Down the Mountain

Down the pine-studded mountain and towards the sea
Me, mounted on a rickety, swaying, desperately-desiring bus,
Floorboard splotched with rusted holes revealing
Below my feet 
and salted sea wind soon
Breathing down my neck.

The Luzon day stretched before me, road
Singing in it's curves
drowning out Philippine faces painting 
 Collages of
colors and years.

Revealing Spanish lighthouses beckoning
Lost souls and
Scattering gold onto
ivory shores.

One hour later,
Nerves frayed from endless bumps,
I tumble onto the palm-fringed beach to 
Waves cresting like glittering
Champagne and  a 
Delicately worn grandmother  being
Gingerly dipped into the 
Azure Softness like a
 Queen Cat in a 
Cherub's cradle.
