A lonesome bird sings the evensong
his frantic wings beating towards home.
I count my treasures in the dark
where suggestible senses hold little sway.
Moments tumbled through my fingers,
flickering shadows danced by candlelight.
Would that I could keep only joyful moments;
somehow laughter and tears look alike in the lens of time.
Could a rose be parted from her thorns
and still be one integrated whole?
This I know -
the sunflower that reigned supreme in summer
is the sunflower bowing her head to autumn
How sweet the night playing rain’s broken symphony -
I am where I should be.

Ang ganda. Kumusta na?
Ok Naman, Arlene. Unfortunately, I have to attend to so many things, I barely have time to blog. I try, though, to keep this page alive by posting once in awhile. 😊 Kamusta ka rin?
Love the photo!!
