The Travelers’ Chorus

This earth’s pilgrims, wayfarers
Aye, chasing time, here and there
Seizing every opportunity,
Showing they’re worthy dwellers
Of that regal, eternal City.

His Awaited Trip

20140313-231356.jpg

His eyes, bleary and tired
He closed them once to find
For a while some peace
Away from hustles and hurries
He opened them, only to see,
“Oh, I have missed
My most awaited trip!”
He cried, and did he mourn hard!
But the city wind whispered,
“Boy, wait you must,
And worry you must not.
It may be a trip not meant
For you to grasp and take.”
His eyes, once bleary and tried
He kept them open, he realized
“I have learned, faith we must;
Things happen accordingly
To those who believe and trust.”

The Wait

She waits
She looks down
Oh, it sure is lovely,
The scene!
The brightness of beauty,
The yellow and green!

She waits
And at times,
The cold wind visits
And at times, hunts.

It sure is arduous
To fight the cold!
It sure is arduous
To fight the beauty
Of temporal bliss!

But while she is here
She will keep her faith:
The glory of things
Yet to be seen
Is beyond the sufferings
Of the battle she is in.

She knows
She learned
That glory is
Worth the wait.

Sojourners

Focus on the vast sky,
Up in the highest zenith,
He is there,
The best inspiration
Us, sojourners, could have.
Look up with trust
Faithfully fight
              The distraction, bafflement                
Of roads, bumpy
And wires, entangled-
It is only for a while,
It is only for a while.
The peace we will have
Up in the highest zenith
With Him there-
We know, it will be endless
We believe, it will be endless.

Morning Poem No. 7

20131207-083729.jpg

Sweet sunrise
Morning breeze
The rays that hug
The winds that kiss
Kvell!
‘Tis sheer bliss
Be thankful!
‘Tis an added day
Of quietude
Of peace

Luz

 

hold on tight,
never falter.
that day, too,
shall come
when at last!
we shall see
the
glorious
wonder
of that
Light that
shall never
flicker.

Keep the faith amid the rain

For the past few days, rain has been the constant company of us, Filipinos. Cups of coffee and greetings of concern give warm to our households.

Little as this may be, here’s a gentle reminder of how we should not lose our faith to the One who can soothe this stormy kind of weather.

May He keep us all safe!
