Essence of Love / Poem Duet by Elizabeth Esguerra Castillo & Shahid Abbas

Poem Duet by Elizabeth Esguerra Castillo & Shahid Abbas
Essence of Love
Oh my stunner adorable Dimple girl , you are my heart
Your innocence, simplicity, and shyness alluring me from the start.
Today the weather can be likened to you , every drop of water is mixing in my sink as your faithfulness
Cool breeze is embracing me like your soft hands,
I’m to stay in it because
Your call to prayer on the roof in such good weather for me.
Cool air and these tiny drops,
I am so enchanted that you do not feel as good as you do today,
Sweet attraction l have for you
Whenever I talk to you, I feel calm, it is as if I have gone to a deep wound
Your innocence, loyalty and this love make me your lover,
When you smile, it is as if nature accepted my prayer and blessed me with a great joy.
Shahid Abbas
How does one capture your heart
When he’s miles away
And you’re oceans and oceans apart?
Your strong stare, those eyes that care
Enough to melt me down
For the love you professed I seem to get drown.
Was it fate that brought you here?
The one written in the stars for me,
For even when circumstances draw us apart
We cannot defy destiny.
I feel your love, a love so true
Must be an angel who brought me to you,
Hold me in your strong arms
Protect me from all harm
Be my vessel amidst the madness of the world,
Let this love of a lifetime unfold.
I get lost deep in your eyes,
Penetrating my soul
Relying on your promises
To never part and to just
follow my heart.
The wind carries your sweet caress,
Brushing my cheeks
Whispering words of love
A love so strong like the mighty current,
Like an ocean overflowing.

《未知的落幕》/ Sue Zhu

Sue Zhu   《未知的落幕》 君临天下 以万物之灵的名义 广阔的森林牧场,雪山冰川 被零星的火种点燃,大可燎原,大可洪水覆舟 地球百科,字里行间加重了笔墨 河流改道,山峦灭顶,草原翻啃,湿地排干 曾经被一一清点过的 黄花秋海棠,智利檀香,圣赫勒拿橄榄树,马德拉的白蝴蝶 还有黑犀牛,蜜旋木雀,毛里求斯蚺蛇,比利牛斯山羊,以及 加利福尼亚的提可巴鳉,云雾森林里的金蟾蜍 而今,或遭灭门之灾,或正在逃亡的路上 酸雨逐风,助燃火势,硝烟愈演愈烈 辅佐着智人无节制地开发,克隆,繁衍 抛开小行星撞击的概率,生境,一步步 趋向紧缩,破碎,甚至丧失 谁该为“第六次洗牌”* 的预言的到来买单 “每一条新辟的路,为蝴蝶的基因交流增加了难以逾越的屏障” 伐倒的树,欠收的香蕉,让红疣猴,小嘴狐猴们消声匿迹 欲望的枪口,频频举起,弹无虚发 我们的近亲也难逃此劫 盖亚*的哀伤痛心切骨,落幕之日,我们 还能找回它们吗,我们 还可以找得到我们自己吗? 盖亚:古希腊神话中的大地女神。 第六次洗牌:科学界认为,人类的不节制活动,让物种灭绝速度比自然灭绝速度加快了1000倍,地球正在进入第六次物种大灭绝时期。
