Rhapsody

Classical music has been part of my system since elementary grade and up to now it is still my favorite genre. Whenever I hear  an orchestra playing Chopin, Mozart, Paganini, Beethoven, and such, it’s nostalgic and full of various emotions making me forget a lot of unnecessary things or worries. It is my stress reliever and my inspiration. I feel in love, horrified, bubbly, sad, enlightened, joyful, victorious, loved and what have you.

The latest classical music i am very much into is the August Rhapsody from the movie “August Rush”. It’s so awesome that the listener could identify a lot of emotions and imagery as every notes dances in every meter of the music. It is overflowing as if it is calling out anyone’s name and invites its hearer to listen while the musicians plucks the strings, presses the keys of the piano, blows and covers the holes of the flute or trumpet, and strums the strings of the harp. At the first seconds you’ll hear the nature ( environment itself) ‘coz music is actually everywhere. Then, as the rhythm changes and gets louder and faster, its signifying  journey. As the music gets softer, the journey ends with a satisfying conclusion. A very good one.

Fierced one.

Biggest one.

Your indeed the brightest one,

Up there

somewhere,

Out there,

Could be anywhere.

Drowning me on your

endless universe.

Yet why does your

extreme calmness,

drives me towards

your serious stillness?

Iris,

this feeling of

excitement and mystery

pulls me like

an immense gravity

wanting

to be as close to you

like never before.

Being  as vast as seas, and

as terrifying as the blues,

waves violently tosses

in my head, crushing every peeble

I have at shore.

Why can’t I just

swim away from your azure

waters

And ignore

your once superiority

over mine.

Why are you my star?

New Life

good to have experienced planting you on an unstained soil of Mt. Isarog. I shall wait until you grow as tall as buildings in the city. Remember the hands who has given you a new life and a place to dwell, where you can give off oxygen to give life to others as well.Mt. Isarog National Park

Napadaan at Napatingin

Mga daho’y nagsisilagas
sa isang punong Acacia.
Lumuluha ng
dilaw at luntian
unti-unting dumadaloy
sa magasping na pisngi.

Marahang iwinawasiwas
mga sangang nangangawit
at pagod habang
pilit itinutuwid ang
baluktot na katawan na
nilipasan na ng panahon.

Kasabay nito,
paglapit ng isang batang
malayang tumutulay sa mga ugat
animo’y tsoklateng natunaw
sa lupa habang
binibilad ng tirik
na araw isang hapon.

Ito’y umakyat
sa malalapad nitong sanga,
manghang nakita
mistulang ginintuang rosas at dalandan
sa kalangitan
mayat maya’y sa abo na lamang
ang kahihinatnan.
