Nakapangalumbaba...

dungaw ni Juan
tila malalim, malayo
malabo...
nasasagkaan
ng pader ng panghihinayang,
ng pag-asam...
ng tamis, ng pait
sa labi at mata'y
banaag ang malalim na pag-iisip!

isip niya'y naglalakbay
bukas...
ngunit walang maapuhap
sa dako ng kanyang pangarap!

yosi'y nauupos na
magkano na nga ba ang isa?
di namalayang nakaipit
sa nakapangalumbabang bisig!

Malamig na ang kape mo,
timawang JUan!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
