Cebu, Philippines

While l was looking for a particular post I did before, I came across an old poem of mine written in the early days of this blog.

I didn’t find the post that I was looking for (maybe I didn’t post it here or maybe I’m just getting old….er), but I found this post I made about my hometown. I think I should write more about the beauty of where I live.

This post also reminded me that this blog has been up for eight years! Wow! I didn’t think I’d be writing er typing or posting poetry for so long.

Without further ado, here’s the poem. You may also check the original post by clicking here.


“Beautiful Cebu”

Wide is the sun, light is the wave

Dark is the chocolate, the one I crave

Beautiful is the island, Pearl of the Orient Seas

Cool is the pineapple, wonderful is the breeze

The cross of Magellan, momentous where it stands

Near the church majestic, colossal and grand

Beaches, waterfalls, a paradise in Malapascua; a place you want to stay

Or maybe to a mountain top of a view that takes your breath away

Relax and unwind from the busy schedule

I stretch my legs and slice the mango; tasty, juicy, makes my saliva dribble

I listen to music from a guitar of awesome handicraft

This is Cebu, a place I call my home

Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan)

Let’s pray for those severely affected by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). Here in the Philippines, Samar and Leyte are the ones affected the most. Thank you Lord for keeping the people of Cebu and Bohol safe. Please take care of those affected most. Help your people here in the Visayas as we are still recovering from the earthquake and now, we need to bounceback from the typhoon.

Thank you Lord for keeping my loved ones safe and sending Your angels to protect us here in Cebu.

Those who are reading this post, please help pray for us here in the Philippines.

Thank you and God bless.

Beautiful Cebu

Wide is the sun, light is the wave

Dark is the chocolate, the one I crave

Beautiful is the island, Pearl of the Orient Seas

Cool is the pineapple, wonderful is the breeze

The cross of Magellan, momentous where it stands

Near the church majestic, colossal and grand

Beaches, waterfalls, a paradise in Malapascua; a place you want to stay

Or maybe to a mountain top of a view that takes your breath away

Relax and unwind from the busy schedule

I stretch my legs and slice the mango; tasty, juicy, makes my saliva dribble

I listen to music from a guitar of awesome handicraft
