The leaves are falling

The grass will catch them with poise

The tall tree still stands
An attempt to make a haiku. Mother nature is a natural beauty!

How the body

of the dancer

Moves with


Eyes with make-up, closed while performing.
The only audience to the dancer are
One's heart and one's soul.
An attempt to make an imagery poem. Trying to describe how performers, in general, feel on stage. To express one's feelings as a performer on stage is a fresh experience all the time.

Babangon para sa 'yo
Nandito ang pangako
"Grabeh! Ang liwanag oh."
Kahit ano pang layo.
Ito ay isang halimbawa ng isang tanaga. Isa siyang apat na linyang tulang may sukat na pitong (7) pantig sa bawat  linya at lahat ng dulong tunog sa bawat linya ay magkakaparehas. Ang maganda sa tanaga, may inilalarawan siyang bagay na hindi dapat nasa loob mismo ng tanaga, pero kitang-kita kahit hindi banggitin. :) Sarap maging Pilipino!

“I want to live for myself.”*
And you guessed it right.
This was me, before I met you.

Always wanting to be busy
To avoid all kinds of thoughts
That could devour me at night
Swallowing every bit of what I deemed right
And not knowing how to keep everything in sight.

I start my day with the usual waking up routine
Eyes opened at 5:15 to take a cold bath
Wanting to wake myself up. Or was I really awake?
For goodness’ sake, I had no idea
What was going on in my head
Keeping myself always on the edge
This was me, before I met you.

“Never will I meet someone
Who won’t get me hurt.”
And on and on and on it goes
With my mind, slowly killing
My deepest sense of who I really am.
What am I to myself
When all I could see
Is not being the person
In the mirror of my soul?

But, on that day,
It was different for me.
You were with an old friend
Reality was bent, for I had the chance
The opportunity of a lifetime
To meet that girl
Who only gave me one word answers
An awkward and shy person
Who happened to be a dancer.
This is the start of a new friendship.

Fast forward to next week
The month of November
So full of surprises
My friend gave me a pass
To a debut and alas, you were there too.
Didn’t have any intentions to pursue
But why was my attention always directed to you?
I attempted to relay my emotion through the phone call of the
Devotion that my old friend had for you, but
Looks like my world developed a deeper sense of purpose.
This was me after meeting you.

Another week has passed and a blockmate wrote me on the guest list.
The night was going well
When suddenly
A person enters the room
The room remained dark, but my world was shone a show of light.
Two stars aligned and in between, was your nose.
I couldn’t believe it. Why was I feeling this way?
At the end of the day, I couldn’t listen to the ways of my
Heart. It’s because you had a heart
For someone else.
But, “the heart has its own reasons that reason cannot understand.”
Why did Blaise Pascal have to word it so beautifully?
And to top it all off, why’d you have to be so beautiful?

I was about to go home alone, when you offered me a ride.
Initially, I waved a goodbye, but you wouldn’t let me slide
This opportunity to get to know you more.
So, you brought me home and before you dropped me off,
With those sleepy eyes accompanied by the soft soothing sound of your voice, you said,
“Good night.”
And in that moment,
I knew I was in love with you.

This is now me and will always be me
Because there is no day in my life now
That I am not changed
And it is only everyday in my world that
My love grows for you.
I wrote this for someone very special to me. And, because of her, I am able to write like this. The words just flow out because I love her so much. You know what? Love is a beautiful choice and experience all the time. :) So, spread it to everyone you meet!

Mahirap na kung mahirap
Kahit sa simpleng bagay, mahahanap mo ang mahirap
Ang mas mahirap pa,
Kung bakit mahirap.

Mahirap na kung mahirap
Alam mo ba na
Magkaroon ng
isang tulay na
namang kabilang pwedeng daanan?

Mahirap na kung mahirap
Hindi rin kasi pakiramdam
Kundi isang pagtitiwala
Na kahit anong gawin mo
Hindi. Mangyayari.
Kung ikaw lang ang

Alam mo ba
Sobrang hirap malaman
Ang isang karamdamang

Akala mo ba
Mas mahirap mahulog mula sa bangin
Na alam **** lupa ang sasalo sa 'yo
Sa mahulog mula sa bangin na
Kung anong mahuhulugan mo?

Hindi ganyan eh.

Nagkaroon ng gana
Na magkaroon ng
Ganito kami
Ganyan din kami
Ganoon lang kami
Eh hanggang sana lang ba lagi
Ang hantungan ng tao?
Galaw ka. Huwag kang matakot. May kasama ka naman palagi eh. Mateo 28:20.
