Traffic and Waiting

Standing in line

Waiting for oblivion

Ages it would seem before I get out of here

The standing

The waiting

As everyone else seem to go by

This is me

Waiting for a jeepney

It was the end of the week

It was the end of the work month

My spirit was high but I didn’t feel like working.

.

I was in a good mood

Listened to some good tunes

I wasn’t feeling down but I didn’t feel like working.

.

I hummed along to a good beat

Last song syndrome on my mind and on repeat

My menstruation was done but I just didn’t feel like working.

.

The hours crept by and then the end of the day

My heart sang with glee as I hopped my way out of the office

Finally!

Just A Tree

Skyscrapers are all that’s left of this world

But I console myself with books and stories from the old.

They tell of how green and tall the trees use to be

Some grew in meters high that the top you could hardly see.

Now, buildings tower over everything

The trees are all gone, reduced to nothing.

Oh! What I would give to see a tree!

Slow Down

Take time for yourself

Breathe like it’s your first time

Feel the breeze and enjoy it

Take it slow

It’s okay to do nothing

Dark And Bitter

Why so bitter?

Why so dark?

So they splash a little milk or creamer to add a bit of colour

But that just ruins it, doesn’t it?

The aroma, the realness, the pureness

That’s what it’s all about.

So no, I say no to the sweetness of sugar

And no the any creaminess

You see,

I like it dark and bitter.

——————————-

Ever since trying intermittent fasting, I’ve been into dark coffee. Been used to creamer and sugar that it took quite a while for me to get used to the pure bitterness of it. Now, I can’t get enough of it and prefer coffee as it is. How do you like your coffee? Or are you more a tea person?

Hear The Rain

From the sky it fell

Putting the world under its spell

Listen to the splish and the splash

The pitter patter of it trying to wash

Whatever needs it most

Listen to the rain’s lullaby

Hush, hush, hush, goodnight and goodbye

Before Bedtime

Getting ready for bed, all excited and dandy

I can finally rest my head on soft pillows I have handy

I peep through the window and something caught my eye

Something beautiful that I cannot deny

The moon smiled but with a different color

It smiled bright red, that I’m sure

I smiled back, silently thanking for a good night.

Silence

The usual noise of the city beats

Not heard of today.

Today, empty are the streets

Lazy was the day.

The usual crowd are not seen

They’ve taken their long weekends

Such a change of scene.

The busy city is silent.

Gloomy Summer

Dry spell happened even before summer truly began

It’s been hot and humid, to the heat I’m not a fan.

And now on recent days it’s been rainy and gloomy

It’s like a weird summer abnormality.

But to the cooler weather, I am not complaining

I wouldn’t complain even if it were raining.

I welcome this cooler summer while it lasts

As it won’t stay like this for long, according to the forecasts.

Scorching Summer

The ray of sun pierces through the window

The light’s reflection playfully bounces

Outside, the heat of the sun is scorching

Summer is creeping in
