The Beauty of Our Domain

The Beauty of Our Domain

Wake up to the pale light of the lovely morn
Hear the birds sing praising for the new day
As the sun rises, new hopes are born
Worries disappear, your heart joyfully sway

The ripples of the brooks, how pleasant to hear
Roses’ inviting fragrance is life to smell
Your long-borne loads will be easier to bear
You will raise to heights no one can tell

As the sun shines on you, my dear little son
Life-giving warmth sooth through your heart
And all of your trouble will turn into fun
Life, hope, and joy will fill your every part

Behold the waves of the ripening grain
The breeze will bring you their pleasant smell
With thoughts that your existence is not in vain
They fill your life with unending thrill

When the sun’s heat burns your sweaty soul
The green shady trees silently invite you
The rippling brooks fills your emptiness to the full
With crystal-clear water, all your sorrow will go

Behold the peaceful blue sky
While the pretty lovebirds tirelessly sing
Your thoughts will soar a thousand miles high
Your exhausted breast will merrily ring

Behold the inspiring things around you, my dear
They are colored with the light of the golden sun
The green surroundings that this place wear
Help make you strong and your weariness be gone

The penetrating cold wind that softly blow
Make this paradise dance with glee
It will tenderly shake off the failures you knew
New hopes appear, away your doubts flee

The murmur of the creek’s clear cold water
The sighs of the breeze as it blow over the fields
They’ll create in you a heart-touching prayer
And you will reap the lasting peace that they yield

My son, see the paradise’s colorful sunset
When the sun will rest after its weary day
Darkness will begin to spread its confusing net
The once blue sky will slowly turn to gray

Before the darkness reign, the sun will turn to red
The lovebirds’ song become so sad as if they weep
With motherly lullabies, they bid their young to bed
And when the night come, all living creatures fall asleep

Heart-hugging calmness is what you feel, my dear
When you are in our paradise’s night
Soothing night breeze pierce you like a spear
It’ll refresh your soul till the fading of your light

The pale moon will shine on you while you peacefully rest
Dancing over you are the glittering stars
You will be in your dreamed comfort at its best
Heartaches will be forgotten, gone will be their scars

Feel the tenderness of the roaming night winds
It will loosen your breast which had been so tight
Its profound joy to you it kindly lends
You will be in paradise till the dawn spread its pale light


sometime in mid ’77

Kung Bakit Natalo si Manny

larawan galing sa

Ang pananampalataya ay hindi katulad ng pagbabayanihan sa paglipat ng isang bahay na kung saan mas marami ang nakikisali, mas gagaan ang kakargahin ng bawat isa. Bagkus, ito ang kabaligtaran. Ang ibig kong sabihin, ang taong may dalawang relihiyosong grupong kinaaaniban, parang dalawang bahay na rin ang kanyang pinapasan.

Iyan ang nangyayari kay Manny kahit na ang kanilang labanan ay puno ng kontrobersiya.

“Gusto kong makita ang isang tao na nagmamalaki sa lugar kung saan siya nakatira. Gusto kong makita ang isang tao na ipinagmamalaki ng lugar na kanyang tinitirhan.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

Kung Hei Fat Choy 恭喜发财 2011

Kung Hei Fat Choy 恭喜发财
Happy Chinese New Year 2011

Chinese New Year is a product of the Lunisolar Calendar
The Chinese calendar harmonizes both the Lunar cycle and the Solar year by incorporating astronomical observations of:
a.The phases of the moon and
b.The apparrent path of the sun

How is Chinese New Year’s Day determined?
In one sentence, the Chinese New Year is the second New Moon after the Winter Solstice. It is based strictly on astronomical observations, and has nothing to do with the Pope, emperors, animals or myths. Due to its scientific and mathematical nature, we can easily and precisely calculate backward or forward for thousands of years.

The Winter Solstice occurs when the apparent path of the sun reaches its lowest point on the horizon. To an observer in the northern hemisphere, the sun reaches its lowest height of the year on that day. The shadow it casts is the longest. For an observer in the southern hemisphere, the opposite is true.

Pasasalamat sa Maykapal

Noong isinulat ko ito mahigit tatlumpung taon na ang nakaraan, nasa malalim akong pagmumuni-muni tungkol sa ganda ng kapaligiran. Dumaan muna ang mahaba-habang panahon bago ko napansin na ang tulang ito ay tumatalakay sa ating limang pandama (senses), ang pandinig, pang-amoy, panlasa, panghipo, at pananaw. Dahil nito, buong-puso kong niyuyukuran at pinasasalamatan ang Nag-gabay sa akin upang maisulat ko ito.
