To (Be) Inspire(d) – Topic for Week# 33: Inspire / Inspiration

Whenever I encounter writer’s block

I’d immerse myself in this happy world

Rather than watch the time flies at my clock

A kaleidoscope that is turned and swirled


I take inspiration in things I see

Be motivated by people I know

To whatever, whoever I might be

Everything is not for a circus show


Inspiration comes in the form of goals

Or situations that stir emotions

Or views and thoughts that flow from kindred souls

Anything that calls and commands actions


So if you will ask, “What do you aspire?”

I long to be inspired and to inspire

Fan Fiction – Topic for Week#32: Magic

If life is full of magic and potions

Will it create a world full of mystique?

The use of sparks, fireworks and explosions

Orcs, elves and fairies of diff’rent physique


Will you depend your life on magic cards?

Or see the future on a crystal ball?

Some old tricks made by witches and wizards

Enchanted forest where trees are so tall


Are these things happening all in my head?

Curious explorations made by the mind

Stories of fiction while I lie on bed

Works of wonder in troves that you will find


Real or not, sometimes it’s good to believe

But in the present is where we should live

Like Water – Topic for Week#31: Water

Water cools you down

From the heat and dry weather

It refreshes you


Take the water spring

It gives  life and nourishment

Vitality sings

Its fluidity

Capable of taking form

Whatever shape, size


Live and co-exist

With diff’rent people around

Dealing with others


Off to the distant

Sailing away to nowhere

Where I stay afloat


It’s an element

A spring that breaks this dry land

It quenches one’s thirst


Still waters run deep

Please let me know what you think

A glimpse in your mind


Water flows the earth

A resource that’s getting scarce

Not unless we learn

Fashion Illustration 5.0

Pardon for the second strokes as my pen is giving up on me.

This is a break from the flowy dresses that I’ve previously sketched as it embraces a woman’s curves in all the right places.

I’m thinking of jersey material in two to three tones.

Basketball – Topic for Week#30: UAAP / School Pride


Life is a game of basketball
It makes you play in offense and defense
You win everything or nothing at all
When situations call for common sense

Enough with the metaphorical theme
And live reality in quick reset
The cheers you are rooting for the dream team
Some grand expectations that should be met

The goal is to forfeit the five-peat drive
A battle between eagles and tigers
And never fall prey to take plunge and dive
A big and loud roar from all the members

Whichever team emerges as champions
Salute for rising over the legions

I’m Falling -Topic for Week#29: Autumn / Fall

Like the leaves of the autumn season fall
I am trying to search for some meaning
As I stare deep into your naked soul
I’ll be able to see through this feeling

By confessing my love with only you
Are you going to be there to catch me?
You must know that what I do feel is true
I guess loving you isn’t that easy

When the last leaf fades in the horizon
Extinguishing all effort and all hope
Accuse me then for a crime of treason
Cutting positivity in this rope
With the green color of hope that’s waiting
Seasons change, so do love that is freeing
