Felino A. Soriano- Poetry

from Quintet Dialogues: translating introspection

Of drums


thinking then when again
tasked into the taking hand of
reflectional catching

what is torn from the throwing of the self
often returns in the duality of praise (thought)
or regret (thought) and a mirror of

motion leads into a status of sorrow or
flowering smell leaving footsteps
across the forehead of the personal


of the appearance of silence
                                                            pulls purposes tallies tasks

engages with what engrains and the autonomy of knowing

examines in the possibility of language’s

                                                renewing                     echoes


an excitement slides
in the impulses of triggering rhythms

individualizing each moving idea
motivating such hands and their

object-touch interacting solace
