Boracay Sunset

This is my 300th post. I started this blog as an aide for me in my reviews for the bar and this blog somewhat progressed to be a travel and photo blog. Traveling has always been my passion and photography is one of my silent hobbies. However, I would never forget this blog's root so you will see an occasional law topic along the way.


Every night
The horizon lights up
Swirls of pink and orange
Fading to blue and purple...


Few bother to look anymore
At a blessing
That only comes once a day...


Each sunset is different
No two exactly alike
Difference flows throughout
While it is the only similarity...



Over the ocean
Or through the sky scrapers
Out on the prairie
Or in an apartment...


You can still see a piece
A piece of something
Something never to return
A sunset...


For the colors are shimmering
For a moment they stay
Only to disappear into change
Change just as beautiful as the last...



This is why
No matter where you go
One thing remains the same,
A difference in sunsets

In your very own sunset.



Thank you for your company in my previous posts and hope that you continue to share your time with me in the next 300 posts. This is law, travel and photography in Islands Philippines... this is LAWTUDE's JOURNEYS.

  23. I am so happy and elated to see that you've now got 300 posts! The most important thing is how good and valuable your entries are! It's probably worth 30,000 of my normal entry ;) Keep on blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  24. 300!! Parang yung movie na 300 aqng dating! Your 300 warriors went to war and trampled the masses with awe and inspirations! Congratulations!

    It is a mystery to me that you associated your 300th post with sunsets. And those were really magnificent sunsets. I just love sunsets and sunrise'. With every sunset there is a sunrise. I hope to have a glimpse of the sunrise in Boracay.. the ones you have captured not to imprison but to set free and be admired in the world wide web.

    More power to you my friend and God bless.

    my earlier posts are about law topics i needed for the bar and i believe that my only readers are myself and few classmates of mine.

    when i finished the bar and waiting for the results, my post transformed to travels, TV and yes... Aubrey Miles.

    now that i am a lawyer, my hobby of travel and photography took the centerstage.

    i am just glad that i have reached this far.

  107. Awesome shots! Sunset will forever remind me of special moments.

    In Manila bay with our father when we were kids, in Anilao Batangas with a special friend almost a decade ago, in Boracay with some friends who literally made me hold the sun in my palm last February, and in the Sunset Deck at SM-MOA with my son.

    A character in a book said, "No one can possess a sunset like the one we saw that evening... It is through such moments that God reveals himself to mankind."

    ReplyDelete
