Potpourri

SapinSapin

Shadows tapering
       Golden leaves now purplish brown
Bush tits tweeting sleep
 
Mane nearly gone white sideburns
Silhouettes a golden past
 
                 ###
 
Clouds hover moon peep
     Bats blinded head back to cave
Hoot! Hoot! Round eyes hoot!
                ###
 
Amidst laughter I walked the corridor
On my face arches of uncertainties.
 
I stopped.
Looked down.
Looked up.
Looked around.
 
For the first time I heard voices
Amidst laughter faces I adore
Comfort I found arches of certainties.
 
                 ###
 
Love replaces death
                 Hatred never dominates.
Love, hate, common, not
 
Adore, ignore, both succumb
Love fires to flame, hate ashes.
 
                 ###
I picked a stone, yes
It left a mark_ shallow yes
Too deep for a rock
 
I moved a rock it left a
Mark_deep too shallow for stone
 
                 ###
 
I see and I weep
Upon the shadow you cast
You dreamed too deep
Find it shallow to last
 
I see and I weep
Upon the glory you reaped
You tried you created
Beyond what was rated
 
I see, at last I no more weep
You made a shadow of a leap!
 
                 ###
 
Dream always I will
For is not in dream
Realities are created
One’s very being a dream?
 
I will scale every brick
That made Rock-e-feller
Reduce him to a Poor legend
Against a beautiful Song I will be!

©NDR 7.23.2016 '60s verses

Such a hot day today, a lazy afternoon. This made me put together,
layered, a few verses from the past in the fashion of "sapin sapin"
layering of multi-colored sticky sweet rice cakes Filipinos enjoy as
desserts or snacks.
