adventure ***** STANDING ON MACTAN BRIDGE 2


for uncle nestor and auntie helen marchan-alindajao and family
Mandaue City 2002

sight touches bountiful scenes
360 degrees of exquisite modernity
seen above concrete bar
connecting Lapu-lapu and Mandaue
across Mactan channel

dreamy eyes where vision lies
sailing besides giant ferries
global containers, importer tankers
along concrete banks
mammoth depots
and the sweet-to-ride supercat
water jet from tantalizing distant
dearly pass below

coastguard tugboat bumping
the walls of cruiser lines
and then
the red ghost of sunset
bidding adieu
to the silvery foams
gliding with Cebuano breeze

the entire city turns into al ive disco infierno
dancing lights glittering
nuisance PUJ crawling up
by leap and bound
fetching commuters picking hour
bound for reclamation government site
a collection of solid garbage
extending the isles
anti-corals and anti-reefs

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
