CANVASS—2(blue) -revised

(Devoted to Mrs Catrina Heart a great poet of Phillipines)

I like blue sky

deep blue sea

your blue eyes

depth of which is unfathomable

I like the way the blue sky

sees its face in the sea

I fail to understand

wasn’t it your eyes on me?

I like the delft-blue porcelain

glazed with oxide of tin

that carried along


dynasty of Italy,

France and Spain

but I never liked

the blue-blood royals

whose uncontrolled passion,


have destroyed

village after village

in the name of making them loyal
