Treasure Island

Rommel Mark Dominguez Marchan

(Pilipinas / a.k.a. Jetfellow Marchanism)

*WERE WE JUST BORN TOO LATE?


Who destroy the wilderness
of the wild?

who mourn the denuding
wilderness?
we, the descendants

Do we blame our exploiting ancestors?

Do we start reviving the wilderness?

Were we just born too late?

we, the last of all, should be the wilderness savers!


****** wriiten after the tragic flashflood in Tugbok district, Davao City,
Philipines that curtailed many lives and properties,30 June 2009.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
