"Dancing Waters" - Makati, 06 October 2015
“Dancing Waters” – Makati, 06 October 2015

a quiet

walk

through the

chaos

around me;

lost in

contemplation

of dancing

waters,

of whistling

breezes

of trees

flourishing

despite the

smoke and

sound and

sight of

urban sprawl.

 

and i

come to

terms

with the

truth:

there is

more to

life

than deadlines

than schedules

than the

soul-crushing

routine

i follow

day in

day out;

and i

raise

my eyes

to the

skies,

wondering

what to

do

where to

go

next.
