Legend of Amansinaya II


  Was it from a dream or from a whisper of a wind 

  That I first heard this story?
  I thought it melancholy
  Then, now it is just all but lovely


 Forlorn and helpless,
  Kalangitan often shed his tears
  Tears that would reach her eventually
  Tears that would keep her hopes


Yes, for she is the cradle of infinite hopes
  She is the hammock of dreamers
  Wishes in deep thought and reflections she keeps
  Alas, that ember, that is true love
  Distance cannot douse

Amansinaya often fled
  Higher and higher she ascended
  It was in the mountains, in the cover of trees
  She hid


 It was there she felt closest to the sky
 She prayed
  Yes, she prayed
  For there is a higher god than his father, the sun god
  That the sun god, his father, know not of
  For this mightier god is unseen by eyes
  Unseen by eyes, unheard, untouched, unreal to the senses
  Of lesser gods

  For he is the mightiest
  He wills to reside in the prayerful hearts
  That is home to any powerful god

Amansinaya, for her heart is pure and noble and true
  The mighty god listened, took heed, and decreed
  Through his mortal men and women, 
  His stewards,
  He built for her a water kingdom
  High up in the mountains
  Where there was none before it

 It was blessed with bountiful beauty
  It was her water kingdom
  It was blessed to be filled not by sadness
  But only by mirth and joy and happiness

It was her water kingdom
  Born of love and remembrance
  A gift for peace and forgiveness
   Forgiveness, yes
  For Amansinaya loved her father
  And knew he meant well
  Her father loved but knew not how to love

Forgiven, shamed, and humbled,
  He, too, prayed
  The sun god knew now why he is a lesser god
  For once upon a time he loved his daughter true
  But loved himself so much
  So unknowingly so much more

 While the greater god
  Greater that is he  
  Gives and forgives
  That is love that is much so much more

In the sea kingdom
  This story is retold
  Never to be forgotten

 Was it from a dream or from a whisper of a wind 
  That I first heard this story?
  I thought it melancholy
  Then, now it is just all but lovely



This is an invitation for you and your family to enjoy a weekend of closeness to nature. What is there that attracted Amansinaya? What is there that inspired me to write poetry?

Amansinaya Mountain Water Resort is located within the Las Haciendas Evergreen Communities in Laurel, Batangas, Philippines.

Micah 7:18-19
Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
