Petals in the Wind

By: Noel N. Villarosa

As the morning breeze whispers in the sky

Blowing fragile petals and leaving the tree

For someone lounging underneath would sigh,

“Petals in the wind take me into a thrill”

A flimsy looking old man

Pensive for the good old days

Would wish to intertwine

With petals in the wind drifting astray

A girl in search for a long lost love

Still hoping for a spark in her young heart

Graciously singing silent notes to prove

Those petals in the wind grappling with songs never heard

When love dies and silence grows so profound

While the wind stop breathing

Will gather those in vain searching

To scatter and to find rest into the ground

Like petals spaced apart from the wind

Stardust Wink
By: Noel N. Villarosa

In louver I waited ‘til night confined the sky
Incandescent stardust once made me starry-eyed
That tempestuous evening hid the Milky Way
Nocturnal beetle mimicked pristine light that I prayed

In a flick, my desire to see you restrained by distance
I just clutched to stargazing to show me moments of you
An interlude to make feelings in alliance
Where kisses and hugs are free to view

Lurking in the sky, time held its breath
As my eyes glowed luxurious in our love affairs
My heart sang louder to clamor the light in stealth
In flower’s scent enchanted time as I stared

For I knew evening panorama would soon disappear
Last moment I spoke lover’s prayer so powerful
As stars tried filching a moment to appear so near
Came pouring stardust in my longing to reunite with your soul

A Tribute Poem in memory of the New Town Connecticut Shooting victims

To Bring Clock Immobilized For A Moment

Whilst time is not in our hands to bear
Whispering hushed sound, steals someone’s life
A lithe gunman brandishing gun to err
If only I hold time, I’ll stop the strife

The ephemeral laughter of childhood
Bequeath memories to posterity
Be an advocate for gun ban, I would
Parents felt like dry leaf in an eddy

I speak of my thoughts, hopes, and prayers
A glimpse of dulcet smile one last chance
Felicity in heaven cloaked the fears
For these children once have a dalliance

One by one, far and near, gunshot broke out
In silence, their presence you can’t live without
