    B&W Challange: A look over your country

    (Un regard sur votre pays)

    losing sight of the sea

    here i am strolling back to reality
    back to where lost weeks have been
    lost in the grasp of a continuality
    holding on to my being

    i should sleep to be able to wake up
    to hear the thunders to my skin
    whistling the echo
    of a fast-paced dream

    a film circling in my mind
    flicks of memory glances of him
    i feel the numbness of the air
    as i swallow in deeply
    tightening the grip
    weakening my stand

    i could almost touch
    i could almost feel
    i could almost taste
    the bitter-sweet nuisance of the sea

    drifting me afloat...

    and until now
    yes, until now,
    letting me be.

    note: Photo taken last August 20th at Subic Bay's Ocean Adventure Park, dubbed as "the first and only open water marine park in Southeast Asia".
    This should have been for last week's topic: The Sea (la mer), but yeah, it still applies for this week's theme.

    Illo Friday: Change

    ... from MS Paint to Camera Paint

    A face among the crowd
    like a passing storm
      her rain passed thru
    she once knew the incomprehensible view
    cast the twilight into the ravine
    craving the desire of falling in

    she must confront the inanity
      of the monsoon
    as she sprinkled the stardust
    to her eyes too soon

    she could have carried her shadow
    as she listened to the silence of the night
    sweeping the echoes
    making her senses fade

    the guerdon of what she knew
    is not the virtue of what she owe
    she shouted to the oceans to halt
    as she felt her feet slide
    carrying her consciousness aside.

    she woke up and saw
      that she was alone again
    in the vast emptiness of her yearnings,
    as all surroundings, time, and landscapes
    were blanched, robbed of color and relief

    an impassioned poet in a void
    occupied by an empty rhythm and beat
    all around her was an endless ocean
    a great soundless hole swallowing her.

    hearing whispers of undecipherable words
    teaching herself not to cry
    to make that big leap, that big change
    as she let time consume her
    and let her dreams pass by

    but in the end of it all
      she remained knowing
    she's not another face alone in the crowd
    as she hang on to that amber july.


    note: finally updated. light painting made July14th..

    B&W Challenge: Picture of Holidays (Photo de Vacances)

    Yeah, i know holidays are suppose to be cheery...

    September marks the first month of the Christmas Holiday here in the Philippines. Because it’s the beginning of the "ber" months.. Oh well, but for me, it's around this time of the year that a certain fear creeps back to my being. My old readers would know why, it’s because I have this fear of December. The reason? There is always, always, either tragic happening on this fateful month, or something so significant that it changes my life from then on. If you care to find out what, the archives on the sidebar remains there for a reason.. But I hope this year would be different. As a close relative will have their wedding on this month. Sincerely wish them all the happiness. I hope they wont end up as most abrupt marriages do.

    Sorry, but if this December would not be tragic, then that would make me feel at ease. This photo was taken on Christmas 2004. Year after my mom passed, the year i got my surgery, and year before somebody i love got very ill. And a couple of more deaths on different years preceding this. Maybe this photo is so meaningful it brings back joy and sorrow all at the same time.

    Oh my, i think my insomnia is getting into me. Four more hours before my night job starts and i still havent had a decent sleep. And reading my archives and looking at old photos adds more tension. There are just some feelings that can't disappear, they just get buried. Some may almost disintegrate, some still get unearthed.

    Photo Friday: Silver

    silver sea
    let your slow ripples envelope me
    as the breeze catch my plea

    slow tides
    succumb me to your endless embrace
    let me drown with your illuminating daze

    setting sun
    melt away the pain and numbness
    let me shrivel and sink to your caress

    untarnished sand
    cover me with your immaculate white
    into the safe haven of the endless night

    long journey
    floating across the waves the silence runs
    washed away, you left my sorrows gone.

    note: Photo taken at Snake Island, Palawan, last July.
    We were the only tourists left at the island when I took this shot.
    And just something to share.. on our way back to Honda Bay, the sun has already set, and as we passed by Bat Island, we saw bats swarming out of the caves to the sky.. the boat guide said it was rare for tourists to chance upon these bats for they always never reach that time on the sea.
