A Tribute Message for Pentasi B Hyderabad

Pentasi B Hyderabad is the event of events, the ultimate of the penultimate, the prophecy taking shape, where the finest of the world poets gather as ambassadors of love and peace, in the sharing of cultures and visions towards a common vision, on the grand stage of Hyderabad in India.

The gathering of poets as the gathering of angels of peace and culture in an embracing atmosphere of love, guided by the vision that dawned on Doc Penpen Takipsilim and shared, even fueled with the great love overflowing from the heart and soul of another physician and fellow poet, Dr. Lanka SR Prasad .

This is the eighth continent, the mythical and mystical Lemuria regained.

ღ ॐ ☥☼★¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ + ◌ ∞ α

SELECTED POEMS

*********

We Are Parts

I will not, shall not, disturb your peace,
For I am here to confirm it,
To confirm what is within you,
What is within you that searches for form,
I am the promise I made in the beginning,
I am the end of that promise,
I look at you and I see myself,
My own duality so alive in you,
I have given you this moment,
So much as you have given me this moment,
We share that much, for what is mine
Belongs to you, and what is yours belongs to me,
We are parts of the same tree of existence,
The air I breathe belongs to you,
As also the air that enters your lungs belongs to me,
I will fill these spaces with the voice that speaks
As much as it searches for your voice within you,
Eternity begins the moment you start to see
That I am very much a part of you
And you a part of me,
There is no death in these words,
But life in the eternal moment,
When you give you are receiving
The gift you have given,
I will help you remember who you really are,
I shall tell you that a particular desert was once
An ocean teeming with life,
I shall tell you that particular mountain still holds
So much the echoes of your voice.

 

Rendezvous of Metaphors

Passing by the ocean murmurs a volcano
Heard by the heavens that drift along my eyes,
The borderless rhymes tame the safest maggot
Declaring a marriage by light,
And there riding the wind
The horsemen burning chapters,
Where texts shift from three to four dimensions
Escaping the route of punctuations.
There are many Decembers pooled
To protect the tracks of falling birds,
Adjectives conspiring with the verbs
In this historic lambskin of the tiger tree.

.

 

PRAYER

My prayer goes like this:
Grant me O God a heart
Strong to love one billion earthlings
Immortal lungs to smoke for eternity
That I may also be granted
A super sober mind so I may drink
Far beyond my regular fill
Wealth a-plenty limitless
That I may be granted
A sleepless night to finish writing
What I want to say in one lifetime

INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE TO PENTASI B WORLD POETRY AFRICA GHANA 2016

By Ed Cordevilla

.

Pentasi B has democratized the poetry art form from being a playground of only a few. Today poetry writing and appreciation have been elevated to a new level of shared meaning.

Doc Penpen Takipsilim has opened the gates to poetry regardless of race, education and status in life. It takes a strong-willed, innovative and yet very humble man to unite poets from different parts of the world for a common poetic vision.

Pentasi B Ghana 2016 is another milestone in world poetry in general and solidarity of universal poets in particular.

My greetings for everyone!

Mabuhay ang mga manunula at ang mga nagmamahal sa panulaan!

 

Pentasi B has democratized the poetry art form today.
