Precy Brozas Varilla

(083088 / Philippines)


An epitome of true beauty
That’s what you are to me
Greater than hordes of queens
Brighter than the blinding sunbeams

YOU are….
The cold rain
Pouring abundantly in a parch-dry land
A precious gem
Glittering amidst the sun-kissed sand

YOU are….
The morning dew
Generously quenching nature's thirst
The silver moon
Graciously illuminating the world’s darkness

YOU are….
The sweet song
Lulling a child into peaceful slumber
The perfect melody
Banishing the perils of a heart’s somber

YOU are….
A radiant rainbow
Rising above the horizon after a tempest
A flamboyant butterfly
Gliding and sprinkling love in the garden of roses

YOU are….
A gentle zephyr
Kissing away the pain, conveying the boons
A lovely angel
Shining like a pearl in a desert’s mighty sand dunes

YOU are…
The cosmic force
Holding my universe together, spinning my world forever
The morning star
Persisting through the light of day, your brilliance fades never.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
