Miss Nerisa del Carmen Guevara at the World Poetry Day Celebration, “A Walk Through Words at the Gardens" at the Ayala Triangle Gardens.

"My Shanghai Love"

To find love

Decipher the lines on faces

Look for a face that reads:

I am here.



Find a face that shows you shelter

Eyelids like archways

Leading into small gardens.

Black door of the iris leading

To the soul.



Chimes of sunlight

Saying:

Come home

Come home.



(for Maningning)

I think she added a few lines during her performance, or she did repetitions on some lines for emphasis/to extend the poem. Either way, it was still beautiful. 

PS. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAM G! :)
