I wish all my readers the best this holiday season! Blessings to you and your loved ones.
I am sharing with you a poem that appeared in the November 2024 issue of the Philippine Graphic. I do not always write poetry so this is “rare” if you will. Further, the Graphic, along with Focus Philippines and Mr. & Ms. were some of the magazines that published my early writings, and so this publication of “My Mother’s Skirts” is special to me.
You can still get a copy of the November 2023 Graphic from Lazada. To those abroad, I am sharing this snapshot of the cover and page with my story.
