September

September

It has come. The weather shifts
magically from rain to dry
and fortunes trickle down our lives
like rolling stones.
A Khmer fashions his name
to Odom Rolex for auspicious times,
expansive as the stirrings of September.
My farmer neighbor rants through
his intoxication on a calm evening;
yet in the glare of sun or glaze of rain
he holds the earth in his firm hand
and mutters hope and desire.

There is something about September
that we feel movements
even beyond emotions and ideas;
a sense of raising the tempo of our dance
with life, catching exhilarations
from scents, scanning the sky
where a beautiful swan may come
soaring high.

  1. haha mike, pagbukas na pagbukas ko uli nito laking gulat ko na may nagkomento na. mga ilang oras pa lang kasi ang pagkasalang nito at nabagabag na ako sa mga pagbabagong kailangang gawin o ituwid. heto pumapalo muli ng rebisyon. palagay ko hindi pa ito buong-buo o kung sakali mang wala nang mahataw ang aking panunuri ay hahayaan ko na lang muna siya at bahalang magpasyang isa na siyang ganap na tula.

    sige sana mabasa ko rin ang iyong bersyon ng setyembre.
