(in Philippine, northeast wind)


Where I live,

When the weather

Comes from the east,

An unusual day

Arrives with it


Different time is allowed,

No value yet, not

Good or bad


Will the air be dense

With drenched nuclei,

Will the sky be sliced:


Will weighted water

Pummel us from above


Then, once cleansed—no,

Purged—and dried


Will we breathe

An ameliorating atmosphere

As a gift from no one

We know how to thank


Valued thus rendered

In innocence


With feet wet

From Eden’s tears,

We tread home

To do our best

To make

A heaven here
