Before October 30

30 before oct30-horz

‘And so the little prince tamed the fox. And when the hour of his departure drew near, “Ah,” said the fox, “I shall cry.”

“It is your own fault,” said the little prince. “I never wished you any sort of harm, but you wanted me to tame you.”

“Yes, that is so,”  said the fox.

“But now you are  going to cry!” said the little prince.

“Yes, that is so,”  said the fox.

“Then it has done you no good!”

“It has done me good,” said the fox, “because of the colour of the wheat fields.”’ – from The Little Prince

Hello! Thank you for dropping by! :)

I created this page as a birthday gift for my best friend who is currently very far away from me physically (he’s on the other side of the planet!). I am happy for the great opportunity that came his way, but somehow I realized that it feels more comforting to know that your friend is just somewhere in your home country than to know that he is in another continent! I became so sad when he left that one night, on September 30, I turned on the radio to listen to BBC 3 (we both love classical music), and I was shocked and amazed at the same time because it was like the universe was reminding me even more of him- Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue was playing. It was one of his favorite classical pieces. I smiled, but suddenly tears came trickling down my cheeks. Mababaw lang talaga ang luha ko (defensive?). :P

Between my best friend and I, I am more of a writer and he is the speaker. Thus, I couldn’t think of a better way to express my birthday greeting than through writing, specifically in the form of my favorite poetry- the haiku.  So I wrote a poem everyday, thirty days before his birthday. I hope that he will like this simple gift. And I hope you’ll like it too! :)

Here’s a simple gift;
I hope that it finds you well.
I miss you, my friend!

I wrote something wrong;
I will never outgrow you;
Will you believe me?

Thinking about you;
I turned on the radio;
Gershwin was playing.
