Have You Seen The Sky?

Here’s what the Corona virus and community quarantine made me do.

Have you seen the sky?
It’s been days since the doors were shut,
And now you question why
You just cannot go out.

Have you seen the sky?
The windows are your escape;
Now it’s faith and science to defy,
With heroes who do not wear capes.

Have you seen the sky?
A thousand lives have been claimed,
Unknown if you’ll see the world in July,
And still meet the people your heart named.

Have you seen the sky?
And asked for it to shine brighter
So everyone can get by
And once more spend time together.

A Tear for Fear

First of the year.

I’m trying my best to cope with something that I’ve been going through lately, so I guess I’m sorry, self, for starting the year (and the decade) with a sad piece.

To Hold

It’s been awhile.

Maynila

Wrote a short verse while on my way to work this morning. Magandang umaga! 😊

The photo was taken along Jones Bridge, Manila, Philippines and was post-processed by yours truly.

Poetry for You

Well, hello there, last day of May! 🙂 There’s this “Instagram game” that I participated in, and I realized the poems I made for this game are worth sharing. Here’s the deal:

Haha. Alright let’s do this! ☺️
Now you have to follow a few steps.
1. Send me a special number so that I can post the number and write something about you 😉
2. Put the same status as mine (Drop a ❤ and I will write something about you.)
(If not, I won’t post anything. It’s about celebrating people whilst they’re alive/in our lives& not when they are no longer with us.)
3. Once you are done, I will post the number you sent with what I promised to do in the caption.
This is about appreciation.

But instead of writing a plain message, I decided to tweak it a little bit and write a poem for those who would respond. Now here are those!

It was a challenge, writing poems about several people, but it was fun! And I’m glad they liked what I did for them 🙂
