“Mga Alon Sa Dalampasigan”

Sa mag-damag na trabaho’y sa tumba-tumbang upuan ako ay napapikit
Hindi namalayan ako na pala ay nananaginip
Kasama ang pamilya bumiyahe ng milya- milya
Binaybay ang mahaba at paliko-likong kalsada
Tinawid at nilampasan ang tulay na nagdudugtong sa bawat mapa Continue reading “Mga Alon Sa Dalampasigan”

“Ang Alamat ng Pagkukunwari”

Kunwari nagpupuyat
Mata’y di na mapuknat
Nakikipagtitigan sa hanging walang lamat
Nagsisigasig, mapalaya lamang ang alamat. Continue reading “Ang Alamat ng Pagkukunwari”

“Mga Munting Bubuyog”

O kay gandang pagmasdan
Mga munting nilalang ni Kabunyan
Na lumilipad-lipad at nag-uunahan
Sa kapaligiran ay napapakinabangan

“Bubuyog” kung sila ay tawagin
Umaali-aligid sa ating mga hardin
Upang humanap ng makakain
Mga bulaklak ay kanilang sisipsipin

Mayroong iba’t-ibang kulay
Mga pakpak na kumakampay
Karaniwan sila ay sabay-sabay
Kung pumasok sa kanilang bahay

Sa una ay kinakatakutan
Lalo na ang mga kabataan
Nakakatanda at di nakakaalam
Tulong nila ay di mapapantayan

Kung inyo lang pakinggan
Mga awitin nila ay nakakalibang
Mga maamo nilang pigura’y
Nakakadagdag kulay sa buhay

Munti man sila kung iyong titignan
Napakalaki naman ang kahalagahan
Sa mga nag-aalaga at magsasakang uliran
Pati na sa ating malawak na kapaligiran

Samu’t saring bagay ang kanilang dulot
Lalong lalo na ang kanilang pulot
Bunga ng mga halaman ay pina-parami
Dagdag kita kapag dumami ang ani

Sana ay mamulat itong yaring tao
Mga karaingan ng mga bubuyog na ito
Mga kalahi nawa’y di tuluyang maglaho
Bagkus preserbahin at hayaang lumago


I am Celso Roger B. Baldo. A proud son of Igorot parents with a bloodline from the Ilocos region. I am blessed with two gentle sons and a loving beautiful wife.

In the Philippines, after a short stint at the DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources), I worked at Department of Agriculture-CECAP as a Forester in the Philippines assigned in the different hinter lands of the Cordillera Region.

I went to work in Australia as a beekeeper. I shifted to New Zealand with my family searching for a better opportunity. I then worked here as a beekeeper but now I am a full time carer working in an age care facility while looking after our own hives with my family. It is in this occasion that paved my love of writing again after ages of dormancy.

I firmly believe that life is a journey and education is continuous with technology advancement without compromising the environment. I write poems related to nature, health and well being, life experiences, short haikus and share it to support and hopefully inspire others.

I acquired my Bachelors degree in Forestry in Benguet State University in the Philippines. As my parents are poor enough to send me to college, I acquired scholarship through sports and
being a Supreme Student Council member in my higher collegiate years aside from being a sponsored child by then Word Vision/VSRDI.

I also gained qualification on Level 3, General Knowledge on Beekeeping at Telford Southern Institute of Technology, now a division of Lincoln University. I also have a Level 3 Certificate of Health and Well being by Careerforce. Both institutions are located here in New Zealand.
