My room, which is in our school's condominium is miles away from home. All alone, I stay in this beautiful room which has one glass window and two sliding glass doors . On weekends, especially Sundays, it is so quiet here and peaceful. Neighbors are few, their doors are closed and many of them go back home. At first, melancholy was killing me. Finally, I've found some good diversions; which had extricated this feeling. In tandem with my household chores is sitting here in a balcony where a very fantastic view I see! Overlooking here are swimming pool, manmade lake, the flying birds and squirrels running and swaying on the branches of those tall green trees. So, I really find this balcony a perfect place to stay while silence engulfs me. In here, I play piano and paint; then, conglomerations of feelings I have as I write my poetry.
In Your Heart
The tall green trees are beckoning,
They can sense what I feel;
Those squirrels which make sounds and grin,
They've secrets to reveal .
Silence will never make you sad,
It refreshes your mind;
You can enhance your skills and pray,
In your heart, you can find.
