Sonnet's Haven

Image I love


I’ve been tagged by brainteaser and gmacomics.

I’m not a photographer but I’m a fan of photography and I admire people who can capture the realness of an event, a facial expression, an occasion with just a click of their cameras. This tag is a celebration of photography and poetry’s marriage and I’m glad I’m part of the gathering.

Here’s the rule:

1. Write a poem or an inspiring line based on a photo of your choice. This photo can be your own, or someone else’s. (If the picture is not yours, please ask permission from the owner when you post it, or better yet, provide only the link to the picture that inspired you, without posting it.)
2. Your poem or inspiring line may be of any length, and any genre. It can be humorous, sentimental, heart-warming, whatever. You may write in Ilokano, English or Filipino.
3. Post your inspiring line in your blog and in the comment section of this page (or just a link to your post so we could go and check it there). For poetry submissions, please indicate if you wish your piece to be posted in Bilingual Pen as an article submission.

4. The goal of this game is to get us to write, and express our thoughts and emotions.

High with Sonnet

It’s a line of truth or lie

A notion of the youth

Who think they speak of love, of life

Yet live the moment with rules

Season, theme, space and time

All these seem relevant

In a fast-paced reality

Even on times that I write lit

Then the sky whispers

An angel is coming

As told in many a song

She’s heaven’s precious gift

In an instant the moment changed

And so did the word and the world

Who’s Shakespeare to call Sonnet a poem?

I wonder who coined it from a song

Sonnet is my cotton candy

My solemn hymn in the night

Prayer answered by my beloved God

My life, my heart, all that I am

I’m now tagging Pelicarol, Lambing, Lenski, Potsquared, Kengkay, Vhincent, and Raft3r.

  1. ako noong twing maririnig ko ang kantang IKAW. Ganyan ang feeling ko. Kahit na alam ko na ginawa yun kanta hindi para sa isang bata. Pero yun linya. ANG LAHAT NG AKING GALAW ANG SANHI AT IKAW. KULANG ANG MAGPAKAILANGAN PA MAN ANG IBIGIN KO AY IKAW.

    Wala ba ang bebe ko nun, excited na ko, nasa tiyan ko pa lang siya yun na palagi ang gusto kung kanta. Kaya ngaun tuwing kakantahin yun. Sinasabi rin sakin ni anak ko na gusto daw niya yun kanta for me.

    Tapos mga picture perfect pa na kadalasan hindi sinasadya ang mamaganda namin kuha ang nakita ko sa wallet niya. Tinatago ng bagets ko.

    Sarap sarap ng feeling.
