Poem-7

On the Fantail, Leaving the Philippines

 

these islands

a thousand ripe memories

like perfumed clouds bringing soft rains

swelling the tropical streams of my soul

my heart

swims slowly

like the great sea turtles

endlessly roaming the Sibuyan Sea

with reptilian urgings to lay eggs again

on the warm brown sands of Luzon

on the bow there is only the future

and the wind like time in your face
