[THIS POEM IS DEDICATED TO THE GREAT EDSA REVOLUTION , TO BENIGNO ‘Ninoy’ AQUINO , who shed his life, so that I now experience the beauty of having the freedom to write anything. One of the many causes the He fought for.

Today (August 21, 20130 marked the 27th year anniversary of his assassination, His Heroic death.]

LAGTI
Art Work
Katahum.
Lusay
ibun-ag upod ang
Hangin

Lumupad.
pakadto sa kalangitan
hikapon ang kutis
sang mga panganod

Magginhawa
sang mas madalum
pa kaysa lawud
malusay pa sa silak
sang adlaw

Hulagon
and tubig sa isa ka
Ritmo
Itik-itikon ang mga
dahon sang kahoy

Ihutik
mga kanta sa bulan
kag mag huyop sang
mabaskog mapasaot
ang duta

Ano katahum
ang ibun-ag nga mag
sulat kag mag sulat
ginatukoy
Tingog
Dagway
Mabatyagan galing
indi Makita
Makita galing indi
mabatyagan

Lusay
nga daw Hangin

PUTI

anong kasing ganda
Malaya
pinaganak kasama
and hangin.

Pumailanglang.
patungong langit
kinakarinyo ang balat
nang mga ulap

Huminga.
nang masmalalin
sa karagatan
Malaya kaysa sikat
nang araw

Pagalawin.
ang tubig
sa isang ritmo
kilitiin ang dahon
ng mga puno

Ibulong.
mga awit sa buwan
at umihip ng malakas
para sumayaw ang Lupa

anong kasing ganda pinaganak
Para sumulat ng sumulat
hingil sa mga
Boses
Larawan
Nadarama pero hindi nakikita
Nakikita pero nadarama.

Malaya.
kagaya nang hangin.

WHITE

Beautiful.
Free.
born
to the wind

Soar.
the heaven’s sky
touch the clouds skin.

Breathe .
deeper than Oceans
bolder than Sunlight.

Move.
the waters to rhythm .
Tickle the leaves of trees

Whisper .
songs to the moon
blow loud the –
earth to dance.

Beautiful.
It is to be born
To write and write
on these
Voices.
Images.
Felt not seen .
Seen but felt.

Free.
like the wind.
