Love, they say


Has no season, the heart chooses its moment to bloom

Knows no reason, begs for – a piece of your pardon.

Excuse the humble self, on the edge of some treason

On top of the cliff – with little care or bit of abandon.

The heart chooses its moment to bloom. Or, so people say /









Hears strange music, some inner commotion

Feet dance, in heightened grace and passion.

An inane soul bound, pegged, to some silly notion 

The heart beats to a love – that’ll find its way soon. 😉

The heart follows the beat of a music only it can hear/










* The idea for this ho-hum piece must have come from a previous post. This is the last of the series of poems written in one sitting, sometime in March – after going over T.S. Eliot’s poem, in this post. Hey, it’s undeniably summer over here, folks. I’m two shades darker already. 😉  Have fun, cheerio!

    Lovely poem, ‘San! You can have this printed on V Day cards 😀

    We have a few more days of “winter” left and then summer will kick in with all its fury soon. Until then, we’re enjoying the scattered rain showers and cool evenings.

    How’d you been? I missed you. Have a beautiful day!

    • hello, Nadia… missed you rin, di mo ako isinasama, heh. 😉 hala, ang baduy kaya? the last four poems were written in one sitting, mid March. thus, one story lang sila… last ang Love, they say – tinamad na sa dulo… ang layo nito sa The Things We Brave, haha. 😉

      heniwey, print it on VDay card, pwede rin … ho-hum nga lang.. 🙂

      malamig pa ryan sa inyo? kainis… enjoy the showers and cool evenings. am sure, your summer will even out things some, later, haha. joke. 🙂 enjoy winter while you can…

      i’ve been attacked by the heat, lost and gone without money, haha. and you were not around. you were trekking by the rivers and mountains, my dear. ^_^

      hala, mukhang Indian ka na, miss? send pics…. 🙂 good day.
