On Birthing Tales…

"After Hemingway" - Makati, 16 March 2015
“After Hemingway” – Makati, 16 March 2015

life is a state

of stories

within

stories:

a legion

of histories

aligned

intertwined

glorified

maligned.

 

beginnings beget

endings –

and vice-versa

one tale

reveals another;

like layer

upon layer

unravelling

dissolving

congealing

into something

new.

 

i take

pen to

paper;

keys to

my screen;

writing from

inspiration

imagination

delirium

truth –

a thousand

possibilities

myriad

pathways

born of

experience,

a need to

speak.

 

i sip

and scribble

song in my

ears

one more

tale

to tell.
