Morning Poem No. 10

20140417-151718.jpg

Standing here, by the lavenders’ nest
Breathing in beauty, sighing admiration
Seeing the sun cresting in the fresh,
Bluish sky — Ah, Inspiration! Inspiration,
You fail never to enfold me every morn!

El Sol y La Luna

He was the East she has longed to hold
She was the West he has never known
The tik’s and tok’s the clock has cried
It was Time who made their tearful divide!

A Jaded Heart’s Cry

let the tranquil sky,
the gentle breeze dry
your jaded heart’s cry.

let that cleansed eye see
that each of us has his
story of pain and agonies-

in time,
the sturdy trees
lose once
beloved leaves;

in time,
the sun is set to kiss
its flame goodbye,
it has to cease.

remain in faith,
be steadfast
while you wait.

lose not the will
to fight a good fight until
the end
for the greatest meed
awaits those who will
endure until
the very end.

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!
