Outstretched are

green mighty arms

of thorny crowns

prickly under the sun.


Lowly shrubs

worshipping the sand

winding tapestries

of the golden strands


It swirls. It whirls.

The desert breath

summoning the clouds

to quench its thirst.


Its parched hand. 

Its speckled face,

lips of heaven planted

its misty kisses.


When the sun wearied,

will the cold rain

Preciously sparkles jewels

such in the night time.


Of  the dewdrops

cusped into little ponds,

clustering brown cakes-

the food for the gods.


Eastern winds

will etch  its caresses.

Like a lover

embracing the earth


Ah, in the arid landscape

a desert nymph beckons,

resplendent amidst  glory

divinely renews a vow.



welcoming back

a pilgrim finding respite

on its oasis.

Three years.  One hundred blogposts.  From country music to a foggy day rounded up three years of cent-worth of personal ramblings on life.  

At first, I only intended to try the blog feature of Friendster just for self-expression.  To speak up my mind more intimately on things we often neglect and have taken for granted.  

I am prompted to focus the themes of my blogpost on simpler things.  Of serene things that separates from the clutter of everyday.   A respite.  A balm to the soul. 

All around us are people of unending struggles to be understood and to be accepted.  Of  people living up to what this world dictates them to be.  Not realizing that their humanity is at stake among the many complexities and presumptions of these modern times. 

I believe that we need a pause to reflect and recollect.  To understand and to rationalize.  To put words written out from our minds and communicate. To put meaning into our lives and live through the years with hope of making this world better than we had found it.  To keep our feet rooted to the basic and essential.  To put the ignored and little things in life magnified into a vantage of inspiring thoughts and vivid images.

I thank all the visitors who shared their profound thoughts on the subjects I had presented, may it  be affirmation of their ideals or contradiction to what they believe in.  But in its essence, I welcome the connection among us and together, it has rekindled our interests to look inwardly among ourselves and search much more deeper within. 

I hope that my solitude and moments of silence in this page had brought you into a higher level of understanding.  I hope that it has brought you closer to the meaning of your own existence.  Of what it means to be alive and keep believing.
