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.

Matagal din kitang ipinagtiis
Banye-banyerang mga salita ang
Pinaalpas sa ihip ng mga gabing
Walang pasintabi
Kung liliparin
Ng hangin ang mga bugso
At kadyot ng damdamin
Tangay-tangay ang katinuang
Na parang tubig sa mga kamay.
At ngayong kaharap na kita
Sa katulad na gabi
Ipagkakanulo ang himbing
Ng tulog
Upang dinggin ang mga umuudyok
Na kulog.

- written one stormy morning in 2000
