040309A beauty on my hands
4/5/2009 4:11:43 PM

i touch my lips with whisper
talking to my self with wonder
with these fingers i hold beauty
with this mind i create imagery
but when does dove journey ends
when wings tired and sky dims

in a glimpse of time i still remember
rubbing my hands to ease my rattler
blowing air to deflate my lungs; settle
but if it failed, crawl into my comforter
it could be smell or warmth it offers
i fall asleep; wakes up feeling better

today for some reason everything failed
i end up daydreaming rolling on my bed
i chuckled, grab my putter and played
i might have putted so many balls, sigh
only remarkable change is time flies
you know what i miss you i won’t lie

Can anyone please interpret the meaning of these posts? Do they have meaning? It's either the author is a super genius that I cannot grasp what he tries to convey or I am an absolute idiot that I do not understand any of the posts here. What I understand are just blah blah blah and group of nonsense words that are too flowery. Can the honorable author please simplify the posts for the sake of those who have elementary English like me please! I will copy the posts here and send them to my former professor in English Literature to please decipher them for me if they have meaning.

you are not nor i am. my apology if you didn't understand. please read it twice and slow. never learn to hate what you can't understand. i believe
poems are written with multiple meanings. you as a reader give those

It is not true that poems have multiple meanings or that a reader gives meaning to them. If the above statement is correct, what are the other interpretations of Rizal's Mi Ultimo Adios? What other meanings can thousands of readers spoonfeed to it? How could the works of Filipino, English, American poets be interpreted in as many was as there are readers? How many meanings can be given to those? In Rizal's Sa Aking Mga Kababata or the poems of Hermenegildo Viloria, what other meanings they have aside from what the writer intends to disseminate? If the above statement is correct, there would be no more literary criticism for what is the point of criticizing when one's interpretation or understanding of a poem is absolutely correct in his/her own right? Come on sir! On the other hand, that observation is not far from truth if the poem engulfs words such as thequickbrownfoxjumpsovertheheadofthelazydog.

there are readers who look beyond. there are readers who read word for
word. there are readers who just read the title. there are readers who refuse
to read.

Your statement is also true when you change the READER into WRITER. May I also add that there are writers who insist that they can write --- and readers who insist that they can read. Thank you Sir. I know that you are an Literature professor. Good luck! Salamat na balbaleg.
