"Shimmer" - Makati, 2011
“Shimmer” – Makati, 2011

in the

midst

of the

rushing

callous

don’t-carish

world

that we

live in,

in the

middle

of the

tedious

wearying

humdrum

existence

that is

our lives,

you

are my

magic.

 

the spark

that ignites

the conflagration

of my

thoughts,

the one

who stokes

the fires

of creation,

living catalyst

who changes

everything.

 

tough love

fond song

silly quip

casting

unseen spells

over the

unsuspecting.

 

wizard in

plain sight

working his

wizardry

despite the

mundanity

surrounding him.

 

you are

to me

cloudy days

cold breezes

coffee cups

cupcakes

calmness

in the

face of

chaos:

my life’s

magic

my all

in all

my truth.
