Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

A Traveler’s Soliloquy (Part V)

note: please read the prologue and parts I to IV first.



~ Song Of The Waif ~



Like a desolate soul, a lonely waif,

I wait for you on the cliff by the sea.

May the angels of the roads keep you safe,

Come fast my beloved and rescue me.



Boracay Island, Philippines. Summer, 2006

A 7-piece poetry series I wrote during my last summer vacation in Boracay Island, Philippines before I left the country in 2006.

And when I think of it, I guess it is true that people always arrive at the right moment at the right place where someone awaits them. From the book, The Pilgrimage, by Paulo Coelho.

    I like to think of myself as a waif. The flower in this poem is; so I am. But in the end, I found myself.

    I wish you well ~ Jeques

  6. jeques, the 7-part soliloquy has leave me asking for more of your soothing words and vivid imageries. you are at your best.

    you said it right when you want something new in your life, you need to unload some past behind. and this poem has powerfully expressed that emotion.

    a salute to this great work! perfect!
