Minsan may isang Tanga

Minsan may isang umasa
Naniwala
Na sa bawat sulyap
Bawat tingin
May ibig sabihin.

Sa mga oras na kausap siya
Pinangarap
Ang makasama siya sa byahe
Pauwi
Sa bahay,
Sa tahanang bubuuin…

Sa alapaap.
Sa kawalan.
Wala.
Naglaho, gumuho…

Ang noon sanay magandang pagkakaibigan biglang naglaho, gumuho.

Ang mga larawang ipininta sa isipan… naglaho, gumuho..

Ang mga pangakong hindi napanindigan,
Di nabitawan.. di nasabi,

Di naipadama.

Kasi nga,
Minsan,
Kahit ilang medalya, tropeyo, kampyonato, ang iyong mapanalunan,
Di maiiwasan,
Sa pagmamahal,
Minsan, may isang tanga.

Oh Baby, Baby

I easily get well around with those cute young humans. The playful, mischievous, hyperactive creatures.

What is in me that they are attracted to?  my sweat? scent? angelic face?

IDK.

They all just somehow come to me.

One time at church, there was this baby, maybe 9 months or so, who wanted to play peek-a-boo with me. So, with the copy of liturgy in hand, I entertained the both of us.

I don’t have a doctorate in child psychology but here are a few tips on how to hypnotize get along with those miniatures:

1. Make eye contact.
2. Don’t be intrusive. Allow them to move accordingly. Let them come to you.
3. Never force them.
4. Bribe them with food.
5. Avoid handling (kissing, pinching, shaking) them too much.

6. Maging isip-bata!  Be child-like!
