entry arrow10:30 PM | Winton Lou Ynion, 1981-2009



"I cried with Jaypee de Guzman somewhere in my past." He wrote that once, and it made me laugh. Winton Lou Ynion was a Palanca-winning writer, and a good friend, although we never met. Ours was a writerly friendship sustained through email, but no matter, his passing, at the age of 28, still comes as a shock to me. He was so young. His poetry and his passion will be missed.

This is a short poem he wrote years ago...

Bagyo

bagamat
mahirap
kang
mabighani
sa
pagdaan
mo’y
nabighani
ang
lahat

And yes, Win, you charmed us all.
