In One Rainy Morning

(Summer’s kiss for Marilou)

In one rainy morning
as the fog drifts in solitude
and the melancholy mist paints the naked window pane
thoughts and remembrance
fill the silent field of birds without flight
that the eyes may see what is in yesterday.

In one rainy morning
songs echo in gentle refrains
while words and rhymes sweeten longings and goodbyes
holding hands with the ideal
and reciting poems of unspoken doubts
that the wounds may heal in rhetorical musings.

In one rainy morning
far deep into the mind’s darkest corners
sins unforgiven are buried that hope may survive
and life may have a chance,
and happiness can bloom.

In one rainy morning
the summer’s heat dreams of the fervent sun
in endless frolic of innocence lost
of undressed virgins sans guilt nor shame.

In one rainy morning
there is only you to provide warmth
even in your absence
and the pesky musts of day to day living
yet the night waits in delicious anticipation
and a smile breaks with untamed desire.

In one rainy morning
the grasses bathe with the flowers and the trees
in a symphony of growth and decay
highlighting God’s creation as only nature can
that man may pay reverence, even believe.

In one rainy morning
sleepy eyes will forget
then wake to the the day breaking
Thankful for what was
what is
and what will be.

In one rainy morning.


About danmeljim

Dan Jimenez was the Editor in Chief of The Corps Magazine from 1976 to 1977. After graduation, he never abandoned his ideas and continued writing. On October 1983, as a young Navy Lieutenant, he wrote an open letter addressed to Salvador Laurel who was then a leader of the opposition against President Marcos. It was published by almost all the dailies and earned for him the commendation of PMAAA, Inc. He immigrated to the US in 1986 but continued to write about the country of his birth. He has defended the Philippine Military Academy against claims of it being a Philippine Monetary Academy and a corrupt institution. Very recently, he posted commendation of Gen Bato de la Rosa and castigation of Senator Sonny Trillanes, which went viral. He continues to believe that "Ideas must reign supreme because personalities and individuals are as fleeting as the seasons." Always a plebe in his thinking, he will live by the adage: "The greatest failure is that never attempted."
