pinoy poets plugging! 

Pinoypoets’ Anniversary Night at Conspiracy

The pinoy poets, a group of young writers (uhm I am a member,too, you know) will be having its first anniversary. These are young, energetic, creative group of people who share their passion for poetry and seriously working hard to hone their craft. I am such a lucky guy to have been accepted to this group. If you care to join us in our revelry, read on!


If you’re a writer, a poet, an artist or simply a lover of literature, better block off Tuesday, June 28 on your social calendar. Pinoypoets (PP), an online community of literary enthusiasts, will be holding its first anniversary bash at Conspiracy Bar in Quezon City.

The event, dubbed PP ‘to!(The Pinoypoets’ First Anniversary), promises to be an evening filled with laughter, music, and of course, excellent poetry. Prominent social, academic, and literary figures Makati Rep. Teddy Locsin Jr, Conchitina Cruz, Vin and Kris Dancel, Noel Del Prado, Joyce Burton Titular, Enrico John Torralba, Hannah Romawac, Roli Inocencio, Monica Llamas and Gary Granada, are but a few of our guest readers.

The celebration will also be highlighted by performances from G-Strings, 10kpp, Rubberband, Johnoy Danao of Bridge, Paramita, and Hanna Romawac of Session Road.

Pinoypoets is a community of poets, writers and literary enthusiasts who share their works, thoughts and insights on poetry. Formed by less than 50 members in June 2004, Pinoypoets has grown to 250 members based in different regions of the archipelago--and even abroad.

Its primary objective is to facilitate a creative forum and enrich its members' knowledge and craft. Michael Coroza, Edgar Samar, Santiago Villafania, Louie John Sanchez, Eileen Tabios, Bino Realuyo and Jema Pamintuan, some of the most respected names in Philippine poetry today, are the group’s consultants and critics.

PP ‘to!(The Pinoypoets’ First Anniversary), will start at 8 p.m. Admission is FREE! For more information, please get in touch with Rhodge Fernandez (721 7229, seventhgecko@yahoo.com), Kathline Tolosa (09175777128, kathline_anne@yahoo.com) or Romel Samson (09278470212, risingphoenix101@yahoo.com)

Two Poems 

I have Dwayne of pinoy poets to thank for giving me valuable feedback on these two poems and made it decent. I have not written any poem for some time not knowing I can get rusty right away. The second one is my attempt at erotica. I know, it's far from par yet. i'm working on it... Anyway...


like sunlight
crawling into the night,
you inch your way into dawn
to penetrate my window

doesn't matter if the windows are closed
or the curtains are shut
you will be there.
It's like opening them at noon,
and blinding me with its fiery gaze

You are the water leaking through a beaver's dam
quietly filling the spaces
until it caves in.
with no place else to go, even
a beaver drowns

you have taken two of my friends
now you want to take
another one.
you work silently but surely
filling my heart with pain

Give me a Night

as the sweetest flower,
your breath mimics a gentle breeze,
dampening my branch with dew.

How I long to touch
the softness of your bosom
as I part your gossamer gown,
Reveals breasts whiter than snow
but hotter than the sun.
Supple nipples rise to attention
with every touch, soft
circling motions of my
trembling hands.

your hair flows smoothly,
shining on a moonlit night.
your flawless teeth scrape my skin,
as you measure its length
. . .contemplating.
Holding it firmly,
with your nimble fingers

Lilith, listen to my plea,
give me a night and we'll make
Diana blush, then
green with envy
until she hides.

If it is sin to hold you like this,
let me wallow in its arms.
If this would mean death,
let me die a thousand
times more.
