Miag-ao Church, Iloilo, Philippines 

The church, according to this dainty wildness

Because everything, everyone has a facade

And of course, a side or many sides

Because the sides and the fronts sometimes don’t coincide with the inner self


Because the inner self can’t bottle everything up, we need a door, a window.

Janiuay Spanish Era Cemetery, Iloilo. How to mower the graveyard? Make sure the swirling machine does not hit the sleeping gravestone.

Because lines scar the sky, the blueness of the sky

How to paint a tombstone? Trace the curveness of R.

Because there is uniformity in shadows: black

Because there is happiness atop the mounting grave.

Museum Iloilo, Iloilo. Because we need art.

Because the self, distorted, can be spotted somewhere

Because they line up, like obedient grade schoolers

Because there is a smile in waiting-about-to-end.

To Guimaras. Because leavings are beginnings.

And, yes, you might want to help me raise fund for my camera. Hope is free, I might as well use it. Any amount is greatly appreciated. What happened? Read here.

Quotecard: Tuburan Pantalan

Tuburan Port, Tuburan, Cebu, Philippines   It’s funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think, ‘I want to go home.’ But then you come home, and of course it’s not the same. You can’t live with it, you can’t live away from it. And it […]
