Emptiness

with 26 comments

Every time I walk

In this camp of deafening silence

I always feel the very emptiness

Of my wounded heart

 

I want to embrace and kiss with my beloved

I want to sing and dance with my beloved

I want to play and laugh with my beloved

But I can’t for I am far from my beloved

 

She is in the city

I am in the hinterland

She is in the city of temptation

I am in the hinterland of belonging

 

I can’t endure this life of mine

I can’t resist the belonging of my heart

I can’t afford not to feel her love

For I love her deeply

Water Travel

"Raging Sea" by Lucille Wallenrod, O...

‘Waves! Big waves!’ a boy yelled.
Riding hide, the launch heaved and rolled,
engine shattering, its sound changing,
upon salty water we traveled.

‘Waves! Big waves!’ a lady shrieked,
captain’s compass lost unwanted,
passengers screaming, launch was wobbling,
upon salty water we traveled.

‘Waves! Big waves!’ an old man yelped,
brutal waves smashing,
anxious passengers, water overlapping,
upon salty water we traveled.

‘Waves! Big waves!’ we all squealed,
launch’s engine halted,
passengers’ life jackets distributed,
upon salty water we traveled.

‘Waves! Big waves!’ we all prayed,
passengers trembling, wetted and paled,
the launch arrived safe and sound,
upon salty water we traveled.

Everyone of us traveled each day, yet, traveling in an open and raging sea on board a motor launch is a different story, it’s full of thrill and excitement. If you have not experienced this kind of adventure, you can always try but you must think of your safety first before engaging into this kind of activity. The poem “Water Travel”  from the book entitled “Whisper of Life ” written by Cesar Gealogo is a true account of the author’s experience from his younger years while sailing from his native barrio Zaragoza going to City of Surigao. Water travel well let you experienced, enjoy and get the feel of what thrill and excitement is all about in voyaging the raging sea.
