Song

Happy Saturday dear friends and poets.

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, ย 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”ย 

Dies of Love (A Blitz Poem)

Dies of Love (A Blitz Poem)

heart cries
heart dies
dies in vain
dies in pain
pain of hoping
pain of losing
losing you in hindsight
losing you outright
outright i go
outright i cry
cry in agony
cry a river
river bank
river wild
wild lament
wild weep
weep bad
weep hard
hard to believe
hard to accept
accept facts
accept truth
truth you share
truth you bare
bare naked
bare soul
soul searching
soul peircing
peircing my veins
peircing my body
body aches
body cries
cries for hope
cries for love
love eternally
love forever
forever i long
forever i adore
adore and admire
adore and cherish
cherish recollection
cherish memories

memories of togetherness
memories of dreams
dreams forgotten
dreams stolen
stolen love
stolen hope
love
hope

For Val’s Scavenger Hunt, Blitz Poem on Death

thank you Val for hosting the August Scavenger Hunt, I had fun writing all the prompts

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a clichรฉ. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.

Lost

I’ve traveled to many places
wondered and wandered
over life, love
and “what could have been’s”
I was once lost

lost

lost in the wilderness
lost in the crowd
lost in my own pursuits
of “happily -ever- after”
of “dreams-do-come-true”

and

somewhere along the way
I was stuck, stuck and couldn’t
find my way, navigating was harder than ever
re-routing maybe the only way, but even then
road blocks were heavier, mightier than
any of my will power

until

somewhere in between
heavy rains and clouded skies,
beyond the horizon just beneath the rainbow
where they say a pot of gold rests, where no man
has ever ventured, I found, not a pot of gold

but, you

and, together we got lost
over gentle kisses and sweet embraces
over smiles and sighs and reliefs
over pieces of thoughtful memories
over love and dreams and plans

oh babe

let’s be lost together, forever

I Will Love You Forever, Too (Thank You)

Dreams really do come true. The ten – year old me once told my papa “one day, I’ll have my name in the newspaper, magazine, and yes, a book”.

It happened.

In two years, I published five poetry books.

My only dream then was to see my name on print. But with the grace of God I, Michelle Ayon Navajas did not only have my name on print but also a name next to a tag line; “International Bestselling Poet”.

I was literally shaking after I saw my 5th poetry book went straight to number ONE in less than 24 hours of its release in AMAZON.

Getting the most coveted Amazon orange tag “#1 New Release” is unbelievable.!!! And I am serious when I say I was shaking.

Once it was a dream and now it’s a reality.

Thank you all so much for the love and support
