Welcome to The Chronicle of Change

The Chronicle of Change is a collection of poetry written since the 1990s. As most of the poems are in hard copy, I will have to encode them one by one, so bear with me. I will be posting them as I go along.

The dates of posting are not necessarily the dates of creation.

I do not and never will claim that they are good, but if you find value in them, I thank you. You are most welcome to comment. I welcome both praise and criticism.

If for any reason you need to quote, lift excerpts, print, publish, or refer to the poems in any way, I would appreciate a note or an email, an acknowledgment of ownership, and an acknowledgment of the website. Intellectual property rights do apply.

Bagyo Bagyo Bantay Kabayo

Sa ilalim ng malambot kong kumot
may sumuot na maliit na hayop
sumipa sa diwa kong
himbing sa tulog
kumiliti sa talampakan kong bagot.
Ano itong bumulabog?
'Di pa kamo nagpapilit
nangulit nang nangulit
hanggang 'di na ko makabalik
sa pagkakaidlip.

Gising na!
Tanghali na!
Ang musa ng bagyo'y
kinakaon ka!

- written one stormy morning in 2000
