prelude to unfamiliar territory




I moved to admire a charming garden,
and to its calming zephyrs, I paused to listen;
with sweet morning dews that hugged its earth
and lovely blooms to soothe one’s breath…

though I know that this garden’s not yet owned,
to come near's still a trespass; like a guarded lawn;
but like a drifter’s journey to the unknown
he took risks just to catch a glimpse of the horizon.

so don’t take me wrong, for I knew where to stand,
though yes, I may have wished to stay in this ground;
but it’s like dreaming of dreams without any reply,
that I’d rather be waiting for the ocean to dry…

and go, I must, for I have to leave anyway
for tomorrow’s my last to admire you and stare;
and bring with me your beauty, stored but in my mind;
and bring with me your beauty, but never this dream.

oh my!!! why would this poems be like this? brings tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart. madalas sa hindi, nararamdaman ko ang parehong damdaming nasa sa iyo habang sinusulat ang tulang ito.

napakagaling mo boss, pag nababasa ko mga sinusulat mo naiinspire ako magsulat.

mkmre said...

it makes me envious kasi you write poetry in both english and tagalog - and parehong napakagaganda at magaling.

lalo na ko maiinlove nyan sayo hihi...

Para ma-inspire kang isulat ito, masasabi kong napaka-swerte ng dilag na iyong tinutukoy dito. Sana lang ay huwag kang mawalan ng pag-asa at ipagpatuloy ang nasimulang pag-iirog sa kanya. Marami ang manghihinayang kung ang nasimulan ay mapupunta lamang sa wala.

rhea said...

owshocks, bakit ba you CAN'T???
parang you're NOT the sherwin we've known before: you're always up to challenges and ikaw ang taong alam naming who never really give up and lagi kang "TRY AND DO YOUR BEST."

well naghihintay lang naman ako at si M din hahaha... nandito lang kami no, ano tayo na?

beatrice said...

i wrote a poem after ko mabasa ang verses for a starbuck's cup mokasi nakakainspire na parang akala ko kaya ko din gumawa ng kahit half ng skill level mo. pero ng matapos ko na, malayong malayo pa talaga ako. napakagaling mo at nakakainggit ka nga kasi you can express your self in poetry at english and tagalog pa.

wala ka pa ding pinagbago mula nung college ka: nakakatuwa ang humor wits mo pag kausap ka pero pag nagsulat naman soooover lalim...

btw, kahit may bf ako iiwan ko para sayo hihihi
