Wind & Kisses
Shadorma

Sweet and soft
The northeast wind blows—
Heart tickles
Skin shivers
As Boreas sends his kisses
In the breath of wind

My world froze when I look into those eyes—
A moment I yearned to last
Until the end of time.

Night of Symphonies

Night of Symphonies
Tanka

The night’s orchestra—
Whistling winds and rustling trees,
Plays a symphony
As we danced around the fire
Hand in hand and eye to eye

Tears at Dawn

Tears at Dawn
An Aubade

Mahal, ikaw ay nasaan?
Sa gitna ng gabi ako ay iniwan
Sa malupit na dilim, nagsusumamo
Na sana maibalik ang ‘ikaw at ako’
Ngunit mga luha ay hindi mo nilingon
Pag-ibig mo ba’y nalimot ng kahapon?
Dinggin ang pusong nagmamakaawa
Sana ay balikan sa dapit-umaga

~English Translation~

Where are you, my love?
In the middle of the night you left
In the cruel darkness I pleaded
To bring back ‘you and I’
Yet you failed to see my tears
Was love forgotten in yesteryear?
Hear this begging heart of mine
Please, come back to me at dawn

Wildfire

wildfire-bend-wedding-photo-josh-newton-4

Wildfire
A Free Verse

 We were
Flickering flames
Tiny budding flares
Burried deep within
Until love came
Swift as a thief
Igniting us with every gust
Turning flames into a wildfire—
Devouring your reticence
Engulfing my fears
Consuming our sanity
Our reason
Our virtue
We were madmen
Shouting down the street
The echoes of our hearts
Until we sizzle into nothingness
In the void of warm hugs
Laughter and
Kisses

Behind Blue Eyes

Behind Blue Eyes
A Free Verse

There is beauty in wrinkles
An unmistakable splendor beyond age
In his shrunken leaf enfolds
Eternal flame that won’t fade
A crown of silver hair
An inescapable fixed mark
His fairness may decline
Yet a timeless youth hides
Behind those blue eyes

Universe of Us

Universe of Us
A Free Verse

Take me to the void
A world of utter emptiness
Beneath those silky sheets
Find our own abyss
In soft breaths and whispers
Let’s recreate a universe
Where serenity resides
And inner peace lingers
Let me curl into a question mark
Wrapped in your arms
I ask no needless answer
Just the touch of your warmth

Ang Naghihintay

Ang Naghihintay
A Free Verse

Sariwa pa sa’king gunita
Ang pagsilay ng iyong mga ngiti
Mga titig mo’y tanda ko pa
Habang tanaw ang mga bituin
Kaya, giliw, hiling ko lang
Hagkan ka ng mga hangin
Pag-ibig ko’y iyong damhim
Wari malaman mong
Ako’y naghihintay pa rin

~English Translation~

In my memory resides
The thought of your smile
Your stare- I still remember
As I gaze upon the stars
Thus, my dear, I only wish
The winds to kiss you now
For you to feel my love
And know that
I’m still waiting, somehow

Makita ang ‘yong ngiti
Pagod ko’y napapawi

The man of my dreams
At the sight of your smile
My weary heart’s at ease
