One Heart at a Time

can an empty plate be a gift to the young mouths and empty stomachs waiting for elusive food? can a broken doll’s remaining head pacify an orphan after a destructive bomb snatched her parents? can an old, tattered blanket warm up a homeless sleeping naked under the frozen rain? can my hands and yours, can my […]

Fading Photograph

i stumbled upon my five-year-old smile pasted on a fading photograph. it was just me and my sister. she was crying. i was clapping. (mean me?). my small mouth was wide open, wide enough to show the three blank, toothless-gaps. while my sister, a year younger, was red in her wailing feat. looking at the once […]

Crossing Continents

we agreed to dig and dig, down under where the worms and seeds sleep and sleep. for at the middle of this continental-crossing tunnel, we promise to fin’lly meet. let’s say pardon to the roots our shovels will step on. let’s say bye to the above earth we’ll forget as we move on. for we […]

The Picnic

after more than a decade of virtual hugs and late night chats, the four girlfriends have finally met again for a summer picnic. two married, one engaged, one still single, they’ve bonded because of one common denominator: a guy they played love with. a nerd from college who’s known for his ragged blue jeans and an old-day-smelling shirt. under the hot sun with […]

Buried Deep
