mt. pico

Tuktok ng Bundok

Inakyat ang mataas na bundok
Hindi inalintana ang pagod
Pinilit makarating sa tuktok
Di alintana sakit ng likod

Kahali-halina ang tanawin
Tila langit kaya mong abotin
Malamig pa ang simoy ng hangin
Pagod ay di mo na mapapansin

Pag-akyat di mo pagsisisihan
Tiyak na nanaising balikan
Isama iyong mga kaibigan
Tuklasin ganda ng kalikasan

Hello! It’s been a while since I posted something here. 

So yesterday, me and my friends went for a hike (it’s my first time!!) . That was about 3 hours of hiking from the starting point (Ternate, Cavite) up to the peak (Mt. Pico De Loro, Maragondon) Good thing the weather cooperated so the hike went well. Reaching the peak was a liberating feeling and after taking a few photos (and selfies, of course) I was inspired to draw the peaks from the campsite. 

The first one’s the well-known Parrot’s Beak monolith (it was called such because from the monolith’s top, it actually looks like  parrot head). I denied myself the chance to climb the monolith (ew, loser) because it started to rain and I was afraid that I might slip off the cliff, so I drew it instead.

The second one was drawn from the campsite. That right there is the monolith and the peak itself. Climbing up the peak was so tiring because the mountain slope was too steep. It’s an unfinished sketch because my friends were rushing me to finish already because they needed to climb up the monolith already. 

The experience was awesome, too awesome, we’re already planning our next hike—Mt. Pulag!!!!

I’m part of the nature.

These are some of my pictures that really summed up my summer. Yes, I  still manage my time to have my summer getaways despite that there’s no really summer vacation when you’re working. I really need to have my schedule fixed for me to travel during the weekends. Good thing I still have my two-days off from work and thank God it’s every Saturday and Sunday.

I think I’m part of the nature. I don’t know. I find peace when I’m at the top of the mountain, when I feel the cold winds and the texture of the sand on my feet. I feel like I’m one of them. I find myself in awe, when I climb on the mountains, when I’m in the forest and in the wild. 

I want more. More of the nature. More of the mountains, the wild and the oceans.

Whenever you are stressed or worried or uneasy, take a nice long walk in the nature, touch the ground with your feet, touch the trees with your hands, and the Divine nature of life will flow into you to ease your pain. ~GWYTK fb
