About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Here, this plant is called Thorn of the Lord. Its flowers are red like the drops of the blood which appeared on the Saviour's forehead after he was croned with thorns. Interesting lines !

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
