“Hints of Pink” – Makati, 28 April 2016

blossoming
despite the
gloom
despite the
smoke
despite this
infernal miasma
lingering
over this
city.

blooming
amidst the
bustle
amidst the
chaos
amidst this
cold madness
gripping the
denizens.

delicate
fragile
tender
yet strong
enough
to face
the odds
to weather
the worst
and still
come through
in full
in gorgeous
bloom.
