a midnight walk with five dogs

breeze on a warm summer midnight brought an aroma of city pavement
reek in all sorts of odor emanating from sewers and uncollected trash
my canine companions all five of them excitedly chased stray cats
barking at every pedestrian through iron gr...

an october sunset

the shadows shifted
on concrete porch facing the sea
where the sun makes it journey into the night.
the usual afternoon breeze
turns the vane now and then,
while the sounds of traffic build up
on the boulevard below
signal the flood of huma...

Boondocks (bundok)

They are from time long ago standing still
Mute witnesses to the changing valleys
Generating an ever metamorphosing canvas
Of forest greens and tropical trees
Constantly reaching out to evanescent mist
Ever grasping the fast disappearing haze.

The lives we do not actually possess.

I struggled with a lonely crusade in my mind
recapturing their significance and meaning
to sacred rituals that drew us together here.
Then I preside the solemn liturgy of life,
qualifying the fading worth of our existence.
The solemn procession...

A mother’s love survives

Clutching the bundled rag
her scrawny fingers
conduct her tenderness
to a spare little baby in her arms,
asleep and secured,
unacquainted with the swirl of chaos
the crunch of urban poverty:
a mother’s love survives
the loss of human digni...

Engineered sanctuary

The miniature fountains gurgle with soothing murmur
engineered to restore harassed minds some balmy humor.
The gentle breeze serves its menu of classical melodies
as I preside the ritual sending-off of the sun.
Vivaldi’s concerto “The Four Seasons...

Porferio V. E. & his long lost youth

His shadow shifted in unsteady steps
As he walked with his well worn wooden cane
I read anticipation in his eyes
I celebrated the end of longing,
Even as I saw a wobbly old man’s
Beaming toothless smile: the familiar warmth
That sustained me throu...

The winter between us

With cold wet rain the sky pelted the earth,
the slippery patch of grass warns against tresspass
the weather imposed its walls between us,
even as we reach out with words our breaths
fogs and blurs the face of the other,
with submissive haste …...

On some lonely park bench

It was when trees were bare,
laden with freshly fallen snow,
the frozen earth
crunched at every step,
the sky threatened another round
of flurries to last all day:
I sought refuge from fatigue
and aimless wandering
on some lonely park bench...

A summer afternoon by Trajan’s column

Imprints of faces, heroes and victorious wars eternalized,
spiraled the alabaster column tell the glory
of an emperor long gone, his name divinized.
His 3D story made glorious by shadows
of the setting sun, worn by time and elements,

Treasuring a well spent life

Years long ago, I laid my head on cold, dry sand,
Close to where the seashore gave way to the ocean,
Stretching out my frail form facing the star-filled skies;
The sound of waves gently breaking on pebbled shore,
The pale moonlight glistening over...

Hala Bira!

Painted faces hide collective grimace,
Humiliation, hunger and pain,
A daily fare in their burdened existence;
But the festive antiphon kept resounding,
Hala Bira!
In articulated primordial scream
Bare feet stomping dusty pavements
To the beat of ...
