Tranquility Is What I Need, A Poem
Waking at the early morning sun
I can hear the sounds
Of the cock fighters greeting the day
With annoying kikiriki.
A loud music played at the right
Loud firecrackers at the left
What should I say
That's how our neighbors greet the day.
Hearing the blast sound of the firecrackers
Angus running around
Into our bed he jumped
Seeking asylum with a scared big eyes.
O My, O My!
Poor little Angus
How will it be when Christmas day comes?
With those firecrackers
Flying here and everywhere.
What shall I do?
Shall I put ear plugs on his ears?
Just the way I do for myself
Or play Ramstein music in the stereo
Just like my hubby does?
Sitting on the porch at night
With a moonlight at the sky
Closing my eyes
Dreaming of a place
Thousands miles away.
Peace, Quiet, Serenity
Where are you?
Tranquility I need you
Serenity, I need a holiday.
Note: Christmas starts in the Philippines on September and so are the noise of the firecrackers.
5 Years in the Philippines
It has been 5 years since I have written this poem about Angus experiencing the loudness of the neighborhood in the Philippines. As of now (Aug. 10, 2016), Angus has acclimatized being here in his adopted country. He has not return to Germany again in fear that we would lose him in between our flights. Angus knows how to bark now, thinking that this is the way his dog friends could show their present to the other dogs. Being our lovely dog, he is treated like a prince who is allowed to stay inside our house and is allowed to jump on our laps. Angus is still our beloved pet. Thanks God he is feeling well in this warm country Philippines.
