Afternoon Delight (Tanka 短歌 )


Afternoon delight
    To see father push and sell
        Walking past shadows
           the sun, the trees and the skies
              hungry men along the way

The Joy in Looking Up


Looking up the sky

is such a therapeutic momentary



the time

and see the extraordinary

beauty in simple things.


the air that fills up your soul.


to the eyes that behold from above.

And my mind never fails to capture

freedom .

* These are just random things and views I saw up there. Made me smile 🙂

Waiting for a jeepney sometimes could take a bit long. So to ease the boredom, God surprised me with this great fireworks display!!:)

Discover great ways to appease your boredom while waiting for a ride:) I love to look up the sky to predict the weather. Most of the time, to say a breath prayer. The clouds smile back!
morning jog at the park! 🙂 @Makati Park

I love to look up the sky to name the type of clouds (recalling the science lessons in grade school is fun) This made me smile while walking to my apartment. ‘Sea’ up the sky!:)

*Under My Favorite Tree

Simple things are extraordinary. After attending a class and some school stuff last Saturday, eating avocado-mango Sorbetes and Taho under my favorite tree at the Sunken garden as the sunset preludes was more than a weekend spa!  It was therapeutic to see people not in a rush, chasing time. Time decelerated as we began to silent our souls from the noise of life’s complexities. Joy became just plain and simple and I was sure it was genuine in all the smiles I saw as we did things for love.  It wasn’t just mere amusement. It was music to hear hearty laughter and there was serenity in all the happy faces I saw. And to me, it was a great taste of life as I savor the sweets I had and that silence that made me listen more to my own heartbeat. Indeed, there’s a unique pleasure in seeing people happy.  Sometimes, in a busy walk, we need to pause and breathe the fragrance of life in the flowers we overlook!:-)
