Passing through a mountain where the paths wove

I saw a crow on the side of the road

Pick up a plastic bag and fly away.

I have seen a lot today.

 

The world around is glistening green

Some fog is curling in the air.

If I had only the time to spare

I’d stay. I’d fill my soul to its brim.

 

Note: This one is kind of old. I wrote this in March on a trip to my Dad’s hometown.

A picture of Cagbalete’s shoreline taken from a nearby rock island called Bonsai (named for its small cluster of mangroves that look like bonsais).  In the mornings the tide gets so low that you could be walking for a kilometer or so and you’d only be shin or even ankle deep in water. This particular view looks like Moses has just parted the sea.

Mornings are the best time to walk around and see various sea creatures up close.  The island is teeming with life, and there are crabs, different species of starfish, sea cucumbers, barnacles, and a whole bunch of strange seaweed around.

Cagbalete Island, Philippines.  I want to go back to this beautiful place.
