Poem by Eden Soriano Trinidad
Nature at its Best
The chilling breeze shroud my bare nape.
My sleepy crown stood like a cape.
The horrendous laugh of a tropical cyclone
brought forth the Niagara falls in forlorn.
I heard the cold-deep breath longing
of the scenic-legendary Mt. Makiling,
and the heart-wrenching explosions of our Taal volcano,
peppered ashes all over the lake within a lake and, I shouted, Oh, no!
Then the eye-blinding lightning forks
rocketing with all force shocking the white storks,
earth has shaken again and again as sirens wail
engulfing and striking like a dragon hail.
My vision brought me to the lap of nature,
Our environment and the next generation.
Romancing with the flowers of many hues,
produces honey from Cerana bees.
The eggs of the squirming fishes and squids
perfectly nestled in the sea garden beds.
The third planet will not come to an end.
Let’s bow our heads with our knees bend!
