Biography of Philo Yan
I was working in the corporate world as a branch head of an insurance company for more than 28 years. I have opted for early retirement 2 years ago.
Now I am a full time blogger. I also have a passion for art and have discovered I have a knack for poetry. Usually I will write a poetry that goes with the drawing I have done or I will pen one for my fellow artists when they post their work. Not all but those that speaks to me.
So I thought that I should share my poetry with like minded people and in the process get to learn how to write better poetry. So if you like to share how you write your poetry, I am all ears.
Thank you for reading my work and I welcome your feedback.
Philo Yan Poems
HOW TO BE AN ANGEL
To be an angel bend don't break To be an angel give don't take
In the jungle, a lion's roar, Loud rumbling from it's core. Magnificent mane of golden brown, He is a king but wears no crown.
A tiny Costa Rica frog was caught in heavy rains He hops around to get away Pitter patter water pains
When things around seem not to work When people you know don't seem to care When you start feeling that you are dirt Which way you turn, Life seemed unfair
COLORS OF THE DAY
May your colors of the day Be vibrant and happy gay Like the summery breeze Or a flock of migratory geese
50th Birthday and A Rose by any other na...
Version One ============ A Rose is not a Rose without the thorns,
MONEY CAN'T BUY HAPPINESS
There's more meaning in life than money There's more meaning if you have your honey Money can't buy you happiness the type that last till eternity
Life's dangers, Life's drama, A violet field, A panorama, Spell blinding, fiery ball. Gliding on horizon fall.
An exquisite Geisha. From Japan, Asia.
A sinful delight, melting slowly, Hey, so what! Get heavy.......
Hubby snores, a midnight train, Left arm is giving me pain, Eyes wide open, energy drain, Can't fall asleep, I speak plain.
Standing twenty feet tall. Long neck, bent slender, Standing five feet small, Caressing gently, tender
PRIDE AND EGO
Pride comes before the fall. Learn from mistakes, that's all, The bigger the Ego, the harder you fall, So stand firm, stand straight, stand tall.
Rounded sun so very bright, Fading fast on soft snow white, Slowly, creeping windless cold, Anew and the passing old.
The physical self is just another shell
that comes in many shapes, S, M, L and extra L....
But the inner self is much larger than life
and one to find it, only time will tell.
Firm butts are there for the men to look or enjoy
As nature has made men with an active mind and toy
Now the woman's body is a form of joy
And the men who appreciates it will not act the boy
