Kiss the Rain

23 February 2013

Time off from the chaotic rhythm of the office
Exhausted from a long day’s work
Never mind, for tomorrow is a chance to peep
In the blue haze of early morning

Another day, another chance
Of a wishful thinking of the seventh heaven
That a Godsend may soon fall to earth in drops
To break the silence of the morning

I need the rain to accompany me
And lull me into a deep therapeutic easiness
Unbosoming the thoughts of turning back time
Between playful stomping and dancing on water puddles

The cloud drifted on to reveal a blinding cloudburst
The first sign of a light drizzle gave hope
Therefore, I looked upward to the gossamer layers of clouds
As railing rains trickle down my face
I opened my parched lips and closed my eyes to kiss the rain

The Little Prince of Our House

The Little Prince of Our House
(Tritina Poetry Form)

By: Noel N. Villarosa

Our excitement to have you in our life
That you deserve a regal retreat inside our house
This once dark room spruced up with chic bedroom

With soaring peaked ceiling overlooking your bedroom
The wall with trompe l’oeil effect that’s how you furbished our life
Fixed window overlooking vast vistas of the modern house

Dark mahogany furniture lined up inside the house
A forest-green bed crown to lay down on your bedroom
In vibrant hues, you have transformed our life

How blessed our life that within our house, we built a bedroom for our little prince

The Longest Day of Waiting

(Prose Poetry)
By: Noel N. Villarosa

Life on earth is a large platform where people show the highness or lowness of spirits of their lives. A queue in time bargaining for the much-awaited satisfaction in life.  Just like in litigation, we all undergone proceedings in order to determine our unalienable rights --from conception to birth--judgment has been made whether to preserve or to abandon a life. Is it the longest day of waiting to be born on this earth? Not until we begin to crawl and cry weakly; run and stumble many times; stutter while trying to express the feelings, and get the needed fostering from parents that we realize all these as part of the stages of life. Is it the longest day of molding life inside the house? Not until we are brought up learning under the doctrine of the school to get further knowledge that we see a brighter future.  We struggled hard to the academic discussion--from shapes, numbers, reading and into writing, we learned and been guided coherently. Is it the longest day of waiting for commendation? Not until we stepped out from our alma mater and into the challenging workforce that we feel the test of life.  We faced many setbacks and blows but determination made us choose to get on it until we gradually climb into the targeted rank. Is it the longest day of the tiring effort to make a living? Not until we retired from work and have seen the fruits of our effort that we begin to feel good enough. As growing old is inevitable, it is about changes in yourself and life. Eyesight begins to dim and hearing fails, agility has turned into weakness, and health deteriorated until you sigh, “It is time to lay all worries to rest and maneuver myself into an open fluorescent green field.”

For all we know, it is still not the end of waiting until we see our next generation coming into being and deserving to be treated as such.

Love Grows In Many Special Ways


By: Noel N. Villarosa
February 4, 2013

Remembering our first movie date
We were seated among other throngs of lovers
All eyes to the movie, capturing romantic scenes
That day we learned to free ourselves from fears to love again

It was a feeling of rejuvenation
For two souls openly sharing their thoughts and emotions
Then we just found ourselves hanging around comfortably
I just found my soul mate with a divine guidance

We just do what feels right for us
A mutual feeling of almost a part of each other in some way
Time slows down as our heart beat faster
To savor the moments of being together

The places, the people and the occasions
That we came across in our lives
Will somehow speak into our eyes
We really are meant for each other

While our love story is so simple not glamorous
I have all the reasons to spend my life
Watching in riveting desire how our love grows
With a smile on our face, saying we’ll never be separated

As the ‘Notting Hill’ movie will keep playing in our mind
A sweet musing of the whole story
Made us realize that love grows
In many special ways
