    nostalgia ***** WHEN I GO HOME TO PALILAN

    (written a night before I go back home, Manila to Palilan, Jimenez, Mis.Occ. circa 2000)

    Israel At 50 Years Revival

    I was there when you, a dream so distant
    An old narrative, a wish of a people so ancient.
    You were defunct yet alive in their mind every instant,
    Fanned and revived by lives so enormously patient. Two thousand years, turbulent and mostly tragic, read more »
