will it work with a yellow marshmallow?

that black rose
in the middle of your chest
the gardener did not forget

just that neither the sun
nor the rain nor the clouds
nor the wind nor the earth
are what paints it red

the life in you,
young flower,
is a gift of Heaven...

and then you die
as all of our days are numbered.
but then again
by power of spirit, of faith,

the love that surrounds you
pouring out from strangers, from family, from friends,
will breathe in you a new life
that never before have you imagined.

out of the tears you shed
watch your pollens spread
and by wisdom gained
watch yourself blossoming again.

and by wisdom gained
remember who is the wiser
the butterfly who fluttered
or the bee who busily worked.

........i'm just another writer still trapped within my truth........

i have forgotten about what it is to write...
to catch that in-between the silence and the heart’s beating…
and go about that divide which separates shadow from the ground…
Writing, my first love!
and so, i write. répondez s’il vous plaît.

naling'wan ko na kun pa'no an mag surat...
kun pa'no mahagilap an uya sa tahao kan kasilenciohan asin pag-ibot kan puso...
buda malakop iyan na nagbabanga sa anino asin daga...

An Pagsurat, sakuyang enot na pagkamoot!
biyo logod, ako minasurat. magsimbag ka.
