know it would be impossible to happen since it was a mere legend but... that is why I am praying to our God for the complete healing of the world. I know he'll send the rain to bless us with His holy spirit and to strengthen our faith for He is mighty above all things.
This piece is dedicated to all of us who have faith that we can overcome the crisis that we are in at this very moment. I love you with the love of the Lord!

I wish I could call
Everyone beautiful
there is dignity
in a simple thing like names
SOME PEOPLE DON'T DESERVE THEM?

buff blossoms bringing
bright bubbling blissful blessings -

Memories of an old friend's drum;
rejoice as your paths intertwine
and leave an emerald mark,
like a ferry towards safer shores
to guide you between kin's ways,
planting the roots of clarity
where you'll grow with the rhythm
of a ready wan light.
Thank you to teachers past and present, even if it's just a little advice you gave 😁
