August 2007 Update: Early last year I used Borget’s 5 Star Ratings Script and it worked great. But when my webhost upgraded to higher version of PHP, it doesn’t work anymore, I can’t figure out what went wrong. I even asked Borget’s help and he was so eager to help, but still I couldn’t make it work. Just recently I saw a WP-Ratings Plugin and decided to use it for my poems, submitted poems and inspirational pages.
It’s been a long time since I last composed a poem, the last one was Dear Jesus which I composed on August 2003.
After more than 3 years, I was able to write again, this time, the poem is for my Baby Sean. I don’t know when I started writing it but I was able to write a few lines. After few months I came across that unfinished poem again and decided to add few more lines, and so my latest poem God’s Gift was born.
I don’t know when will I be composing again. Perhaps after another three years? I hope not!
I started composing poems when I was in first year high school (1990). Some of the poems are based on my personal experiences, while others are based on my friends’ stories.
Crush ng Bayan is the first poem I’ve written. Just a Dream is the first to be published in our high school newspaper, The GuidePost, where I was a Literary and a Feature writer.
Cyber Love and My Destiny are the poems I composed for my husband, it’s all about our love story… obviously it’s my favorite! 🙂
There are times that I can easily compose a poem, maybe it depends on my mood, or it depends on the “topic”. It would take me 1 hour or less to create a poem, but sometimes it also take me months to create one especially if I am running out of rhyming words in the topic. There are some poems that I’ve started but I can’t finish maybe because of lack of interest or something.
