Poro Point (Poem)


By Alejandro Hufana

The rocks still roots the water
Tauter than that the boy int he channel
That marks where men-of-war should enter
And avoid the shallows of the turtle
The lighthouse eye puts out. Today’s communion

Is in the pulpit of the machine
Now when all owes it religion
What adventure had the aborigine?
One make-up moment to be emperor
IN this haunted hamlet on the coast -Fishers foam-furrow the equator
TO homage at a trading post.

Now when divinity is frail
Between the radar poles and the wishing well.
To beat the mind to a bell
In bretheren’s bones with the sunken sail.

As if from rising bottom, sound of sand
Spills out cargo and conqueror
On seven sights of land
Far from either rock or bouy
Like a prayer’s amen, and ahoy!
The brief bed of he whirling whore,
The sunbath, the pinpointed star,
And the native full five-strings deep in his guitar
Sermons how to suffer.

Now back to feed the lamps their fuel
While the rock still roots the water
Tauter than that the bouy in the channel.




by Augusto C. Caranjal

We run away from God
Without stopping even to look back
He is behind us wherever we go
If we fall, He picks us up
Only to continue running our ways
Panting and thirsty, we still deny ourselves
The waters of absolution.

We reach to grasp the glories of this world
We pluck the grapes of wrath
We fight for possession of everything
That is of flesh and blood
In the midst of the fight
He is still behind us
Disdaining his consistency
Of never ending pursuit.

When will we stop running away from Him?
Haven’t we reached the goals
To self-possession
And complimenting ego?

The knights do not run away from God
They walk side by side with Christ
Absorbed in the pursuit of His Example
The Knights can offer nothing
But the gift of his sins to Christ
And the Knights wins thereby
The Love of Christ!

Taking care of your nails


* I decided to make random posts in this blog more often just to make it updated and active. 🙂

Filipinos have this bad habit of  nail biting whenever in face of boredom or when we feel anxious about something. It is very common habit of humans. Nails are actually more fragile than skin so we must know how to take care of it. Here are some tips that I think will help you in taking care of your nails. The following Do’s and Dont’s are based on my own knowledge and experience. If you have any corrections or other advice don’t hesitate to comment it here. 🙂


  1. File your nails whenever needed.
  2. Use a sharp nail cutter in cutting it.
  3. Wash your hands including your nails.
  4. Only use a nail polish that is in good condition.
  5. Remove the nail polish gently with a cotton.
  6. Only get a nail art in a trusted salon or manicurist.
  7. Soak your nails in lemon juice to make it healthy and clean.
  8. Soak your nails in vinegar before adding your nail polish to make it last longer.
  9. File nails starting from its sides to the center.

You ask me how much I Love You


By Benito F. Reyes

You ask me how much I love you,
Ah, lovely inquisitive lips!
You would want to fathom the ocean
And scale the infinite blue above us.

Shall I count the sands on the seashore,
Or pick the numberless stars of heaven
Like some sweet woodland blossoms?

Ask the bold eagle of the air
If he could soar the ends of the distance,
Or the worm of the ground if it could crawl
Down to the very core of the earth.

And you ask me how much I love you,
Ah lovely inquisitive lips!
You would want to fathom the ocean
And scale the infinitive blue above us.

Read! read the answer in my eyes
And in the quiverless muteness of my lips.
For there are things that are voiceless
And would be told only in the silence!


*I love this poem. Very deep. 🙂

Where is My May?


by Fernando Ma. Guerrero

My happy days have passed away.
The hills and woods have lost their flower.
Where is my May?
Where are its sweet and charming hours?
Cheer me, my star, and give me light,
To see at least a pleasant way,
Show me your eyes so fair and bright
To find my way.
With thoughts of care I bend my head,
Where is my May?
I am alone, I eat my bread
Away from you, so far away.

Philippine National Anthem


written by Jose Palma

Land of the morning
Child of the sun returning
With fervor burning
Thee do our souls adore.

Land dear and holy
Cradle of noble heroes,
Ne’er shall invaders
Trample thy sacred shore.

Ever within thy skies and through thy clouds
And o’er the hills and seas
Do we behold the radiance, feel the throb, of glorious liberty.

Thy banner dear to all our hearts
Its sun and stars alight –
Oh, never shall its shining filled
Be dimmed by tyrant’s might!

Beautiful and land of love, O land of light,
In thine embrace ’tis rapture to lie,
But it is glory ever, when thou art wronged,
For us thy sons, to suffer and die.
