Tonight I will sleep with the thought
that the moon hung low,
swell enough to illuminate
the dimmed sidewalk
we were strolling through;
a busy street
of a sunday eve,
laughing as we lost track.
Strangers brush past us—
oblivious of the blossom
enveloped within
the cocoon of our entwined hands.

And for a single moment
you allowed me to drink in the moonlight—
with your eyes
sharing the same glow as I,
which was nothing I’d ever seen before;
nothing compared to what I had.


Ordinary Universe

​Her mind is
Nothing but a wonderful blessing
Always yearning
Always growing

And here I am
But a blunt feather
Blown away by her endless wind
I float along the hush of her whisper
Of how grand of an angel she is
Eternally too big
And too much
To fit in
Our ordinary universe.

Manila Today

Intramuros, Manila—right outside the Manila Cathedral. At the left side of the picture is a traditional transportation called "Kalesa".

"The Book Stop Project" is a pop-up library that aims to reach its readers at the heart of Manila. Visitors can freely donate books, and as well as adopt one of their choice. Today, I dropped 14 books from my shelf and bagged Shakespeare's King Lear home.
My friend and I also visited the National Museum on its last day of free admission. Grabbing the opportunity while it still lasts!


I Hail The Queen

I am always entranced by the beauty of night, especially when the Queen Moon (yes, I cannot simply say the word moon without including the word Queen with a capital Q because, heh, she’s the Queen) rises and takes center stage — with her back up crew, those different colors of stars from plain white to extravagant blue, surrounding. No matter where I am or what I’m doing I always make sure to stare above, for how long I don’t know, and solemnly hail the beauty of the night sky. You must know by now how obsessed I am by taking all these pictures last night; one subject, tons of pictures. Only I wish I had the coolest tool to stargaze even better. But no matter how good of a quality the device is, it can never beat the actual beauty my eyes can see real time.


Blog Update (and a little unexaggerated nostalgia)

I think I might have come to the certain age in which tiniest details of a general life like choosing a blog theme can become so confusing and frustrating at the same time. I had been using the Gateway theme for over half a year now and lately decided to tweak some changes in my site appearance. I still love Gateway and functions that come along with it but it just doesn’t fit anymore, say for this 2016 and my blogging desires. So, I jumped out of Gateway and tried the looks of Lovecraft, to Twenty Ten, and lastly settling with My Life. I would like to apologize to whoever frequently pays a visit to my blog only to find my theme changing every single day.
