Filipina shares her poem about nature: ‘Remedy’

This #POPCreators entry was submitted by Mary Jane Boholano. Here is her poem about nature:


Early this morning, the sun was greeted
by an offbeat rural symphony
of birds’ boisterous screeching,
roosters’ majestic crowing,
and crickets’ resolute chirping,
against the stark contrast
of the looming pillars of Skyway 3,
and a jungle of heavy machinery,
locked in suspended animation
four days since the lockdown.

Mother Nature is fast reclaiming urbanity,
of everything that is rightfully hers.
It is as though she took a healthy dose
of the plague to rid herself
of the malady that is humanity,
As though we are her infirmity
and pestilence her remedy.
