Photo taken inside the LRT using my camera phone. Read about Berso sa Metro a week ago and actually saw the posters last Tuesday inside the new trains. It was actually good to read verses of beautiful poem in Spanish and Tagalog versions... the corresponding images are beautiful as well.
Berso sa Metro (Verse in the metro) is a campaign from the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) management, Instituto Cervantes Manila, and the Filipino-Spanish Friendship Day committee. It aims to encourage reading for the thousands of daily passengers of the LRT.
Here's a sample of a verse from Pablo Neruda (though its not the one in the photo)
cuando mis pasos van
cuando vuelven mis pasos
niegame el pan, el aire,
la luz, la primavera,
pero tu risa nunca
porque me morira
kapag ako ay umalis
kapag ako ay bumalik
ipagkait mo na sa akin ang tinapay,
ang hangin, ang liwanag at ang tagsibol
huwag lamang ang iyong ngiti
dahil ito'y aking ikasasawi
so cheesy eh? =) if you're one of LRT's regular commuter, try to look up and read these verses... enjoy the ride!
