Felino A. Soriano

morning this fragmented salutation


the hand of your repose
visceral, raises a saluting manifest
experiential understanding, amid
cultural rejoice within awakening’s
multilingual aggregations


the body becomes vertical accentuation,
mobilizing ambulation
performing silent steps of a dancer’s
earliest exclamation—
portend behind curtain’s opaque clarity
the retreat becomes history of horizons and
desolate retrieval of the mind’s
elongated and interrelated


all motion now adjusted,
the bend of each moment’s
ascertained concern
relives echo of effort’s rejoice:
the rest of morning’s silence
confirms adjusted emblems as
sacred dualities of darkened cycles,
isolated certainties
