A tenant in the world

Born in limited space
Time borrowed
Limitless possibilities
Enabling arms of friendship
Deepening relationship
A spark of the universe sharing.




“Two remarkable endeavors which highlighted concerns for mankind. Recognizing how humanity should trek over the pulsating reality which would encompass and create endless stories to tell.”

RMAC 2015

After the 2013 Historical forum at the National Museum, where Philippines was envisioned as POETRY HUB OF THE WORLD by the visionary insight of our founder, Doc Penpen B. Takipsilim,  now, came an opportunity to meet an International Poet Señor Romeo Della Valle whom everyone found out as a true friend and  brother to all. He tackled things in the nicest manner. He emphasized in every word how love enflamed in the midst of every endeavor. Like a pure clear water, he sparkled transparently. It is simply Poetry manifesting within himself.

The plans made for the following events assimilated new challenges. Most often, there’s a need to be truly emotionally and psychologically strong to be able to face every obstacle. There were stern sacrifices that required one’s difficult time and efforts.


17 MAY 2015

Having etched its mark in the world of today, PENTASI B with the cooperation of the Local Government Unit of Rizal has made a great step to realizing a dream to make Rizal a sanctuary of Poetry World or Señor Romeo would say it, the “MECCA FOR POETRY WORLD”.

It is definitely a challenging day ahead walking through that very high hanging bridge that connects the Cloud 9’s 360 degrees and Cloud 9’s reception hall.  Symbolically, the group has commenced to trek through its higher challenges.
The event began with a prayer that expressed the members’ salute to life and universal love. It was followed by inspirational messages that embodied brotherhood and life. Then came next was a very friendly and inspiring note from its New York –based Poet, Sir Romeo Della Valle. Afterwards, the different voices of wisdom, encouragements, poetic talents and devotions mixed into the air. Soon after, one could hear nothing but hearts and minds of Pentasian Poetry. There were exchanges of gifts, notes, poems, laughters, well-wishes, and most of all, envisioning a firm-as- an-ancient-rock hope. A hope that through dynamic events like this, Rizal as the town and birthplace of the Father of Visual Poetry, Doc Penpen B. Takipsilim, will in the future be acknowledged not only in this country but in the other corners of the world as the Sanctuary for all poets from all walks of life. And that also, a world poetry gallery in Rizal will soon be realized.


Getting across the Pentasi B message to the youth is the advocacy of Doc Penpen and Senor Romeo Della Valle. How PENTASI B Poetry like visuals can contribute in harnessing them, and how one could possibly express himself with much freedom in making his life more meaningful.

25th of May 2015 has been a great time for MSEUF Catanauan to feel, savor and share the true essence of Poetry as it was greatly expressed through the artistry and charm of Doc Penpen B. Takipsilim and Sir Romeo Della Valle.

During the inception of Pentasi B in the said university, poetry specifically Visual ones as seen was immensely appreciated by the Enverga Catanauan audience. Sincere enthusiasm was felt through attentive listening and lively interactions. The event has definitely helped them to get involved and encouraged to explore and learn more things that make up poetry.  Students presented many ways or forms of poetry which greatly impressed the key note speakers, Doc Penpen and Señor Romeo.

No wonder! PENTASI B’s dream to inspire the hearts and minds of the youth in exploring their creativities and knowledge is now taking its shape. The group is making real positive steps not just to inspire the young ones but also, those young-at- heart. The Poetry event that has happened in Catanauan was both a celebration and a re-discovery. It was indeed a celebration of Friendship and a re-discovery of life’s substance through Poetry.

PENTASI B looks forward to more Local and International Events which will further strengthen its mission to Heal, to Inspire and to Awaken.

Philippines The Poetry Hub of the world


By: Roy Mark Corrales

Better late than never. Our major newspapers have not taken serious notice of this particular event, PENTASI B Historical Forum, maybe because of the consequent chaos and sufferings brought to the Philippines by typhoon Yolanda. However, this auspicious and sterling event transpired among poets around the world gives the country renewed strength and pride. The global gathering of poets was inspired by a single man, a poet and a doctor himself, Doc PenPen, as he is endearingly called. It was his innovative and extraordinary exploration to the new poetic form; an approach that revolutionized poetry. His creation, PENTASI B is recognized by leading and famous poets around the world. Accolades and awards kept streaming in for him which he humbly accepted. For this reason alone, the Philippines, particularly the Filipino poets accorded the same appreciation and pride for our esteemed poet, Doc PenPen. He truly earned the title Father Of Visual Poetry. Thus, the convergence of poets from different nationalities was born in Manila last November 15, 2013. The National Library of the Philippines under the stewardship of Dir. Antonio M. Santos, a lawyer and the Philippine National Museum co-sponsored the said event.

The confluence of the poets was indeed an affair to remember. Being acquainted and touching shoulder to shoulder among them would be considered as their defining moments; Internationally renowned poets hobnobbing with our fellow compatriots. The intimacy among them was so heartening specially when each one had an impromptu speech, some were emotionally charged that fellow poets supported them.

Then, came the testimonies of the respected global poets. Ashok K. Bhargava, a poet laureate, founder and president of Writers International Network Society (WINS) Canada and World Poetry Ambassador to India and Nepal, said in a nutshell that Filipinos are natural poets since they have this deep sense of sentimentality. He further added that PENTASI B is a must read among poets to study and appreciate its intrinsic values that go beyond the words incorporating the visual.

An inspiring poet coupled with charm and beauty was Zayra Yves. A multi-awarded poet, she lauded PENTASI B and encouraged us to try to delve into it with avidity. By dissecting it, we would realize that visual poetry encompasses among other things, our day to day living. Another respectable lady, Lily Rose Tope, Ph.D., professor in Asian Comparative Literature at the University of the Philippines, discussed PENTASI B POETRY in the forum. She stressed that PENTASI B belongs to Postmodern Poetry. A form of poetry that deviates from the norms everyone knows. It is an unorthodox approach of conveying message to the readers. Be that as it may, she and other international and local poets re-affirmed our Philippines’ national pride and honor, Doc PenPen as the Father Of Visual Poetry, a very well deserving title.

PENTASI B was articulately expounded by a World Empowered Poet awardee, Caroline Nazareno . It is an acronym of P-hilosophical, E-volving/E-xtraordinary, N-ew genre encompassing all kinds of visual poetry, T-echnologies (which includes 4Ms-Multilingual, Multi-modal, Multi-sensorial and Multi-dimensional), A-rts and aesthetics, S-cience, 4 Is Improvement, Innovation, Invention, I-heart , and B-io or the Life.

Briefly, PENTASI B is a poetic composition of philosophy, science, psychology, pathology and geometry. An amazing feat indeed! Who could have thought of this nobel idea of incorporating the aforementioned into an artistic meaningful form of poetry but Doc PenPen!

The most awaited number in the program was the awarding of trophies, medals and certificates to all deserving global and local poets . This is a testimony that we are all poets in the true sense of the title. That we too, should explore the unknown to seek the Holy Grail of Poetry, so to speak. In closing, may we reiterate our deepest gratitude to Director Antonio M. Santos , the head of the National Library of the Philippines, and the National Museum and last but not the least, Ms. Ceri Naz, organizer of the PENTASI B World Friendship Poetry Celebration 2013.

Recently, Doc PenPen B. Takipsilim (real name: Dr. Epitacio R. Tongohan, M.D.), has been awarded as The Most Outstanding Alumni in Career Achievement by UERM College of Medicine Alumni Association Inc., on February 6, 2014, at Solaire Resort, Parañaque, Philippines.
