INFORMATION
Katha8 is a doting mother of an only son, a proud grandmother to a beautiful little girl, and just lost her husband Nov 24, 2010 due to complications of cancer.The screen name is chosen because 'Katha' is the Filipino word for creation and the number 8 is like the symbol for infinity, going up. She discovered that she could write, already a little late towards her matured years.Physics, Mathematics and painting were her first love and a friend's encouraging review of a children story she had written in collaboration with her then very young son made her aware of her writing abilities.Ever since she wrote and made reviews at FanStory, nobody could uproot her from her computer table. Although a little late for a new career to be developed, she hopes to become a professional writer someday.

Writing at FanStory is better than attending formal schooling in Creative Writing. Each piece of work posted is scrutinized and corrected to the details because of the numerous members willing to do the review.And it is so much fun!

katha8: MY GUARDIAN DOG

My guardian dog faithful as can be
Doing tricks to protect the best of me
Over and above the rainbow I hear him bark
When I cry for help as enemies lurk

When I walk the streets to do some errands
He smells the enemy through his hair strands
And when the evil one poses to attack me
He would turn to the culprit to set me free

katha8: YOUR TRUSTING EYES HEALS MY PAIN

Your trusting eyes heals my pain
A child swimming across an accumulated rain
Waking every fiber of flesh to a new hope
Never surrendering soul beyond God's scope

Planning for a place for me under the sun
Never to surrender to a conqueror's span
An army of toddlers giving you cover
To answer an enemy's abuse a broken shoulder

katha8: WHEN LOVE SINGS A MELODY

When love sings a melody
It keeps on haunting me
As your memory does linger
With my heart embraced by forever

When love sings a melody
I remember how it used to be
Coming around with yesterday
Will heartache forever stay?

katha8: i am now in the process of self publication of my book on poetry that i wrote here at fanstory. i did not pay for copyright or isbn since i believed it can be arranged with the site.

    redrider6612: The POD or self publishing company should provide the ISBN and you never buy a copyright for a book you wrote.

katha8: I feel haunted by people from the past who are waiting for recognition for a new beginning...some comes back from the dead I believe as little children born anew. I take each sign for my purpose, and duty one at a time, with the guidance of our community during the Catholic mass, at the nun's chapel every morning.
