Age

A new age

A new chapter

You’ve gone through the pages

One after the other

On this new stage

May the seas be smoother

Flight

This is related to the yesterday’s post. I got inspired by the chirping birds that greet me every morning and was planning to write something about their song. I was also thinking how cool it would be, to be able to fly away with them and not be afraid of this pandemic. So I came up with this rhyme.

Take me with you, let me fly

Let my playground be the sky

Let me soar over hills and seas

Play with the butterflies and the bees

Let me have wings like that of yours

To reach the safety of the shores

And on the fields and gardens green

Is where we will rest for the air is clean

Finally Coffee

Photo from WordPress library

I dragged my feet as I walked out the bedroom


Eyes, sleepy and sagging…still wanting more sleep


I managed to take a shower, getting ready to work from home


Still I was feeling sleepy


Oh woe is me!


Finally after an hour or two, I decided I badly need one


So, a cup of coffee I drank and my day finally began

The Window

I sat at the dining room, working on overtime

I typed away to get the work done.

Then, a light came through from the outside

Illuminating the darkened space.

The sunlight coming through the window

And I thought, how beautiful it was.

What Do You Miss?

I miss hugging the people that are close to me. Right now, we have to keep our distance.

Even a simple high five has to be avoided.

Once normalcy returns, would you please give me a hug?

Hello earthlings! How’s quarantine (For those placed on quarantine)? Here in Cebu, Philippines, we are now on Enhanced Community Quarantine. Good thing I still get to work from home so I don’t have to worry about going to and from work.

How are things where you are? What do you miss?

Stuck Together

Let’s get stuck together from afar

Let’s do our morning routine a bit differently

Let’s stay indoors and enjoy the moment

Let’s do our part to keep each other safe

Hello Out There

On the inside looking out. Loving their freedom and energy. Sometimes I crave it. But also fear it.

“Put yourself out there”, they would say. I automatically think of being put on display for everyone to scrutinize, to look at. But I don’t want attention. I just want to be seen, heard. There’s a difference.

So, despite the fear I took the step and opened the door. Doing my best to be ready to take on the unknown.
