JoelJosol Posted June 23, 2016 Share Posted June 23, 2016 I am a wilderness where even a wild wind do not blow to bring rain clouds overhead and cool my parched earth. Not even wild animals howl at me or a full moon to cast its light on my barren ground. No roads ever lead or end in me. So I howl in my loneliness but the heavens do not care. The stars hide their shine behind clouds that hold their rain. I could not produce even my own tears but I dream of seeds of trees crawling deep into the earth like earthworms, to one day break forth into the light, its branches wagging against the sky, the stars, the clouds. This earth will become an orchard garden. * Hi. I am glad my account is still here after what 2-3 years? I am trying to revive my passion for writing. I am saddened by our group's recent loss of a fellow poet-writer. My interest was revived when I saw on local TV a spoken poetry session. I wrote some pieces but in Tagalog. I will try to write something this year in English inspired by Sarah Kay's performance in YouTube.
