Published again

I just got word today that the final issue of the Country mouse, a poetry e-zine co-owned by my friend, Arlene , is now out. Guess who's in it. Moi!!!! Yup, I have five poems included in this issue. What's even great is that I have been promised that I shall be getting three copies of the printed issue.

Too bad, this is the final issue. The ezine held contests every issue and published the winners. This time, together with the winners, friends of Arlene were asked to submit poems for publication.

Incidentally, should you happen to view my poems, the picture of me was taken in Canada during my last visit there. There are things too good to be true. Never did I know that that would be the last time I would be with my friend.

In the meantime, you can read my poems here Tell me what you think.

batjay Thanks. However,m itis the other way around. You have already a book (which is successfully doing well, I might add) under your name while I am still struggling to come up with one. Well, who knows...

Bayi Thanks. I hope so. But I don't want to be a prophet unknown in his own land, mind you. hehehe

Congratulations, Tito Rolly! I like all of them but especially "she smiles when she sleeps". I also like the mention of Ms. Lawson in your short bio. You were blessed to have known someone like her.

Kailan kaya ako matuto ng poetry? :)

Vicky Thanks for the compliments. Yes, my poetry is just an easy read.

Bugsy Alam kong kayang-kaya mong gumawa nyan if you put your heart into it. You're a very good writer with a lot of heart - and that's all you need.

Newbie rides the bus...I can relate to that when I took my first bus in MN. At least I didn't have to walk 4 miles when I got off the wrong stop and it did not rain. Congratulations...truly a Man of Arts be it in canvass or parchment.

Rey A Confusing, right? That time I think I panicked. I shouldn't have and asked the driver instead. I guess I was too shy. Always have been.

Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
