Heaven

6

You don’t have to perish to get there.














Too early to dream of heaven,
no matter how good the angels sing.

Too white the dresses in heaven–
Aren’t those only made for maidens
to bling?

Too high to walk my way up in heaven;
I’m scared of heights
to think about it even.

Too good for me to get to heaven;
I have flaws and ruins; and,
healing seems forever.

Too grand to be in heaven;
I’m getting used with simplicity
I see in acceptance.

that just between you and me;
I think,
we’re but making our own heaven.













The Paradox of Waving Hands

img_2044

 

 
Should I wave
from left to right
or close-open?

Should I wave
like Diana, Pia,
or Michelle–
but please
don’t say Melania.

Should I wave
far up in the air
or down
inches close
to my chest?

Should I wave
with flying kisses
or marching tears?

Coz though your love
may be the king,
the truth:
Mine’s
can’t be the queen.

So I wave
to say bye bye:
I can’t say good;
I can’t see good
as bad diamonds
keep popping
in my eyes.

To just touch your face,
I so dream
to do
every day.

To be in your arms,
I so ache
to be locked in
for always.

To hold your hand,
I so hope
be in hell
or high waters.

To wake up and being on your chest still,
I so pray
’til I close my eyes
to eternity.

To live for what we have,
I so cherish
more than diamonds,
golds, and silvers–
I do–
for the rest of my life.

For the only
forever I know,
is you.







Please tell Gabriel
you love me too.

. . . just as I did.












I thought,
I was just writing our poem.
I never knew
I fell for you
until tears keep falling
each time
I say:
I’d be fine
without you.

Man and NumbersĀ 

7

Tsk, tsk, tsk
tsk–
He really has a thing for numbers,
I tell you.

Alongside
his weight and body mass index,
length and width;
Imagine,
he eavesdrops his heart rate.

He squeezes ’til he sneezes
in dire attempt
to put his blood on a scale.

He even segregates white to red,
as if they’re Russia and U.S.
in conflict with one another.

He counts calories
and sugar
without using spoon
nor cups,
like as if
FDA requires
his nutritional label.

So I wonder,
what’s next,
Man?
Man, man, man,
oh man!
Perhaps he’s torn
between pores and hairs–
and which one
can pose
as his greatest,
and most meaningful
numerical challenge.

People

No-they don’t forget.
It’s just that
they procrastinate
remembrances.

No-they aren’t selfish.
It’s just that
they apprehend
sharing.

No-they aren’t unkind.
It’s just that
they are timid
of benevolence.

No-they aren’t proud.
It’s just that
humility
is such a challenge
to endure.

No-they aren’t gullible.
It’s just that
they have a thing
for possibilities;
and hope
is their fetish.

No-they aren’t narcissistic.
It’s just that
they take pride
in what they do
and zealous of
what they
dream
to be doing.

No-they aren’t idiots.
It’s just that
the course of
learning
takes a lifetime
to earn
wisdom.

No-they aren’t cold.
It’s just hat
love
has many faces
and colors
that confuse them.






Yes–People,
more than understanding the complexities
and tolerance of ironies
of their being,
their souls cry
for your
compassion,
People.















Thank you, People: Thank you very much for your support! I am humbled and encouraged as always by your appreciation and generosity. A blessed weekend to us, all.

Me Ke Aloha,
Aina

The Hands of Clock

1

Though uneven,
they travel in a steady phase.
Although the long seems more agile than the shorter,
It never matters
if they overlap one another.

Hence, even if the sun is shining bright;
Notwithstanding if the moon is too pale,
in track they stay
always working night and day.

Man thought
He can use this
to his advantage.

But amid knowledge and skills;
Given his vigor and technology,
Man can’t keep up with time
and fails.

Simply because,
the hands of clock are ever empty;
but Man always carry more than his hands can take . . .

. . . ever ensuring
he has everything
and nothing to worry,
he carries them all
no matter how trivial and crazy.

Note that this is not a mystery story
of a clock always up and too early;
but a classic on gravity
of a man ever late
and sorry.
