“A drop of poetry in a world of prose.”
~ is what I would want my life to be.
I love reading prose, but in writing I prefer poetry.
I’m a fisherwoman in May, and tries to write poems the rest of the year.
Most of my poems are inspired by the sea.
I live in a town named Dalaguete, named after a tree — the dalakit.
I love trees and I also would love to write about them.
My hometown is two to three hours away from Cebu City. And Cebu is the “Queen City of the South” in Central Visayas; Visayas as center of the three island groups of the Philippines.

Literature for me is the soul of life, with books as their body.
I love literature and so I study and enjoy it as much as I can.
My poems are usually written in notebooks but I’m blessed to have dear friends who encourage me, so I share them to the world…
And maybe, just maybe, somewhere out there, kindred spirits will find meaning in the words here.
