Calapan, Mindoro Oriental, Philippines

Calapan, Mindoro Oriental, Philippines


Sitting at the grill house

Of my friends house

Up above the hill

Overlooking Calapan Bay

I can see the beauty

Of the nature before me.



The sun shines up above the sky

Green Islands left and right

Clear blue water of the sea

Behind the oil platform

Lies Batangas with its' stunning beauty.



Taken from the grill house of  my friends house.

Taken from the grill house of my friends house.

I close my eyes

Listening to the calming sounds of the waves

I breathe the salty air

My long black hair swinging back and forth

Dancing as the wild winds blow.



How I wish I can stay here forever

Observing the ships and SuperCat ferries

Passing very far from where I sit

From Batangas Port

To Calapan Port.


How I wish I can sit here forever

To see the fishermen fishing

With their rowing boats or motor boats

To hear the dangerous sounds of the waves

On a rainy and stormy days

Hitting the big brown rocks

Before reaching the shores.



How I wish I can be here

Waving my friend

From up above the hill

Welcoming her

Sailing from Manila Bay

To Calapan Bay.



Thanks to my friend Efsie and her family.
