Yesterday was truly a fulfilling night for great and aspiring writers alike. Celebrating World Poetry Day, Filipinas Heritage Library with Metro Serye and Ayala Land gathered great poets as well as musicians in a night of poetry reading and music. In the heart of the busy Ayala Triangle Gardens I was privileged to be part of this rare thing. I’m a newbie in poetry but all the things I witnessed and listened in these 2-hour literary night awakened something in me.
And now I’m sharing a few lines I scribbled in my heart inside a bus on my way home. I love to write again in Tagalog! Ang saya pala!
“Minsan kailangang lumayo, dumayo
taliwas sa nakasanayan ng puso
sapakat minsan, hindi natin alam
na nasa kawalan doon matatagpuan
ang pinakakamimithi, ang hinahanap.”
Full blog and a finished piece soon here in my pinkyreg.wordpress.com. Just happy to aspire to be like one of the great poets I met…someday. 🙂
