READ HERE Turning the pages of memory‚Äôs book,I recall those moments that could not last,Long shrouded within the fog of the past;I wonder: what would I find should I look?A word aptly spoken or careless thought?Time well-spent and valued or thrown away?Surrounded by love or abandoned one day?My heart well-guarded or easily bought?Then with a… Continue reading [writing][poetry] Sonnet VI

literature, nonfiction, quote

“All of us are engaged daily with works of art, even if we are neither professionals nor amateur artists. We read books, we listen to music, we look at posters, we admire flower arrangements. Art, as I am using the word, does not include just “high art”, that is, painting, sculpture, poetry, classical music, but also the more popular expressions – the novel, the theatre, the cinema, popular music and rock.

Adulterous and wretched, I grope. I am the one who put Him on the Cross. The scoffer who deserves the… Continue reading [posting][poetry] Redeemed

[posting][poetry] Sonnet I

These chains of thought which bind my heart to thine (Yes, I am captive of your Siren's heart) Hold bitter dreams of love ne'er to be mine And broken hopes of two lives kept apart. This slavery of soul, unbeknownst to you, Restricts my path and turns my eyes away From all that lies before… Continue reading [posting][poetry] Sonnet I
