Do Not Expect Much In Life

to be happy
only be ready with what life is giving you
do not demand much
do not look for what is not there
take what is available
love when love is there
when nothing seems to go right
forget it
settle, stay, be still
nothing to argue
we thrive only with what is given us
nothing to grab
for there is always a space reserved for us
in the parking lot
for free
if there is no food
why not enjoy the air and the sea
and the birds in the air
and the scenery of mountains wearing snow caps
and the river singing

An Insignificant Pebble In My Hand

i am now into
useless things

like this pebble in my head
smooth, reddish, with some
gray veins
a paradox of youth
and senility

i hold it
i close my hands
and hide it from you

you who see nothing
significant about it

it is cold now and
it is keeping me warm

inside my mind

Her godmother simply touched her with her wand, and, at the same moment, her clothes were turned into cloth of gold and silver, all decked with jewels.

A School Bus Broke Down

A school bus broke down
while passing through the village road,
in a single road with ups and downs;

The youthful children alighted down,
Enchanted by the fields around,
Jumped with joy and singing all around,
in tune with sparrow merry go round;

The accompanying school teacher
who missed the childhood pleasure
got irritated and said, 'Shut up'.

The will does not learn.

The ass has a will to bear,
The bull has a will to be yoked.
The dog to wag and the fox
To cheat have their wills.
No literacy can change it.
No illiteracy can stop it.

January Apocalypse

Wrote this last January 28,2009 during the Sinulog Festival in Cebu. Heartbroken back then, basically, and was reading To Kill A Mockingbird. It's incomplete. The original and complete copy of this poem I left back in Cebu, and I can only remember the first stanza.

This was never supposed to happen
I never wanted it to pass:
Scout couldn't humor me no more,
She had me treading glass.
Jean Louise is gone... I'm the only one who weeps
Because she left me standing here, in the January Apocalypse.

Top 500 Recipes

Out of all of the recipes listed,
I may have heard of a couple of them.
The rest?
I've never heard any of them mentioned before,
In my entire life.
Why is that? And none represent what I like.

'This is 'my' top 500 recipes.
If you want your own on a list,
Create it to do as you wish to interpret.
Otherwise,
Sample a taste of my offerings...
Or ignore them.'
