“a tiny DOT” – Ade Caparas

“a tiny DOT”


‘Wars, factions, and fighting,’ said Socrates as he looked forward from his last hour, ‘have no other origin than this same body and its lusts … We must set the soul free from it; we must behold things as they are. And having thus got rid of the foolishness of the body, we shall be pure and hold converse with the pure, and shall in our own selves have complete knowledge of the Incorruptible which is, I take it, no other than the very truth. (Socrates)

‘ my true me… my reality  keeps evolving… it is upon my death that people will know my true me… my reality!’_adecaparas orosa manilah


a tiny dot

i fought i won…

i am born

with a purpose

i search i act

a mango fruit

if sweet is eaten  enjoyed

if sour bitter

thrown to

garbage bin

a reality!

Existentialism Is a Humanism: ‘Il n’y a de réalité  que dans l’action. (There is no reality except in action.)’ it is how i have enhanced myself all through the years.. will be my reality as i end my life journey!’_ ade caparas orosa manilah



in darkness,

“a space of repugnance“

Cold sunday morning; i woke up so late and my bed being surrounded by mirrors all over, sides and ceiling… i felt nauseated, to see  my waking portrait! _a sense of repugnance engulfs me, this  insignificant moment of nothing. _ahhhhhhhhh! I abhor this grandeur setting, feeding my narcissistic whims: a glutton on my own bareness of ugliness.

All of a sudden, i am pricked within longings… the duet-songs of the Mayas, the alternate croaks of wild giant frogs, the humming wind carrying the playful sways of bamboo trees, yessssss, my mountain house that overlooks the grand Laguna Lake.

Laughter wealth power fame… i get so drunk… the dizzying   merry-go-round, suddenly the northern winds changed course; total black clouds loom; my laughter transform to tears;  and i limp to face the frightening darkness!’


i can’t see no more

fears and tears

have taken over

every single step

i make is a stumble!

can’t do nothing

my breath seems lost


slowly a tiny dot

of light expanded

discover your beauty!

my teary blurry eyes

sense back the gentle breeze

herbs and flowers hummingbirds

the taste of joy… i found your lips!


my lov

how in the world

did i lose my mind

busied moi with useless noises

bundles of loud colours

cheap perfumes

oh… abhorring abyss, i surface!
