​In The Holes
(Matthew 8:20)

Foxes have holes, so do I…

Home, first hole, character-builder

Survival, protection, love reigns

Though poverty is a silent killer.


School, another hole, gold and silver

Scholarly competition, connection

Convent  thereafter converts sinner

Spiritual home, spirituality, formation.


Birds have nests, so do I…

Beloved Philippines, my first nest

Where chirping Mayas belong

Monkey-eating eagles soar best.


Migrating to Canada, a bigger nest

Where doves and crows freely fly

Problem, Catch 22 and grizzly bears

Encountered; Fight! That’s a battle cry.


The Son of God has shown

Writing, a literary prowess discovered

Found a way out of the holes, then

God-shaped hole, dear soul muttered.

Fresh and clean
From the familiar groove
Filled with zest for new life,
Lovelies of Mother Nature like me
Well, I like the season of spring the most
When lush greens grow together with me opulently
I flourish readily yet thrive elegantly in this time of the year
I am like a festival queen, reigning in the valley under the sun
I always make people smile, delight their eyes and inspire them best
I sometimes laugh, dance, and play with the rain, water of life and hope
I feel fancy coloured and blessed, set at the Creator’s majestic landscape
I give glory, grandeur and gramercy to our Almighty God in deep silence
Viewed utmost as a quiet communication and a spiritual connection
I am a world peace flower, far cry from the Skagit fever or craze
 Living merrily with the other bunches of colours to mind
My fiat, responding to the Source of the breath of life
Seeing visitors tiptoe through
All the beds of
A true
I say
Cup me
In your
I am a
