Day 17: Subic Rhapsody

You can tell
in this January afternoon
the gods 
have blessed us 
the way the coconut leaves sway 
to the direction of the sea
the chill swirling around the nape
whisking salt in the air
as the smoke scatters 
in this bayside bar;
we could have been 
in an air-conditioned room
on the 52nd floor in BGC,
away from the elements,
pampered by modern man’s facilities. 
Yet time and space have crossed 
and willed us to be here
as the sun descends
the wind upon our faces.
