The Kiss
by Gustav Klimt
(1907-1908) "Short Story on aPainting of Gustav Klimt"
by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
(1976)They are kneeling upright on a flowered bed 
  He 
    has just caught her there 
                               and holds her still 
    Her gown 
                 has slipped down 
                                           off her shoulder 
He has an urgent hunger 
                      His dark head 
                                 bends to hers 
                                            hungrily 
And the woman the woman 
    turns her tangerine lips from his 
           one hand like the head of a dead swan 
                   draped down over 
                                                his heavy neck 
                        the fingers 
                            strangely crimped 
                                         tightly together 
        her other arm doubled up 
                     against her tight breast 
            her hand a languid claw…

Silid ni Riza Flores Martinez - Borja

1. Sa Aking Silid

Ramdam ko ang pait at pagmamalupit ng panahon sa akin. Sa tuwing ako ay lilisan palabas ng aking silid, may kahalong lungkot at ligaya tarak sa aking puso. Tila ako ay binalutan ng tinik sa dibdib.

Simula noong ako ay bata pa sa pagpasok ng aking silid may kaba at takot na laging umaamba sa paligid, parang usok na lumalaki.

Si Ama ay isang kilalang tao sa lipunan. Mataas ang tingin ng mga taga-bayan sa kanya, maging ang kanyang mga kakompetensya sa San Gabriel. Sa araw araw na ginawa ng Diyos, masaya ang mga taong dumadalaw sa aming bahay na lagging may pagdiriwang na nagaganap. Mahal na mahal si ama mga taga- San Gabriel. Mahal din ni Ama si Ina… at ako. Maraming tao ang natulungan ni Ama. Mahirarap man o mayaman, walang pinipiling tulungan. Maraming krimen din ang nalutas. Maliban lamang sa kaso dito sa aming bahay. Iyan ang lihim.

Sa aking silid, pinid ang durungawan. Ang mga ala-ala ng aking nakaraan ay hindi maungkat. Ayaw kong maungkat muli ang mga ala-ala ng …

Bolpen, Three Scary Stories in Filipino

2. Bolpen

Masarap mangarap, masarap mabuhay lalo na kung ang lahat ng iyong gusto sa buhay ay natutupad. Karangyaan, kayamanan, kasikatan yan ang pangarap ng lahat… at isa doon si Rosa. Si Rosa ay simpleng manunulat, may 2 anak at 6 na taon sa trabahong ito ngunit wala pa ding nangyayari sa buhay niya. Mahirap pa rin siya…at pawing lalong humihirap.

“Pesteng buhay ‘to! Kelan ba ko aangat sa estado kong ito?” ani ni Rosa. “Lagi na lang ganito, walang gustong tumanggap ng mga isinusulat ko? E napakagaling ko naman!”

“Ano ka ba Rosa? Maging matiyaga ka lang, may awa ang Diyos. Baka di pa dumadating ang tamang oras mo,” sagot ng kaibigan niyang si Leslie. “ Nga pala may opening sa darating na Biyernes sa may Ortigas, naghahanap sila ng mga writers para sa bago nilang ilalabas na libro, pwede ka doon. Bakit di mo subukan? Eto ang numero tawagan mo..”

“O sige, mapuntahan nga yan baka yan na yung matagal ko ng hinihintay na break!,” sagot ni Rosa.

“Oo…

GOD's Minute: A Story from Pastor Allen

AND HE TOOK THE CHILDREN IN HIS ARMS, PUT HIS HANDS  ON THEM AND BLESSED THEM.
                                 ( MARK 10:16 *NIV )

   Dear Rose,
        We often find that children do amuse us with their explanations.  Now as you know little children come up with some amazing explanations.  So today we will take a look at a message I have received from one of our Subscriber's titled: A Child's View of the Bible." 

       It is my hope that this will give you a smile in your heart, and a laugh on your face.  After all, it is said "Laughter is the best Medicine", especially for a Saturday Morning!

                          A CHILD'S VIEW OF THE BIBLE

A child was told to write a book report on the entire Bible.
This is amazing!!. I wonder how often we take for granted that children understand what we are teaching??? Through the eyes of a child here is the Children's Bible in a Nutshell.


In the beginning, which oc…

That Was How We've Been

For Wenzi and Riza
That was yesterday, I was a fire rock And you were the upthrust wind That was how we’ve been.
Everything trembled in our oasis Because we have to get there, And you -  I want you endless.
That was how we’ve been When I was young, And you were younger We carved caves and rocks Cut fields Crossed lakes We passed sun and moon Like smoke.
You grew up well. That was how we’ve been Raising your arms to God Kissing the earth, the wonders of life -
And like stars - Your eyes, 
Love and joy gleamed.
