Poems by Ade Caparas



poisonous arrows
coming from all directions
no one can avoid
but the chosen
would be saved!

i just pray bcoz poisonous arrows are mostly emotional!!!



life like nature is on motion
a bushfire an earthquake
floods tsunamis tornadoes
cold wind hot wind gentle wind
bursting like
volcano thunderstorm lightning
or romantic like the moon
making love like a sea wave
reaction to exposure is ‘man’!



gazing at nothing
an existential of nothingness
estoy a oscuras
deprived of light!

i desire something yet i know not
happy but sad
simply here calmly sitting
in grasp of dark interior of love!

(Here is my Pilipino perceptual translations)

Malayo ang tingin
Wala namang tinatanaw
Sa bawat sandali
Hinihimas ko ang dilim
bakit nga ba sinta
Puso ko’y may pangamba
Bakit bakit kaya sinta?
