Happy Thursday dear friends and poets. . Today’s poem is 1st of a 3 – parts of poem i wrote called “I Didn’t Know”…and i am kicking it off with “beauty”. . This is my first venture on series poetry. Series poetry feature recurring characters and/or settings, often with a common tone as well. Serial poetry therefore takes an initial idea and expands on it over time, rather like episodes in a television show. . “”Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” Plato . Beauty . i didn’t know leaves could dance gracefully as the wind blows upon the signal of the monsoon rain while it pitter-patters on the roof i didn’t know loud rumbling thunder could sound like a love song; so gentle and so sweet
i didn’t know a tremendous flash of lightning could look like fireworks at night, flashing spectacular lights in jubilant celebration i didn’t see the beauty in them until the day i found you
i didn’t know beauty as much as I knew it when i had you
i’m no good at numbers, thus i suck at Math if you ask me to add a number then multiply and divide, i’d completely be lost, so lost i’d be hiding in shame and probably in guilt, i am guilty beyond reasonable doubt for not memorizing the multiplication table by heart
i’m no good at numbers, thus i suck at Math but i could totally remember the moment i saw you last, then add it on to today, and it’s a total of 180 days, equivalent to 6 months, that’s 4, 320 hours, my dear of not being with you, of not holding you close to me, of not feeling your touch
4, 320 hours, that’s a lot, a lot of lost opportunities lost chances and lost memories with you but what could i do? 4, 320 is not even close, close to current 4.55 million Covid -19 death tolls worldwide and so my dear, i know it’s been a while but hold on tight, hang on there ‘cos i know we’ll be spending 4 million more loving hours together let’s just stay safe and stay alive
i am grateful for the sun and how it sets magicaly upon the horizon it’s like rhyming the last verse of my poetry ending with the perfect combination of rhythm and rhyme a captivating nourishment for my ever thirsty poetic soul
i am grateful for the sun and how it sets enchantingly upon the horizon it’s like humming the most romantic love song with its soothing and calming melody bringing a restful respite to my wary soul
i am grateful for the sun and how it sets entrancingly upon the horizon it’s like coming home to your tender kisses, with the warmth of you embrace gifting my heart with the passion it so long wanted
i am grateful for the sun and how it reminds me of you, of our love, born upon one fateful afternoon as it sets spellbindingly upon the horizon
Happy Saturday dear friends and poets, I am reposting a personal favorite love poem I wrote, included in my 2nd poetry book “What If Snowflakes Don’t Fall In Winter?”, available via Kobo. com . .
I Love You, at First . you walked past by me wearing a dashing smile with the sun so hot and up, but the air was cool could it be, because of your easy-breezy presence, I was beguiled? or was it just me feeling the numbness of my senses I could drool? your smile I can’t forget and your laughter I can’t resist baby take me in your arms and hold me all the time ‘cos I don’t wanna live another day without you, I insist please kiss me, undress me, make me yours it’s not a crime the next thing they knew you and I were inseparable, profoundly connected we were like two people beating in perfect harmony as one the world was only ours to live and friends said “it’s expected” ‘cos even without a word the universe will conspire to agree, “it’s done” it feels like Christmas with you beside me all the time the joys and laughter we share each day long makes it always look like a holiday season perfect anytime the sweet little nothings make our bond greater and strong now I keep thinking of you and what to do with our life as we kissed for there is so much forever waiting for my dear, a forever in time ‘cos I don’t wanna live another day without you, I insist please kiss me, undress me, make me yours it’s not a crime it’s been many years and many Christmases, my dear but time has not robbed my feelings for you, I still love you tight it will forever be like that, oh so hot but cool morning, I swear the first time I laid eyes on you, I knew I loved you
i hope one day i can call you my own my own, to love, and behold, and to honor until then, i’ll do it in the best possible way my poet heart could ever be i thank God i found you just as exactly as i thought i never would just as the world seemed to be in a total reconstruction, total rehabilitation and we have no one but each other, to love and behold, to honor as we hold hold on to each other, rely upon one another i thank God He blessed you with life the life you shared, with all of your love all of your passion, and with all that you are and by the grace of the universe and all its powers i fervently pray may God gave you blissful life for me to love you, and behold you, and to honor you from this day on, ’till life forever

Today’s poem is from I Will Love You Forever, Too.
Grateful and Blessed to have all your love and support
waveringly, unsteadily, wobblingly we flutter, on the ground as we hover around and circle, and dance, a dance we call love but you know why I love to flutter, and hover and dance around with you? I love the sweet fluttering smiles I see on your face, an indication that we flutter on a happy ground, together let’s flutter, forever
Sharing with you all some lovely reviews of my 5th poetry book “I Will Love You Forever, Too” available for paperback and kindle file in Amazon. (Link in my bio) . “I Will Love You Forever, Too” is a no. 1 New Release in the category Poetry on Love and was in the Top 100 BEST SELLER for four (4) weeks. . . As we all take a quiet moment with our families on a blessed Sunday, allow me to say THANK YOU, all again for the love and support.
I’ve always been fascinated by how a song is created. Starting off from writing the lyrics to putting on the melody, to recording and finally making it available for everybody to listen, and like how a song calms and soothes our hearts, I too, wanna be someone who by any reason could bring peace, solitude and soothe a restless heart, a weary soul. Fun fact, a song without a melody is poetry. . My 5th poetry book “I Will Love You Forever, Too” is still available via Amazon for kindle file and paperback copy. To all my beloved readers and followers in the Philippines send us a message if you wish to have a paperback copy. . Song . i wanna be the song that would play smoothly and gracefully, almost in slow tempo i wanna be the song in motion of harmonies and melodies, with smooth voice transitioning soaring higher and higher . i wanna be the song that you would sing along on a long drive home i wanna be the song in your Spotify shuffle list i wanna be the song that would remind you of love never to let go . i wanna be your theme song that you would play as you walk down the aisle and say “i do” i wanna be the song that you would endure, as you take on the road to your “forever”
