tourism ***** JAPANESE TOMB LANDCAPE


Narras in all breed
stand as receptionists
at the mouth of memorial gate
lichen-masked pines
strayed local guavas
near bridge across
artificial lagoon
heading to
hundred-steps penitencial ladder
approaching highest altitude
placid peak
for Lake Caliraya sightseeing
to wavy Sierra Madre foothills

I haven't seen this before
even in the eye of my
expectations
but oh!
I am dismayed
the red burning sun rushly hides
to rest

spectators are whistling now
in disgust and leaving
peace
for the final resting tomb
of Japanese

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
