Kung Ako'y Malimot Mo

[ni Jay Pascual, pagsasalin mula sa salin ng tula ni Pablo Neruda "If You Forget Me"]
Nais kong matanto mo
ang isang bagay.

Batid mo na ito:
kung aking tanawin
ang maningning na buwan, sa matikas na sanga
ng taglagas sa aking durungawan,
at kung aking haplusin
ang ningas ng apoy
at dagitab ng baga
sa kuluntoy na balat ng kahoy,
ang lahat ay nag-aanyaya sa akin tungo sa iyo
tila ba lahat ng nilalang,
samyo, liwanag, asero,
ay mga munting bangkang
naglalayag
tungo sa iyong mga pulong nakaantabay sa akin.

At kung,
unti-unti'y limutin mo akong mahalin,
ika'y unti-unti ko ring lilimuting ibigin.

Sakaling
limutin mo ako
huwag na akong hagapin,
pagkat ika'y nalimot ko na rin.

Kung sa iyong masalimuot na pag-iisip,
na ang pagaspas ng hangi'y
humahalik sa kaibuturan ng aking buhay,
at kung maisipan mo'ng
lisanin ako sa dalampasigang
kinaluklukan ng ak…

Valencia at Midnight

It's midnight once again here at Valencia City, Bukidnon. I just finished writing 12 500-words articles about some dumb custom bobbleheads. Well, who cares about these bobbleheads anyway? The search engines maybe? The owner of the site who sells bobbleheads, definitely.  Well, enough of bobbleheads. It has filled my brains with lots of bubbles anyway and I want to exorcise them out of my system.Back to Valencia. This is the city I hope I can call my home.  It is a thriving city in a most provincial way.  Public utility services are bad but the environment can make up for it.It is cool here, and the crickets are really lovely. They will entertain you all night.  This is a city that retained its provincial beauty.  This is a city that doesn't have the trappings of a dirty urban jungle.The jungles here are real.  Outside my doors, you can see vast expanse of sugar plantation.  Beyond is a towering mountain, majestic in all its greeness. I am a city-bred creature. So I'm used …

Space for the Ramblings in My Head

Well, here I am again, creating another weblog. I already have several weblogs. Some I created long ago I already forgot their passwords.I hope this one will last.  I don't know yet what will I do with this blog.  Well, I want this to be my own personal space in a really public place.I am Jay Pascual. I work as a freelance web content writer. It sounds good but overtime, writing web content dulls the mind.  Before writing for the web, I consider myself a poet.I compose poems, I write essays, and I ramble. When I started writing for the web, I forgot my literary skills.  I cannot even compose a single free verse anymore.Maybe keywording has done its tricks on me. The longer you write for dumb people, the deeper your dumbness will be.Now I know what will I do with this blog.  I can use this as therapeutic tool. For some time now I want to write for myself. I want to write my thoughts, I want to write my feelings, I want to feel how to write again.I hope this blog would help me do th…
